AAAI-17 Student Activites
The Thirty-First AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence February 4–9, 2017, San Francisco, California, USA
Student Activities Page (External Site)
The organizers of AAAI-17 are continuing the strong student outreach program developed in 2015 — in particular, making AAAI-17 student friendly by arranging a number of activities for students attending the conference. Many of these activities are open to broader audiences, and so they are also a good way for anyone to expand their knowledge of AI. There are many opportunities for both students and researchers to be involved. We have highlight several below.
Plan now to involve your students in AAAI-17!
AI Education Outreach Program
On Saturday, February 4, AAAI and EAAI will host an outreach program for local K-12 students and their students, where AI educators will demo/display their outreach activities.
Job Fair (External Site)
Call for Companies, Research Organizations and Universities to Participate — The AAAI/ACM SIGAI job fair grew to over 30 participating employers and hundreds of job seekers in 2016. We are happy to continue this program at AAAI-17. The AAAI/ACM SIGAI job fair is a place for students and professionals looking for internships or jobs to meet with representatives from companies and academia in an informal "meet-and-greet" atmosphere. In the beginning of the event, one representative from each organization has the opportunity to introduce the organization and its job opening(s) for about 1 minute. Afterward, all attendees have a chance to mingle.
If you are representing a company, research organization or university and would like to participate in the job fair, please send an email with your contact information to email@example.com by January 8. You are welcome to participate in the job fair even without prior reservation but we will be able to help you advertise your job openings better if we hear from you by the deadline. Participation is free. The organizers of the AAAI/ACM SIGAI Job Fair are Nathan Sturtevant (University of Denver, USA) and William Yeoh (New Mexico State University, USA).
For more information about the job fair, consult the supplementary web page.
AAAI / ACM SIGAI Job Market Electronic Bulletin Board
AAAI and ACM SIGAI are pleased to continue the electronic job bulletin board at AAAI-17. Companies with job opportunities, as well as job seekers, will provide ads to populate an ongoing kiosk display. Opportunities to meet with job seekers will be arranged dynamically or through employer-sponsored events.
AAAI will feature a number of tutorials that are very well suited for students who are new to a PhD program or new to AI research in general. The final list will appear here in December.
Breakfast with Champions: A Women's Mentoring Event
AAAI is holding the third annual women's mentoring event for students and junior women professionals to meet with senior women in artificial intelligence. Breakfast with Champions is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday morning, February 7, 2017. Previous events have been very popular and over-subscribed. If you are a female student or within five years of your most recent degree and interested in joining us, please apply by checking the box on the registration form (available in November). There is a $10 registration fee for attendees to help cover a portion of the event costs. If this fee would prevent you from attending, please contact the organizers directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many other activities are being planned specifically for student involvement. These include the following:
- AAAI/SIGAI Doctoral Consortium Call for Applications
- AAAI-17 Student Reception
- Student Abstract and Poster Program
- Lunch with an AAAI Fellow
- Student Roommate Pairing Service
- Student Social Activities

Additional information will be posted at the AAAI 2017 Student Activities Page as it becomes available. We look forward to seeing you and/or your students at AAAI-17!
