SUMMER SCHOOL ON COMSOC

During the week of 17-21 July 2023, the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam will be hosting a Summer School on Computational Social Choice. This should be nice. Join us!

The school is specifically intended for individuals pursuing a PhD in or related to social choice (not only of the computational variety). But others—from different fields or at different career stages—are also very welcome. The international team of lecturers is composed of leading figures in the field. They will be covering axiomatic, algorithmic, and behavioural aspects of social choice, discussing both foundations and applications. Besides a rich set of lectures, the programme will include a poster session and a number of social activities.

Stay tuned for more information to be posted over the coming weeks and months ...

Coming from far away? In particular when travelling from outside of Europe, consider turning this into a round trip: EC-2023 will take place in London the week before, and COMSOC-2023 in Beersheba the week before that.

SCHEDULE

Detailed schedule to be announced in June

The scientific programme will start on Monday around 9am and conclude on Friday around 5pm. So you should arrive in Amsterdam by Sunday night and leave no earlier than Saturday morning.

POSTERS

Information on how to participate to be announced by mid February

The scientific programme will include a poster session, where interested participants will have the opportunity to present their own work. This could be published work or work in progress.

REGISTRATION

Registration to open by mid February

The registration fee of €100 covers access to all parts of the scientific and the social programme, including coffee breaks and the social dinner. You will need to organise your own accommodation, which in Amsterdam can be expensive. You might want to book something (you can still cancel) even before registering for the summer school.

The number of spots is limited. We hope to accept everyone interested but cannot guarantee that this will be possible.

Registration and grant application deadline:   31 March 2023
Notification of acceptance:   15 April 2023
Registration fee due:   30 April 2023

GRANTS

Application procedure to be announced by mid February

We expect to be able to support a small number of participants with travel grants. These grants are restricted to PhD students (and individuals who will start a PhD no later than October 2023) at institutions with limited travel funding.

LOCATION

The summer school will be held at Amsterdam Science Park, to the east of the city centre. Most activities will take place in lecture hall L1.01 at the brand new LAB42, the home of (part of) the ILLC. Science Park offers modern lecturing facilities, green surroundings, and plenty of affordable lunch options (many of them vegetarian or vegan). It's far enough from the city centre to avoid distraction but close enough to visit whenever you want to.

Arrival. Amsterdam is one of the best-connected cities in the world. Please consider travelling by train where that is reasonably possible. Doing so is fairly convenient from lots of places in Europe: Brussels (2h), Paris (3.5h), London (4h), Berlin (6.5h), Munich (7.5h), Zurich (8h), Prague (11h), Vienna (11h), Copenhagen (11.5h), and so forth.

Public transport. At the airport or train station, buy an 'anonymous OV-chipkaart' from a machine and put some cash on it (at least €20 if you want to use trains). With this card, individual trips are much cheaper than single-use tickets. Or try the new OVpay system. Remember to check in and out for every train/metro/tram/bus you use.

Bikes. Consider renting a bike while you are here. This is by far the fastest and most convenient way of getting around. There are bike rental places all over town. Expect to pay around €15 per day.

Where to stay? We do not have recommendations for specific hotels. Anything between the city centre and Science Park would be very convenient. But also look beyond that area. And don't worry: Amsterdam is a safe city.
