AI-2009 is the latest in the leading series of UK-based international
conferences on Artificial Intelligence run by the BCS Specialist Group
on AI. In 2007 we launched the Forum for AI Research Students to
support student members of the AI community, and repeated the event
in
2008. SGAI is again offering this event at AI-2009. This event offers
a full day of workshops and presentations and is FREE TO
STUDENTS.

A one day event, FREE OF CHARGE to students, offering PhD and
MRes/MPhil students in AI fields: *   Guidance on conducting research
and writing their thesis *   Feedback on research plans *   Advice on
undergoing the viva *   The chance to meet other research students

researchers and practitioners Deadline for applications: November

Overview
FAIRS'09 is intended to allow doctoral and MRes/MPhil students
working
in AI and related fields to present their research and receive
feedback from senior scholars in the field and for discussion with
other Forum attendees. It will be a stand-alone programme which
willtake place on December 14th, the day preceding the main AI-2009
conference workshops and tutorials.

Programme
The Forum will include:
*   Getting a PhD - Workshop on conducting research and developing
and
writing a
   thesis.
*   Student presentations and discussions

   research, and have an opportunity to discuss this with senior
   academics and research student peers

comprising recent
   PhD graduates, AI academics, industrial representative and PhD
   recruiters. Focus on:
