The European Agent Systems Summer School aims to offer a valuable forum for knowledge exchange between various research groups in its field for the benefit of students and researchers at both beginner and advanced level. The success of the summer school series is essential not only for the mutual benefit of research groups, but also in forming future generations of researchers to maintain the excellence of Agents research and development in Europe.
EASSS attracts about 100 students each year. The school provides a wide range of state-of-the-art courses given by the most prominent researchers in the area. A typical course has 4 hours in total and they are broad enough to provide a general introduction to the chosen topic, whilst also covering the most important contributions in depth. Courses are expected to take a wide perspective of the research being done by various groups active in research on the specific topic of the course.
Within this context, the Student Session is designed to encourage student interaction and feedback from the tutors. By providing the students with a conference-like setup, both in the presentation and in the review process, students have the opportunity to prepare their own submission, go through the selection process (peer review) and possibly present their work to themselves and their interests to their fellow students as well as internationally leading experts in the agent field, both from the theoretical and the practical sector.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted paper submissions will be assigned a 20 minute slot for presentation. Typically a presentation will either detail the intended approach to a problem or ask a specific question, directed at the audience. In addition, selected submission authors will be given the opportunity to present their work in form of a poster that will be displayed at EASSS'10. Moreover, all accepted submissions will be published in online proceedings.
As the goal is to provide the speakers with constructive feedback and a way to be introduced to the community, the competitive elements often found in conferences (best paper award, best presentation award) are intentionally omitted. The peer review will focus not on the magnitude of the presented material but on the clarity of the formulated material or whether or not the posed question is of relevance to a majority of students.
Giving a good presentation is a difficult task, practising it is the benefit of this session. The extend to which the audience has understood the details should be the criterion by which the presentations are judged.
EASSS’10 is pleased to offer few registration grants (270 €) to PhD and master students. Made available by our sponsors, each grant is a source for enabling a student to attend the summer school by contributing towards the whole costs of registration (accommodation and travel are not paid and must be paid by the student). Grants are limited and offered on a discretionary basis.For more details and application procedures, see Grant request.
