  • A unique opportunity for the students to present their work and obtain feedback on it.
  • A chance for the students to get acquainted with their peers in other Israeli institutions, and faculty in their field.
  • An opportunity for the faculty and thesis supervisors to find out about each other's current research interests.
  • A meeting between Academia and Industry, who are invited to the event, a chance for the students to meet potential employers and a chance for the industry to recruit potential employees.
We solicit 15-25 minutes presentations by graduate students working on a thesis (Partial results may be submitted). The exact duration of the presentation will be decided upon after receiving the proposed presentations.

As always, the event will include awarding of the Velger prize for an outstanding graduate student work. The prize has been established jointly by IAAC and El-Op company in memorial of the late Dr. Marko Velger, a distinguished member of the Israeli control community. Students who wish to be considered for the prize should submit no later than April 3, 2016, in addition to the above, a letter of recommendation from their thesis supervisor. They may (but do not have to) submit any material (e.g. a paper) which they consider relevant to the case.
