student volunteer and scholarship opportunities for ICML 2013!
- The 30th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML 2013) seeks student volunteers to help run this year's meeting in Atlanta, USA, from June 16 to June 21, 2013. In addition, we will provide a limited number of scholarships for exceptionally promising students.
Student volunteers and scholarship recipients will receive free registration to the meeting.
Being a student volunteer is an excellent opportunity to meet with your peers at a top-class international machine learning meeting. We seek keen, friendly volunteers, willing to do whatever is required to make the meeting a success. Tasks may include preparing registration packets, checking in attendees, or assisting with the sessions. Volunteers will be provided with details of their duties once the conference schedule is determined. The expected time commitment is roughly ten hours.
A student does NOT need to have an accepted paper at the conference in
order to participate in this program.
The goals of scholarship program are to integrate students in their research sub-community and to give them a forum to talk to leading researchers in the field about their Ph.D. research. Students participating in the program will be provided scholarships to subsidize travel, conference registration, and housing expenses for
ICML 2013. Note that all students are eligible for this program. A student does NOT need to have an accepted paper at the conference in order to participate in this program. In fact, one of scholarship program's explicit goals is to broaden student participation in the ICML research community. To help students be integrated into the conference, each sponsored student will have a poster on their research. Each paper presented during the daytime technical program will also be presented at a poster session. Students presenting papers at the conference will naturally present posters as part of the normal conference schedule. Students who do not have a paper at the main conference will have their posters integrated into the poster sessions. The poster format encourages the student participants to begin building a rapport with established researchers.
There is a single application for both programs. Note that a letter from your thesis advisor is required for the scholarship program.
