AAAI-15 Robotics Fellowships
The Twenty-Ninth Conference on Artificial Intelligence
January 25–30, 2015, Austin, Texas USA
AAAI gratefully acknowledges the support of the National Science Foundation, which has made many of the AAAI-15 robotics activities possible.
Call for Participation
Application Deadline Extension!: October 5, 2014
We invite Ph.D. student applications for the AAAI-15 Robotics Fellowships. The fellowships aim to attract Ph.D. students from robotics labs that do not typically publish at artificial intelligence (AI) venues but would like to attend AAAI-15 and learn about AI techniques of relevance to robotics. The ideal candidates for the fellowships are Ph.D. students who are working on dissertation topics for which knowledge of artificial intelligence techniques is helpful but who have not yet had a chance to attend top AI conferences.
The fellowships will cover up to $1,000 of the students' expenses (plus free conference registration) to attend AAAI-15 in Austin, Texas from January 25–29, 2015 (www.aaai.org/aaai15). The fellowships will form part of several robotics-related activities at AAAI-15, including a Robotics Exhibition, an AI Robotics Early Career Spotlight talk, and a celebration of the Shakey project. The students will give short talks in a dedicated session about their dissertation topics and be provided with a variety of opportunities to interact with artificial intelligence students and senior researchers throughout the conference.
To apply, please send a single PDF to Brad Knox (email@example.com) by October 1, 2014, which should include:
- A two-page summary of your dissertation topic, with a short explanation of the relevance of AI techniques;
- A half-page statement about what you hope to get out of attending AAAI-15;
- Your CV, including a listing of all conferences attended so far; and
- A letter of support from your dissertation supervisor.
Please feel free to contact the Robotics cochairs if you have any questions.
