The Twenty-Ninth Conference on Artificial Intelligence
January 25–29, 2015, Austin, Texas USA

Call for Participation
Application Deadline: October 1, 2014

We invite Ph.D. student applications for the AAAI-15 Robotics
Fellowships. The fellowships aim to attract Ph.D. students from
robotics labs that do not typically publish at artificial intelligence
(AI) venues but would like to attend AAAI-15 and learn about AI
techniques of relevance to robotics. The ideal candidates for the
fellowships are Ph.D. students who are working on dissertation topics
for which knowledge of artificial intelligence techniques is helpful
but who have not yet had a chance to attend top AI conferences.

The fellowships will cover up to $1,000 of the students' expenses
(plus free conference registration) to attend AAAI-15 in Austin, Texas
from January 25–29, 2015 (www.aaai.org/aaai15). The fellowships will
form part of several robotics-related activities at AAAI-15, including
a Robotics Exhibition, an AI Robotics Early Career Spotlight talk, and
a celebration of the Shakey project. The students will give short
talks in a dedicated session about their dissertation topics and be
provided with a variety of opportunities to interact with artificial
intelligence students and senior researchers throughout the

To apply, please send a single PDF to Brad Knox (bradknox at mit.edu) by
October 1, 2014, which should include:

A two-page summary of your dissertation topic, with a short
explanation of the relevance of AI techniques;
A half-page statement about what you hope to get out of attending AAAI-15;
Your CV, including a listing of all conferences attended so far; and
A letter of support from your dissertation supervisor.
Please feel free to contact the Robotics cochairs if you have any questions.
