IJCAII is pleased to announce the continuation of its Travel Awards Program for students, junior scientists and scientists from Eastern Europe and other countries with unstable currency interested in attending IJCAI-99. ECCAI will also provide travel funds for young members of an ECCAI Member Society. The Conference Fee Waiving Program will help some of the participants from Eastern Europe and developing countries. Additionally, the Student Volunteer Program continues to provide limited support to those students willing to help make IJCAI-99 a success.
|IJCAII Travel Award Program|
Travel awards are available for students and junior researchers through IJCAII and other national societies. Due to limited availability of IJCAII Travel Award Program funds, it is highly recommended that applicants, especially students, approach their local AI Society first for possible support. For information regarding the IJCAI-99 Travel Award Program, please contact:
c/o Priscilla Rasmussen
75 Paterson Street, Suite 9
New Brunswick, NJ 08901, USA
The original and three copies of a letter of request should be submitted to Priscilla Rasmussen no later than May 1, 1999. This application should state:
A post-conference report and receipts totaling the award amount will be required after the conference in order to receive the award.
In the event that travel award applications exceed available funds, preference will be given to students who have an accepted technical paper, and then to students who are actively participating in the conference in some way or those having unstable currency problems.
|ECCAI Travel Award Program|
The European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI) has a small number of Travel Grants with a value of 400 Euros each, available for young members of an ECCAI member society. Priority will be given to authors of papers accepted for the technical program over papers for workshops. Recipients should play an active role in IJCAI-99 as a presenter, chair, panelist, etc. In exchange for support, a report for publication will be required. Deadline for applications is May 4, 1999.
For full details and the application procedure, see the ECCAI web site at http://www.eccai.org, or e-mail.
