Call for submissions to the Student Session

All students are cordially invited to participate in the Student Session of EASSS'09!!

Within the context of EASSS'09, the Student Session is designed to encourage student interaction and feedback from the tutors. By providing the students with a conference-like setup, both in the presentation and in the review process, students have the opportunity to prepare their own submission, go through the selection process (peer review) and possibly present their work to themselves and their interests to their fellow students as well as internationally leading experts in the agent field, both from the theoretical and the practical sector. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the program committee and accepted paper submissions will be assigned a 15 minute slot for presentation. Typically a presentation will either detail the intended approach to a problem or ask a specific question, directed at the audience. In addition, selected submission authors will be given the opportunity to present their work in form of a poster that will be displayed in a special room throughout the EASSS'09. Moreover, all the submissions will be published in online proceedings.

As the goal is to provide the speakers with constructive feedback and a way to be introduced to the community, the competitive elements often found in conferences (best paper award, best presentation award) are intentionally omitted. The peer review will focus not on the magnitude of the presented material but on the clarity of the formulated material or whether or not the posed question is of relevance to a majority of students. Giving a good presentation is a difficult task, practising it is the benefit of this session. The extend to which the audience has understood the details should be the criterion by which the presentations are judged.
