Call for papers: “Generative Methods: AI as collaborator and companion in the social sciences and humanities”, Copenhagen, 6-8th December 2023

A call for papers and experiments for Generative Methods: AI as collaborator and companion in the social sciences and humanities taking place in Copenhagen, 6-8th December 2023. Further details can be found here and copied below.

Conference dates: December 6-8, 2023
Location: Copenhagen, Aalborg University Campus

The advent of generative AI, such as large language models, chat bots, and text-to-image generation, has presented both opportunities and challenges for society. This conference seeks to explore the multifaceted impact of generative AI as instruments and objects of research. We invite contributions that demonstrate, speculate, and/or discuss the ways in which generative machine learning models will transform research methodologies and reshape research problems across SSH disciplines. How will generative models impact our understanding of data, analysis, and research ethics? What novel forms of research communication and stakeholder engagement could emerge? What technical and conceptual interventions will be necessary to repurpose them for different epistemic traditions? And how do we audit or establish rapport with them?

We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit their contributions in two formats:

  • Papers. We invite abstracts for papers that address the conference theme. Abstracts should summarize the main argument and not exceed 200 words.
  • Generative experiments. We also welcome proposals for experiments with generative AI that can be exhibited at the conference. Proposals should pitch the concept, describe the practical requirements, and not exceed 200 words.
