Grants and Prizes

AISC Student Travel Grants 

In 2023 three AISC Student Travel Grants (up to 250 Euros each) were established to support attendance at the Society’s conference for AISC student members. Undergraduate and graduate students can apply for travel support to attend the conference. Any student who is the presenter of a paper accepted at the conference is eligible. Awardees will be selected on the basis of submission quality as emerged from the reviewers’ scores (in case of equal judgment, the younger candidate will have precedence). After paper acceptance and decisions have been made, selected authors will be contacted by the AISC Conference Awards Chairs. Student authors who want to be considered for the grant as part of the submission process can send an email to: and  

Vittorio Girotto Prize, Best Paper AISC 

From all abstracts accepted for the conference, the best works are eligible for the Best Paper AISC prize, established in memory of Vittorio Girotto. Authors of selected contributions will receive an invitation to submit an extended version of their works to the journal Sistemi Intelligenti. The Editorial Board of Sistemi Intelligenti will determine the winning paper, which will be published with special mention on the journal. Additionally, the authors will receive a 300 euros book voucher from the publisher of the journal, Il Mulino. Other finalist papers will be mentioned on the journal, and it is possible they will be published there as well, if deemed of adequate scientific value by the Editorial Board. 

Maria Miceli Prize 

From the abstracts accepted for the conference, the best works on topics involving the psychology of emotions, social interaction, anticipation, and values are eligible for the Marica De Vincenzi Foundation's Maria Miceli Prize. The prize consists of a €1,000 award, as well as the publication of the winning work in the journal "Sistemi Intelligenti”. The prize is open to any work presented at AISC or AIP conferences that addresses the themes of Maria Miceli's research, for whom the prize is named. The AISC executive board and the conference organizing committee will select the AISC nominees, who must then submit full papers, following deadlines and formats that will be published on the AISC website.
