ECCAI Conference Sponsorship
ECCAI sponsors invited talks at international conferences. Here are the guidelines for eligibility and duties of sponsored conferences.
1. Which conferences are eligible for sponsorship?Any international conference is eligible, provided that it is either a general AI conference, or a specialized conference whose main topic is clearly recognized as an AI topic. Those include, for instance (but the list is not exhaustive): planning, constraint satisfaction, knowledge representation and reasoning, multi-agent systems, uncertainty in AI, machine learning, natural language processing, robotics and vision, diagnosis, and others.
National or otherwise local conferences within Europe (e.g., German AI conference, Italian AI Conference, Benelux AI Conference, Scandinavian AI conference etc.) are not eligible.
National or regional conferences outside Europe (i.e., PRICAI, Australian AI Conference, Latin-American Conference etc.) are not eligible.
Note that AAAI is eligible (it is no longer an North-American AI Conference).
2. What is sponsorship for, and how much?Sponsorship is usually given for a invited talk. The invitee should belong to a European AI society member of ECCAI. Depending on the costs, ECCAI can pay for the travel and local costs of the speaker, or for only a part of them. The maximum amount is 1000, but there can be exceptions if the request is well-argumented.
3. What are the duties of the sponsored conference?The conference must properly acknowledge that the invited talk is an ECCAI talk. This must be acknowledged in the program on the website, on the printed program, and must be announced orally before the talk is given.
4. Can a conference apply several times?Yes, provided that it fulfilled the duties in the past. However, if several conferences apply and ECCAI cannot sponsor them all, priority will be given to those that have never been sponsored, or not been sponsored recently, by ECCAI.
