AAAI 2017 Diversity Workshop
CRA-W/CDC is proud to sponsor the 2017 AAAI Diversity Workshop via the Discipline Specific Workshop program. The goal of the workshop is to discuss issues facing members of underrepresented groups in AI, with emphasis on cases studies and best practices to change the situation at all levels, from K-12 to college level and in the workforce.
- studies on the causes of under-representation and how to address them;
- case studies and best practices to increase diversity of students;
- case studies and best practices to increase diversity in the work force (academia, industry, government, research labs).
The workshop will include:
- an invited speaker;
- a collection of presentations selected from peer-reviewed submissions;
- a panel;
- and small group discussions.
Anyone interested in addressing diversity in AI is invited to attend.
A limited number of scholarships from CRA-W/CDC are available for students from underrepresented groups who are US citizens/permanent residents.
