Joint AAAI/ACM SIGAI Doctoral Dissertation Award

Limited competition (one nomination per university)

AAAI and ACM SIGAI are excited to announce that we have established the Joint AAAI/ACM SIGAI Doctoral Dissertation Award to recognize and encourage superior research and writing by doctoral candidates in artificial intelligence. The award will be presented annually at the AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence, and the winner will be invited to present a talk at the conference.

A nominated dissertation must have been successfully defended (but not necessarily finalized) between October 1 of the previous year through September 30 of the current year. [For the 2020 competition: October 1, 2019-September 30, 2020.] Nominations are welcome from any country, but only English language versions will be accepted. Only one nomination may be submitted per Ph.D.-granting institution, including large universities. The nominator must be an ACM SIGAI member and/or AAAI member.

Since UIC can nominate only one dissertation, the Graduate College is running a limited competition.
