[DMANET] AGT Mentoring Workshop @ EC'18

Hi all,

Matt, Nicole and I are organizing AGT mentoring workshop
<> (AMW) at EC this
year on Monday, June 18 (on the same day as tutorials). The primary goal of
the workshop is to initiate the early stage researchers (students) into the
field of AGT from both technical and mentoring perspective. We have funds
to cover partial/full expenses, and we are soliciting applications for the
same. Please help us spread the word by forwarding the following
announcement to the relevant groups/mailing-lists within your institution,
or any other relevant venue.

This year AGT Mentoring Workshop
<> (AMW) is taking
place with EC'18 on Monday, June 18, 2018. The primary goal of the workshop
is to provide early-stage researchers, students to be specific, the
background, both from a technical and mentoring perspective, to start a
successful research career in Algorithmic Game Theory.

The workshop will include:
* technical talks covering basics of topics prominent in the EC'18 program.
* Lunch with senior researchers
* mentoring talks + panels on topics like publication venues, internships,
academic jobs, etc.

We have limited funding to support full/partial expenses to attend the
workshop as well as EC'18. Interested students can apply here
<>. The application
deadline is April 27th. We will accept applications past this date, but
only applications received on time are guaranteed full consideration.

Please submit the form if you are interested in attending the workshop,
regardless if you need funding or not. This will help us get a clear
head-count for organizational purposes.

For funding, preference may be given to students early in their carrier who
may find it difficult to arrange for funds. We especially encourage
applications from women and other underrepresented groups.

Best Regards,
-Matt, Nicole, and Ruta (AMW organizers)

We greatly appreciate your help. Thanks so much.

Best Regards.
