Call for Volunteers & Grants Program

Students are invited to participate in the IJCAI Students’ Programs. Volunteers will receive full free registration at the conference. Any full-time university student, at any level, may apply to participate, whether or not they are presenting a paper. However, priority will be given to those students who have accepted contribution to the IJCAI including main conference, workshop, tutorial, competition and so on.

This year, all those who are in need of financial support and were not accepted into the Volunteers’ Program will be considered for IJCAI-AIJ Accessibility Grant to receive free registration to applicable parts of the scientific program- there will be NO PAYMENTS to awardees this year!

If you are applying to those programs, please DO NOT register before you receive the final notification from Volunteer Chair and the Grants’ Chair! Processing fee shall apply!!!

Final Decisions will be communicated by December 20, 2020
