Antwerp, Belgium | April 6th, 2016
After the success of the first PROSECCO code-camp held in Coimbra, Portugal in 2015, we are pleased to announce that the next PROSECCO code-camp on Computational Creativity will take place in the city of Antwerp, Belgium in April 2016. The local organizers of the camp will be Lucas Nijs of the Sint Lucas School of Art and Walter Daelemans of the CLiPs Natural Language Processing group of the University of Antwerp.
As in the previous event, scholarships are available for students to participate in the camp. Flights and trains (within Europe), accommodation and some meals will be covered by the scholarships, which will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. All students will be expected to have reasonable coding abilities in a langauge such as Java or Python. Substantial data/knowledge resources will be provided to undertake the coding challenge of the camp.
For the 2016 event, our focus will be on creative story-telling. Participants will form groups and build autonomous software systems that generate original and interesting stories. Much of the camp will involve intense coding in groups, but brainstorming sessions and tutorials will also be scheduled, in addition to a lively social programme.
You can register your intention to attend, and apply for a scholarship to cover your travel and accommodation costs, using this form.
Please watch this space (and bookmark this page) for further information on the camp as it becomes available. If you have any questions regarding your eligibility for a scholarship, or would like to register an expression of interest in attending the camp, please contact Tony.Veale@UCD.ie
Note that as PROSECCO is a European coordination action, preference will be given to European students. However, partial scholarships (i.e. covering partial travel costs and full accommodation costs) will be given to non-EU applicants as the budget allows.
