Diversity and Inclusion

AIED2023 follows the International Artificial Intelligence in Education Society (IAIED) conference diversity, equity and inclusion guidelines.

IAIED is fully committed to diversity, inclusion, equity, belonging, and justice as guiding principles of our scholarship and practice. Upholding these fundamental values strengthens who we are as an academic and professional society, and is essential to our positive impact on researchers, educators, learners, and the world. Importantly, as these goals and the work to achieve them require dynamic growth and change, we are committed to ongoing learning and improvement in how the society enacts inclusive and equitable policies. We warmly welcome all who share this mission.

AIED2023 Code of Conduct

The AIED conference welcomes everyone irrespective of their individual characteristics and circumstances. The conference provides an inclusive environment in which diverse participants present their work, share ideas, debate, network and enjoy the company of colleagues. Everyone should feel respected and should have no barriers to attend and participate.

AIED aims to be a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all participants regardless of their level of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or other similar characteristics.

To ensure that everyone feels safe and protected at all times, this Code of Conduct outlines ground rules that we expect everyone (e.g., presenters, participants, and volunteers) to adhere to:

  • Be professional and treat everyone with courtesy and respect.
  • Recognise everyone’s contribution and value how differences stimulate growth of ideas.
  • Try to understand multiple viewpoints and respect individual differences.
  • Acknowledge that an experience that is different to your own is no less valid.
  • When communicating, give prior consideration to the tone and content of your message.
  • Be respectful and mindful in your critique of ideas, and think about how your message may be received by the recipient and the impact that this may have on them.
  • Avoid any communication that causes the recipient to feel intimidated, degraded or humiliated.
  • Respect other people’s communication preferences, personal space, and rights to participate in conversation.

AIED does not tolerate any inappropriate behavior, including harassment, bullying or discrimination.

  • Harassment refers to unwanted conduct that has the purpose or effect of either violating another person’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that person.
  • Bullying refers to offensive, intimidating, malicious or insulting behavior which intentionally or unintentionally undermines, humiliates, denigrates or injures the recipient.
  • Discrimination refers to unfair or prejudicial treatment of people and groups because of their individual characteristics, such as gender, ethnicity, race, age, or sexual orientation.

Any cases of inappropriate behavior should be brought to the attention of the General Chairs and reported to the IAIED society:
