AAAI- 19 Student Scholar
and Volunteer Program
AAAI is pleased to announce the con-
tinuation of its Student Scholarship
Program for 2019, which is cospon-
sored by AAAI and the AI Journal. The
Student Scholar Program provides par-
tial travel support for students who are
full-time undergraduate or graduate
students at colleges and universities;
are members of AAAI; submit papers to
the conference program or letters of
recommendation from their faculty
advisor; and submit scholarship appli-
cations to AAAI by November 15, 2018.
In addition, repeat scholarship
applicants must have fulfilled the volunteer and reporting requirements for
previous awards. In the event that
scholarship applications exceed available funds, preference will be given to
students who have an accepted technical paper, and then to students who are
actively participating in the conference
in some way. However, all eligible students are encouraged to apply.
The Student Volunteer Program is an
essential part of the conference and
student participation is a valuable contribution. Volunteers will support
AAAI organizers in Honolulu. In 2019,
a limited number of complimentary
technical program registrations will be
available for students who volunteer
during the conference. Preference will
be given to participating students for
the volunteer positions. Local students
or students not requiring travel assistance can apply for the Volunteer Program if openings are available. AAAI
membership is required for eligibility.
The deadline for volunteer applications is November 15, 2018.
For further information about the
Scholarship Program or the Volunteer
Program, please contact AAAI at schol-
email@example.com. The application is
available at aaaiforms.wufoo.com/

HCOMP- 19 to Be Held at Skamania Lodge
in Stevenson, Washington, USA
Please join us for the Seventh AAAI Conference on Human
Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2019), to be held
October 28–30 at the Skamania Lodge, located in the Columbia
River Gorge National Scenic Area in the town of Stevenson,
Washington, 45 minutes from Portland, Oregon. The resort
offers a distinctly Pacific Northwestern experience, featuring a
three-story stone fireplace and sweeping river views.
HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest
research findings on crowdsourcing and human computation.
While artificial intelligence (AI) and human-computer interaction (HCI) represent traditional mainstays of the conference,
HCOMP believes strongly in inviting, fostering, and promoting
broad, interdisciplinary research. This field is particularly
unique in the diversity of disciplines it draws upon, and contributes to, ranging from human-centered qualitative studies
and HCI design, to computer science and artificial intelligence,
economics and the social sciences, all the way to digital humanities, policy, and ethics. We promote the exchange of advances
in human computation and crowdsourcing not only among
researchers, but also engineers and practitioners, to encourage
dialogue across disciplines and communities of practice.
Please visit www.humancomputation.com/2019 for more
details as they become available.
