Student Scholarships

We are delighted to announce a student scholarship program. The purpose of this program is to provide financial support for students with accepted papers at AAMAS-10, to enable them to travel to the conference.

To be eligible you must:
  • be registered as a full-time student at a higher education institute (e.g. a University);
  • be explicitly listed as an author of a paper accepted for AAMAS-10 (full, extended abstract, or workshop)
Our emphasis is on helping students who are first authors of full papers accepted for the main conference. Though lower in priority, to the extent that funds allow, we also hope to potentially provide support for student authors of extended abstracts, or of workshop papers. We anticipate different levels of funding based on geographic location (distance to conference venue, underrepresented regions), level of participation, and so on. We particularly encourage student scholarship applications from underrepresented regions.

To apply, complete the Student Scholarship Application Form. You will need to provide your participation details for AAMAS-10 as well as a pdf with a (scanned) letter certifying that you are registered as a full time student. This letter should carry the letterhead of your institution, and must be signed by your supervisor/thesis advisor. Submit your application (the completed application form and the scanned letter) by email.

If you are an author of a paper (short or full) at AAMAS-10, please submit your student scholarship application by February 1, 2010 .

Depending on the remaining funds, we will issue a second call for the authors of workshop papers. We will contact all applicants to let them know the outcome as soon as possible.
