The AI-Based Assessments in STEM International Conference was held at the University of Georgia, in Athens, GA from May 25 to May 27, 2022. The conference was co-hosted by the AI4STEM lab at the University of Georgia and the CREATE for STEM Institute at Michigan State University. The conference brought together 41 researchers in AI, assessment, science learning, and educational technology from around the globe, with representatives from the US, Europe, and Asia. 

The conference featured several keynote speakers across all three days, who presented projects that successfully implemented AI with science assessments or addressed key challenges of integrating science assessments with AI. One day of the conference was filled with concurrent short talks from attendees to present current works in progress in AI with science assessments. The conference ended with participants working in affinity groups to identify challenges of applying AI in science assessments, as well as imagining possible future directions in AI applications that would advance the work related to the affinity group.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost at the University of Georgia generously funded this conference.
