EASSS 2011

13th European Agent Systems Summer School

Girona, Catalonia (Spain)
July 11-15 2011

Grant request

Thanks to several institutions and foundations (IFAAMAS, EURAMAS, CNRS and SIKS) we can offer several grants to students to cover some of the expenses to attend EASSS 2011.

We will try to award grants to cover all the expenses (registration fee, accommodation in the university halls and travel costs), although in some cases we may decide to only partially fund the costs, with the aim of helping more students cover their expenses.

The eligibility for IFAAMAS, EURAMAS and CNRS grants is described below. Note that in some cases a student may be eligible under both programs. In such a case it is possible to apply for both grants, but obviously only one would be awarded.

IFAAMAS grants

IFAAMAS offers grants to students coming from countries that are under-represented in agent-related research (note: the country to consider is that of the student's institution, not his/her nationality). The list of considered countries is the following:

Albania Algeria Andorra Bahrain Belarus Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Czech Republic Egypt Estonia
Iceland Iran Iraq Jordan Kosovo Kuwait
Latvia Lebanon Libya Liechtenstein Lithuania Macedonia
Malta Moldova Monaco Montenegro Morocco Oman
Palestine Poland Qatar Romania Russia San Marino
Saudi Arabia Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Sudan Syria
Tunisia Turkey UAE Ukraine The Vatican Yemen

If your institution's country is not listed here and you think it should be, contact us at and we will study the case.

EURAMAS grants

The grants offered by EURAMAS are open to any student coming from an European institution. For any query about these grants, contact .


The GDRI (Groupement de Recherche International) on Algorithmic Decision Theory, thanks to CNRS funds, is supporting students (mainly from French institutions) to attend EASSS. The grants are available pending the effective release of the funds in due time.

SIKS grants

SIKS, the Dutch National Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems, will cover the registration fee for a limited number of its PhD students. To apply, please contact the SIKS Office at .

How to apply

In order to apply for a grant it is necessary to submit the following:

  • Grant request form.
  • Proof of student status.
  • Brief description of the student's research topic and the importance of attending EASSS.
  • Letter by the supervisor stating why the grant is needed to enable the student to attend EASSS.
  • Expected travel costs.

All this should be sent to mentioning "[EASSS 2011] Grant Request" in the subject line, preferably as a compressed file of PDF documents.

Priority will be given to those students which we think they need the grants the most, and also to those actively participating in the Student Session.
