2012 AAAI/SIGAI Doctoral Consortium
Toronto, ON, Canada, 22/07/2012–23/07/2012

AAAI and SIGAI annually co-organize the AAAI/ SIGAI Doctoral Consortium. The Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides an opportunity for a group of Ph.D. students to discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with a panel of established researchers in artificial intelligence. SIGAI provides travel funding to support students from institutions outside the U.S., while the NSF provides funding for U.S. students. This year, SIGAI supported four international students to attend and present at the 17th AAAI/SIGAI Doctoral Consortium. These students provided testimonials reporting on their experiences at the DC.
The Doctoral Consortium will be held as a workshop on July 22–23, 2012, immediately before the start of the main AAAI conference. Student participants in the Doctoral Consortium will receive complimentary conference registration and a fixed allowance for travel/housing. Students will be expected to attend both days of the workshop in Toronto.
