Now in its ninth year, the AAAI Special Awards program at the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) consists of up to five (5) awards that recognize outstanding achievement in the areas of intelligent computation and robotics. Finalists in other areas with significant computer science components are also eligible. The student authors of each award-winning project share $1,000, and each student receives a certificate and other momentos. The winners and their schools also receive a complimentary one-year membership in the AAAI, including a subscription to AI Magazine.
This year, the ISEF was held May 13-19, 2007 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The 2007 winners include:

Founded in 1979, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (formerly the American Association for Artificial Intelligence) (www.aaai.org) is a nonprofit scientific membership society devoted to advancing the science and practice of AI. Its mission is to: (1) advance the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying intelligent thought and behavior, (2) facilitate their embodiment in machines, (3) serve as an information resource for research planners and the general public concerning trends in AI, and (4) offer training for the current and coming generations of AI researchers and practitioners. The Association has sponsored the annual AAAI/IAAI conferences, highly regarded in the AI field, since 1980 and 1989 respectively.
