EAGxAustin 2024 will take place April 13-14 at the University of Texas at Austin! Applications will be opening in late January- fill out our interest form to be notified of the launch.

EAGxAustin is intended both for individuals new to the movement and those already professionally engaged with EA, and will cover a diverse range of high-impact cause areas. We’re especially excited to bring together individuals from Texas or the southern/central U.S. region, and we also welcome anyone in the U.S. or internationally who could provide and/or gain value from the event to apply!

Vision for the conference

One of our primary goals for this event is to strengthen communities and networks for those in southern/central U.S. areas, including Texas and cities such as Phoenix, Chicago, Albuquerque, L.A., and Denver. We're prioritizing applicants from these regions, but also encourage those from across the U.S. and internationally, especially those in EA-related careers or interested in mentoring to apply. Our aim is to bolster connections, support the development of new and existing EA communities in these regions, and enhance networking opportunities for these groups.

The conference will include talks related to high-impact careers and donating, workshops, office hours or roundtable Q&A events, group meetups (e.g. for community building, animal welfare, AI safety, etc.), and designated 1-on-1 spaces. If you have a specific speaker in mind or other content idea which you think would be particularly useful for you or others, please suggest content here. Err on the side of contributing--if you are engaged and excited enough about EAGxAustin to have an idea of what would help you, then you are someone we are excited to consider input from. We want to make EAGxAustin as beneficial and fulfilling for you (and all attendees) as we can.
