FIRST CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
2nd LOGIC MENTORING WORKSHOP
Sunday 18 June 2017
Colocated with LICS 2017
The 2nd Logic Mentoring Workshop (LMW) invites applications from
students (undergraduate, master's and PhD), in all areas of logic for
scholarships to attend the Logic in Computer Science (LICS) conference
this year. Attending a conference such as LICS can be a transformative
experience. It exposes participants to cutting-edge research and can
open up new research avenues and collaboration opportunities. However
many students do not get the opportunity to attend a conference such as
LICS, and its participation often underrepresents women and minorities.
For this reason, women and members of minority groups are especially
encouraged to apply. Scholarships will be generously funded by our
sponsors (see below) and covers registration to LMW and the main LICS
conference, and possibly travel and accommodation.
The LMW will focus on the technical and practical aspects of a career in
logic research, including talks and panel sessions from leaders in the
subject. LMW '17 builds on the success of the first edition which took
place last year, also colocated with LICS. Last year's programme can be
found here: <http://lics.rwth-aachen.de/lics16/lmw.html>.
Applications should be made via the online form:
Please note that a letter of recommendation is required and should be
sent directly by your referee to Valeria Vignudelli
<valeria.vignudelli at ens-lyon.fr>. Further details are on the form.
The deadline for applications is *31 March 2017*. Notification will be
made shortly thereafter.
