Matt, Nicole and Ruta are organizing an AGT mentoring workshop (AMW) at EC this year on Monday, June 18 (on the same day as tutorials). Here is the announcement:

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.
