2019 Fall Conference

2019 HAI Symposium


The mission of the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered AI (HAI) is to advance AI research, education, policy and practice to improve the human condition. With this in mind, we are inviting the HAI community to “self-organize” small workshops to explore research themes in areas related to various aspects of human-centered AI. Our goal is to foster more interdisciplinary collaborations across campus and identify important research questions that advance HAI’s broad mission.

The faculty leader(s) are responsible for defining the workshop topic and inviting a suggestion of approximately 20 faculty and researchers to attend. If desired, HAI may provide nominal staff support and funding. The workshops themselves should require minimal preparation, as they are brainstorming sessions whose aim is to surface the major research questions and issues in the chosen area.

If you are a Stanford faculty member and interested in leading a workshop, please complete our workshop application. We will read and respond to your proposal expeditiously after submission. If you have questions, please contact HAI Events Manager, Celia Clark, at
