Submission Mentoring Program

The AISTATS 2022 organizing committee is pleased to announce a pilot program to assist underrepresented and/or first-time AISTATS submitters. This program will match submitters (mentees) with senior researchers (mentors) to provide targeted feedback on their AISTATS submission. Applications to receive/provide mentorship will be accepted on a rolling basis until September 20th, 2021 following this link.

To apply to be a mentee, please prepare a PDF of up to 3-pages with a draft/excerpt/extended abstract of your submission, and 2-4 names of senior researchers you would like to be matched with. While we cannot guarantee an exact match, we will try our best.

To apply to be a mentor, you should be an assistant professor+ (academia) or senior research scientist+ (industry). You can also nominate someone else. Mentors will be acknowledged on the AISTATS website.


Mentee/mentor expectations

Data sharing: For mentees, the PDF/extended abstract will be shared with senior researchers to organize a match. For both mentees/mentors, your contact info will be shared with your mentor/mentee once matched. Email aistats2022+mentorship@gmail.com if you have any questions.


The AISTATS 2022 chairs appreciate the help of all the mentors who kindly volunteered and contributed to the success of this program.
