The submissions must be generally related to the intersection of LGBTQIA+ representation and AI, or be research produced by LGBTQIA+ individuals. The submissions need not be directly related to the themes of the workshop, and they can be works in progress. Please refrain from including personally identifying information in your submission. No submissions will be desk-rejected.
We will open the call on Monday, September 20, 2021 and close it on Monday, November 15, 2021 Anywhere On Earth (AOE), with acceptance notifications going out on a rolling basis. Additionally, we are accepting submissions in any media, including---but not limited to---research papers, books, poetry, music, art, musings, tiktoks, testimonials. Submissions need NOT be in English. This is to maximize the inclusivity of our call for submissions and amplify non-traditional expressions of what it means to be Queer in AI. You can find excellent examples of “non-traditional” submissions here.
Furthermore, we encourage all undergraduates to submit their work. We will also publicize outstanding undergraduate research.
We will work to grant all individuals with accepted work free conference admission. All authors with accepted work will have FULL control over how their name appears in public listings of accepted submissions. Tentatively, the submissions will be presented in a joint affinity group poster session where you will have the option to present and answer questions in a Gathertown setting.
If you need help with your submission in the form of mentoring or advice, you can get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
