Information to provide

A typical edition of the summer school is one week long and is usually held between July and September (exceptions possible). Previous editions of the school attracted between 30-60 students. The program consists of 10-15 tutorials (you should form a scientific committee to decide on the scientific program). Lunch and coffee breaks should be provided by the local organizers. The aim is to keep registration, travel and accommodation costs low. A social event is usually also part of the summer school.

Please provide a concise PDF document addressing the above points, in particular please answer the following questions:

  • What would be possible dates for the summer school?
  • How do you plan to advertise the summer school?
  • A tentative registration fee, estimate of costs and break-even of the event.
  • Why would you/your group be a good host for the summer school?
  • Will your host institution support the school, e.g. by providing free/cheap lecture rooms?
  • What are the benefits of the location (costs, reachability, attractiveness for students, social event,...)?

Potential surplus will be split in a ratio of 25% to 75% between the local organisers and EURAMAS. Symmetrically, EURAMAS will also cover up to 75% of potential losses.

EURAMAS will provide some travel grants to cover part of tutors’ and students’ expenses, as see fit by the local organisers.

The summer schools offer a rich program of both introductory and advanced courses on a broad range of topics in the area of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. The courses are aimed at advanced Masters students, PhD students, and other early stage researchers, and will be taught by leading researchers in the field.

EASSS is organized under the auspices of EURAMAS, the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems
