Applicants to the competition must be graduate or senior undergraduate students who present their own research/thesis work on Computational Intelligence (for a complete description see the topics mentioned in the TUTORIALS section). Posters to be presented will be selected based on an extended abstract, written in English. The student must be the first author and must present the poster orally to the jury. The First Prize will be a certificate and US$200. As Second and Third Prizes the respective winners will also receive a certificate. Poster Guidelines The following information should aid you in planning for your Poster Presentation during the EVIC All illustrations and lettering should be prepared beforehand. The poster display is not to be solely the extended abstract pinned to the poster board. 2. The title of the presentation in full and the names of all authors should appear at the top of the display. Lettering for this information should be no less than 48 points for the title and slightly smaller for the authors' names. The subheading should not be less than 20 points. 3. Suggested size of your poster is A0, portrait format: 840 mm/33 wide by 1188/47 high, the maximum size of the board is 950 mm/37 wide by 1200/47 high. Note: A color poster size A0 (84cm x 118cm) in bond paper costs CHILE $ IVA at Maxhuber (Phone: , Santiago; web: A CD with the poster in Freehand or equivalent should be provided. Deadline for Extended Abstracts (Poster Competition): October 15, 2005 Abstracts should be written in English, limited to 3 pages (US letter size). Abstracts must include the following sections: introduction, methods, results, discussion and conclusion. Affiliation should include the name of the student participating in the competition, and the name of the co-authors. Submit a PDF file to Decision Notification: November 4, 2005 Posters will be selected based on the quality of the extended abstract. The decision notification will be send by electronic mail.
5 Poster Competition: December 15, 2005 Posters should be posted from 14:00 to 20:00 pm on Tuesday 15, December. A committee of 3 experts will evaluate the posters and assign the first, second and third places. The prizes will be delivered during the cocktail party on Tuesday 15. STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society offers 4 travel grants of US$500 each to help IEEE student members not residing in Chile to attend the Summer School. The money can be used for travel and local expenses only. The requirements to apply for a travel grant are: Registration as IEEE Student Member belonging to Region 9, Latin-America and as a member of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (a student could apply at the same time for IEEE and CIS membership, and to the poster competition). Certificate as graduate student at Master or Doctor Course, or senior undergraduate doing thesis work. Letter of recommendation from the student s advisor or equivalent CurriculumVitae including publications (limited to 3-4 pages) Abstract of three pages about your own research or thesis work in English (same as for the poster competition). Optional: Participation in the student poster competition will be taken into account positively. Note 1: The IEEE CIS is working on a Web-based grant application system. The students applying for a grant from IEEE CIS must use this system. The application system will be open from September Note 2: The IEEE CIS will emit a US$500 check and send it to the selected students 1 month after the Summer School. The student must actually attend the Summer School in order to receive the check. Note 3: In some cases the travel grant amount could not be sufficient to cover the total travel expenses. After being selected as a travel grant recipient, we recommend the students to apply for local help of their own university or IEEE section. Deadline for Application to Travel Grant: October 15, 2005 Decision Notification: November 4, 2005 Note: The deadlines cannot be extended because the final decision about the travel grants will be taken in the U.S. by the IEEE CIS.
