CRA-W/CDC Broadening Participation in AI
We proudly announce the CRA-W/CDC Broadening Participation in AI
program to be held in conjunction with AAAI-14.
The main goal of this program is to increase participation of women
and members of other underrepresented groups in Artificial Intelligence by
providing community building and networking sessions as well as
career mentoring advice.
Participants will have ample opportunities to interact with established
researchers, to network with other participants, and to receive
mentoring about career planning and career options.
The program will include a series of planned sessions scheduled over the
- afternoon session on Monday July 28 before the
start of the main conference.
When: from 2:00pm to 5:30pm
Where: in room 204A on the Second Level of the Convention Centre
- lunch with the women atttending the conference (or lunch with other
men from underrepresented groups) on Tuesday July 29. There is a charge
of $5.00 for the lunch. The charge does not cover the cost of the lunch,
but it is to minimize the number of no shows. Students admitted to the
program with funding will be able to claim $5.00 on their expenses.
Any woman attending the conference is welcome to join the lunch.
When: from 11:50am to 1:00pm
Where: in room 206A/B on the Second Level of the Convention Centre
- breakfast on Thursday July 31
When: from 7:15am to 8:30am
Where: in room 205A on the Second Level of the Convention Centre
CRA-W/CDC is providing some funding for travel awards.
Eligibility: travel funding is available for students who
are US citizens or permanent residents.
Students who are funded will have to attend the conference,
the doctoral mentoring consortium, and the three working/meal sessions
Priority will be given to women, other members of underrepresented groups
(Hispanics, African American, and Native American), and students who
do not have access to mentoring networks at their home institutions.
Funding: awards will provide $1,000-$1,500 for conference
registration, travel and lodging expenses. The awards will be
given in form of reimbursement after the conference.
Expected number of awards: 12-15.
Application for attendance and travel awards
An application is required to attend the program and to be considered
for a travel award. We expect most of the students accepted will
be graduate students, but undergraduates can also apply.
A form will be emailed to your research advisor asking them to provide some
supplementary information about you. The form
will contain multiple-choice questions about your current student status,
and why your advisor would like you to participate.
Application deadline: CLOSED
