ICWSM-11 Student Grant Program

ICWSM and AAAI are pleased to announce the availability of a small fund to help support student travel to ICWSM-11 in Barcelona, Spain. ICWSM-11 student grants provide modest travel support for students who are full-time undergraduate or graduate students at colleges and universities; are members of AAAI; have an accepted paper to the conference program or are participating in another way (workshops, demos); and submit scholarship applications to AAAI by May 13, 2011. In the event that scholarship 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

As part of the requirements for accepting a grant, students may be asked to assist ICWSM organizers onsite in Barcelona for a few hours, July 16 - 21. A limited number of complimentary technical program registrations will be available for students who are asked to volunteer during the conference.

To apply for the ICWSM-11 Student Grant Program, please complete the application and return it to AAAI no later than May 13, 2011. Submit form by:
