***********************************************

AI-2010 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 and 2009. SGAI is again offering this event at AI-2010.
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:
o	Guidance on conducting research and writing their thesis
o	Advice on undergoing the viva
o	Advice and discussion on careers after a PhD
o	The chance to meet other research students and develop networks
o	An opportunity to discuss their work with senior researchers and
practitioners
This year we will also be holding the elections for a new student
representative to the SGAI committee.

Deadline for applications: November 29th 2010

Overview
FAIRS'10 is intended to allow PhD and MRes/MPhil students working on
AI related projects to discuss their research and issues around doing
a PhD with senior scholars in the field and with other Forum
attendees. The forum is aimed at those who have either completed a
Master's degree in an AI field and who are interested in progressing
to a PhD, or are current doctoral or research Masters students.
Students will be expected to contribute to small workshop discussions
on issues related to the conduct of the PhD. It will be a stand-alone
programme which willtake place on December 13th, the day preceding
the main AI-2010 conference workshops and tutorials.

Programme
The Forum will include:
o	Getting a PhD - Workshop on conducting research and developing and
writing a thesis.
o	Student discussion groups
o	 Parallel streams, for students at different stages of the PhD.
Discussion of issues and problems experienced by PhD students. All
encouraged to share and get involved!
o	Panel sessions - Question and answer sessions with a panel
comprising recent PhD graduates, AI academics, industrial
representative and PhD employers. Focus on:
o	doing a PhD
o	careers and employment
o	How To Survive your Viva! - A lighthearted presentation on how to
(and how not to) prepare for and perform at a Viva.
New this year - hustings and voting for the student representative to
the SGAI committee.
