SIGAI Career Network Conference (CNC)

October 19-20, 2016 | Boston, MA, USA |



* Abstract Submission: July 22th, 2016 *


The second ACM SIGAI Career Network Conference is an opportunity for early career researchers, particularly students and postdocs who will be on the job market, to present their research to each other and to potential employers as well as other senior researchers who want to learn about cutting-edge AI research. In addition, we will have a panel of employers as well as a group of mentors who will give specific advice to those on the job market.

Submission is very lightweight: a one-page abstract / research statement is the main requirement. SIGAI will be providing travel support for selected applicants. We think this is going to be a great event, and we'd love to get some more diversity of AI areas represented in the program.

While the CNC is a unique opportunity for early-career researchers, participation is open to anyone interested in AI research. Come hear about some of the most exciting recent research, and to network with up-and-coming researchers and members of research organizations.
