Grants for Community-building Events

The 5th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC-2014) will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia from June 10 to June 13, 2014. 

The conference promises to be jam-packed with CC-related talks and activities, including art exhibitions and a lively social programme.

In addition, on the afternoon of June 9th, a tutorial will be held on building Computational Creativity (CC) systems. This tutorial will be sponsored by the PROSECCO project. Students from all disciplines are invited to attend and participate in the discussions.

Moreover, PROSECCO is offering 5 scholarship grants, of up to 1000 euros each, to defray the cost of attending the tutorial. Each grant also includes registration at the ICCC conference, allowing attendees to immerse themselves in CC for the whole week.

To apply for a grant to attend the conference and tutorial and related events, please contact the grant decision committee at (iccc2014scholarships@prosecco-network.eu) and provide the following information in your email application:

  • Full name and country of citizenship

  • Name and country of your current educational institution

  • Details on your academic qualifications to date

  • Name and email address and primary research area of your current supervisor

  • Details of your current educational/research programme (e.g. Msc, PhD) and your current working topic, emphasising where relevant its connection to Computational Creativity

  • If you are planning to give your research a CC-relevant spin, let us know how

  • A description of your interest and previous experience with Computational Creativity (e.g. have you submitted previously to ICCC, or attended the conference in earlier years?)

  • Anything else you may think is relevant to your application and which may distinguish you from other applicants

  • Estimated costs for your trip to Ljubljana

 Please note that scholarship grants are paid after the conference, with the presentation of all relevant receipts and travel documents. However, we expect the reimbursement process to be a swift one.

 

More generally, PROSECCO will organize a yearly educational event and a yearly contact forum, so watch this space! The annual educational event -- which will be open to a broad range of students with an engineering interest in building Computational Creativity systems or a theoretical interest in characterizing the abilities of such systems -- will be a code camp in year 2 (January 12-15, 2015), and a Summer or Autumn school in year 3 (2016). 

Student grants -- which are designed to partially defray the cost of attending PROSECCO educational events -- are available for all Summer/Autumn schools and the code camp. More details on applying for these grants can be found in the page for the specific event.
