Some funding will be available to cover in part travel costs. IJCAI will offer additional travel grants to student authors of accepted papers. Details will be available later.

For students who are interested in combining their travel to IJCAI with a longer research visit we have secured spaces from hosts in various research labs in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Australian NICTA labs. We have also secured some spaces for students from Asia who want to do a research visit in Switzerland and in Ireland. Please contact us if interested for details. Note that there is no funding for these visits.
