Cardona-Rivera Selected to Attend EAAI 2017

Rogelio Cardona-Rivera, a PhD candidate in the NC State Department of Computer Science, has been selected to receive an EAAI New and Future AI Educator Program Travel Scholarship valued at over $1,000.  He will receive travel support to attend the 7th Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI-17) to be held February 4-9 in San Francisco, CA.  This symposium is co-located with 31st Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-17) Conference on Artificial Intelligence.  Cardona-Rivera received one half-price AAAI student early registration, and a $1,000 award that can be used toward travel, lodging, and participation in EAAI-17.
The EAAI New and Future AI Educator Program for 2017 is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the AI Journal. The New and Future AI Educator Program provides partial travel support for new educators (early career lecturers, assistant professors, and other university or secondary school faculty) and future educators (full-time PhD candidates or postdocs at colleges and universities who intend a career in academia) to attend EAAI-17, co-located with AAAI-17. EAAI-17 provides a venue for researchers and educators to discuss pedagogical issues and share resources related to teaching and using AI in education across a variety of curricular levels (K-12 through postgraduate training), with an emphasis on undergraduate and graduate teaching and learning.

Awardees are expected to participate actively in EAAI-17, and should have an interest in AI pedagogy, adopting new materials and resources for teaching AI, applications of AI to education, or becoming involved with the AI Education community. It is not necessary to have a paper accepted to EAAI-17 or be a past participant in order to apply; the New and Future AI Educator Program is intended to include both new and current members of the EAAI community.

Cardona-Rivera is co-advised by Drs. David Roberts and R. Michael Young.
