The Woody Bledsoe Student Travel Award was created to honor the memory of Woody Bledsoe, for his contributions to mathematics, artificial intelligence, and automated theorem proving, and for his dedication to students. The award is intended to enable selected students to attend the International Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE) or the International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning (IJCAR), whichever is scheduled for the year, by covering part of their expenses.

The winners of the CADE-25 Woody Bledsoe Student Award will be partially reimbursed (e.g., between Euro 200 and Euro 750) for their conference registration, transportation, and accommodation expenses. Preference will be given to students who will play an active role in the conference (including satellite workshops, competitions, tutorials and poster events) and do not have alternative funding. However, also students in other situations are very much encouraged to apply.

A nomination consists of a recommendation letter of up to 300 words from the student’s advisor. Nominations for CADE-25 should be sent by e-mail to the chairs and conference organizers at [email protected].

Nominations must arrive no later than 21 June 2015. The winners will be notified by 28 June 2015.

The awards will be presented at CADE-25; in case a winner does not attend, the chairs may transfer the award to another nominee or give no award.
