Call for Applications
Thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation, we will provide a minimum of 12 scholarship awards to selected U.S.-based students attending the Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society (FLAIRS) conference in Miramar Beach FL, May 18-21, 2024; see www.FLAIRS‑37.info. The scholarships will include financial support of at least $2000 for registration, travel, and lodging.
Awardees must register for the conference and will have to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation. Awardees must attend the conference in person, participate in pre- and post-surveys, participate daily in conference sessions, and attend a specially organized event for awardees only.
