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