We Robot 2020 -- Funding opportunities for emergent researchers and researchers from the Global SouthNews | 24-02-2020 12:39
The University of Ottawa Centre for Law, Technology and Society will host We Robot 2020 from April 2nd to 4th.
To encourage a global and diverse conversation on robotics and AI law, ethics and policy, we are excited to announce two funding opportunities: the Microsoft Emerging We Robot Scholars, and the IDRC-We Robot Global Voices Fellows for scholars from the Global South!
Microsoft Emerging We Robot Scholars
Thanks to a generous contribution from Microsoft, funding is available to allow emergent researchers (graduate students or professors fewer than 5 years into their academic post) who have insufficient institutional financial support to attend We Robot 2020.
Please send a short email explaining your interest and your financial needs, and a CV to Dr. Martin-Bariteau at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IDRC-We Robot Global Voices Fellows
Thanks to a generous contribution from the Government of Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), funding is available to allow researchers from the Global South to attend We Robot 2020.
The IDRC-We Robot Global Voices Fellowships will cover travel costs to Ottawa, as well as accommodation and registration fees. Fellows will also be invited for a workshop at IDRC as part of its AI4D Initiative. We’re expecting to fund 8 fellows from the Global South. Subject to available funds, partial funding might be offered to additional applicants.
Please send a short email explaining your interest (indicating your country of origin), your financial needs, and a CV to Dr. Martin-Bariteau at email@example.com.
