Announcement to Provide Students with
the Grant from the AgentLink coordination
=========================================

The 2005 IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT International Conference organization
committee is happy to announce that, thanks to a grant provided by the
European AgentLink Co-ordination Action for Agent Based Computing, we
will be able to support some students who will attend the WI-IAT 2005
International conference.

This grant will be offered to one, two or three selected students who
meet the following condtions:

- the student must be a citizen of one of the new member countries of
  the European Union (Chypre, Estonie, Hongrie, Lettonie, Lituanie,
  Malte, Pologne, Republique tcheque, Slovenie, Slovaquie)

- the student must be registered as a regular research student
  (PdD student) in a laboratory and/or university of one of
  the new member countries of the European Union (Chypre, Estonie, Hongrie,
  Lettonie, Lituanie, Malte, Pologne, Republique tcheque, Slovenie,
Slovaquie)

- the student has a paper accepted as a regular paper in the IAT track of
the
  IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT 2005 International Conference,

- the student has already paid the registration fee,

- the student advisor writes a recommendation letter.

Depending on the number of supported students, the grant will range from
250 EUR to 375 EUR.

Please send your submission to Pierre Morizet-Mahoudeaux
(pmorizet at hds.utc.fr)
