o JSAI Travel Support for speakers from Asian countries

JSAI (the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence) will provide travel support (100,000 - 200,000 Japanese Yen each) for ten-twenty IJCAI-97 speakers from Asian countries. Selection will be made based upon the financial situations of applicants. Students have a higher priority.

Each application should follow the same instruction as the IJCAI-97 Traveling Awards. For information regarding the JSAI suport, please contact to

Prof. Mitsuru Ishizuka (University of Tokyo)

o IJCAI-97 Traveling Award

IJCAII is pleased to announce the continuation of its Travel Awards Program for students, junior scientists and scientists from Eastern Europe and other countries with unstable currency interested in attending the Fifteenth International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence to be held in Nagoya, Japan, August 23-29, 1997.

Separate travel award programs are available for students and junior researchers through IJCAII and other national societies. In addition, IJCAII will continue its efforts to provide travel support to those from countries with unstable currency who would otherwise be unable to attend. Due to limited availability of IJCAII Travel Award Program funds, it is highly recommended that applicants, especially students, approach their local AI Society first for possible support. For information regarding the IJCAI-97 Travel Award Program, please contact to next address.

o Student Volunteer Program

Students not requiring travel assistance should only apply for the Volunteer Program, which provides complimentary registration to full time students, including conference proceedings, in exchange for assisting IJCAI-97 organizers in Japan. This program does not provide travel award funds, and is designed for local students or students who have other sources for travel funds.
