AAAI-20 Undergraduate Consortium
The Undergraduate Consortium (AAAI-UC) hosted at the 2020 AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-20) will offer undergraduate students an opportunity to enrich their conference experience by (1) presenting and receiving critical feedback about their work in a professional, academic setting; (2) meeting prospective graduate advisors; (3) receiving mentoring about the advantages (and disadvantages) of pursuing graduate studies in AI as well as practical early career advice; (4) expanding their professional network to include both AI experts, current graduate students, and undergraduate peers; and (5) providing advice, tools, and resources for successfully applying to and attending graduate school in an AI-related research.
The inaugural AAAI-UC will be held on February 7, 2020, the first day of the AAAI-20 conference. We are excited to announce that we will be able to provide undergraduate participants of the AAAI-UC with limited travel scholarships to attend AAAI-20, including the AAAI-UC.
We will be updating this page with details regarding the program, registration process, and applying for travel funding. The AAAI-UC application process is expected to include a cover sheet/form requesting biographical and contact information, a 2-page research abstract / summary, a 1-page resume, and a short personal statement outlining what you expect to gain/contribute by attending. Part of the goal of this consortium is to help undergrad attendees get the most of their AAAI experience. Towards that end, students who are hoping to participate in the AAAI-UC are strongly encouraged to submit their work to one of the AAAI programs (e.g., paper, student abstract, workshop, etc.). All application/registration deadlines are expected to occur after the Nov. 10 AAAI notification date.
