Funding Opportunities for Promoting AI Research

Next deadline for proposals: July 15, 2024

The Artificial Intelligence Journal (AIJ) is one of the longest established and most respected journals in AI, and since it was founded in 1970, it has published many of the key papers in the field. The operation of the Editorial Board is supported financially through an arrangement with AIJ's publisher, Elsevier. Through this arrangement, the AIJ editorial board is able to make available substantial funds, (currently of the order of 150,000 Euros per annum), to support the promotion and dissemination of AI research. Most of these funds are made available through a series of competitive open calls (the remaining part of the budget is reserved for sponsorship of studentships for the annual IJCAI conference).

The current call had a deadline of July 15, 2024, and a budget of 75,000 Euros.

We strongly prefer to fund in person events. However, this call will take into account that, after the COVID-19 situation, some events may still be online or in a hybrid format. We welcome requests for supporting this kind of events too, besides the in person events, if there is a compelling motivation for the participation format.

Free Access to the AI Journal

Thanks to an agreement between IJCAI and Elsevier, members of the scientific community who do not otherwise have access to the AI Journal are able to obtain free personal electronic access to the journal online contents via ScienceDirect.

Instructions about how to gain free access can be found here.

Potential authors should note that these arrangements mean that any article now submitted to the AI journal, once accepted, will always be available to anyone free of charge through these arrangements if they do not already have access to the journal.
