SGAI is pleased to announce that a limited number of bursaries are available to allow full-time research students to attend AI-2004. The Specialist Group is conscious of the financial constraints placed on many research students and is therefore delighted to be able to offer this practical financial assistance.
Applications are now invited for bursaries to attend the main two day conference at AI-2004 (i.e. Tuesday December 14th-Wednesday December 15th 2004).
Bona-fide full-time research students are invited to apply by email to Ms. Rosemary Gilligan (firstname.lastname@example.org). The closing date of Friday 19th November 2004 will be strictly applied. Your application must include the following information:
- your name and email address;
- your research department's postal address;
- the name and address (if different from above) of your project supervisor;
- the title of your research project;
- a brief account (no more than 200 words) of why you wish to attend the conference and why you would find the bursary helpful.
The final item will be used by the conference committee to help them allocate funds in the event that the bursaries are over-subscribed.
The guidelines for the bursary scheme are as follows:
(a) The bursary scheme will be open only to bona-fide full-time research students who are not presenting papers or posters at the conference.
(b) The Bursary will cover the registration fee for Days 2-3 of AI-2004, December 14th-15th (worth £150 for students). This includes the proceedings, lunch and refreshments daily, an invitation to the Welcome Reception on December 13th, but NOT the Gala Dinner on December 14th (tickets for the Dinner can be purchased separately).
Please note that the bursary does NOT cover attendance at the tutorial/workshop day (December 13th) or overnight accommodation.
(c) It is intended that up to 10 bursaries will be awarded each year.
