The EurAI Travel Award scheme provides funding for students and early career researchers wishing to attend the ECAI conference or ACAI summer school. These awards are intended to partially cover travel expenses and registration fees. The value of the award ranges from 250 EUR to 750 EUR, depending on the location of the conference / summer school and the distance to be travelled.
The purpose of the Travel Award is to support students and early career researchers who have limited or no access to other funding for supporting their travel. Applicants must be members of a EurAI member society. Recipients of the ECAI Travel Award must include an acknowledgement to EurAI in all presentations or posters presented at the conference or any of its satellite events (if applicable). The award can only be used to support your attendance at ECAI or ACAI. By accepting the award, you are confirming that you have participated in the conference / summer school, and that your total expenses (including travel, accommodation and registration fee) exceed the value of the award.
Applications for the Travel Award should be submitted as a single zip file, containing the following documents in PDF format:
In the case of a successful application, proof of participation in the event will need to be provided. Please note that as a result, the Travel Award will only be transferred after the conference or summer school has taken place.
The next eligible event for the Travel Award is ACAI 2021, but it is currently not yet clear whether ACAI 2021 can take place as a physical event. Applications for the travel award will be opened as soon as it becomes clear that this will indeed be possible.
In the likely case that the total amount requested exceeds the available budget, applications will be selected based on the following criteria:
