The decisions on awarding Auto-UI Global Fellowships are made in a curated form. This entails that a committee will select and announce the winners. However, no further correspondence on why specific candidates were or were not chosen will not be provided.
In our decision we balance multiple factors including but not limited to a diversity of geographic location, gender, research topics and methodological approach. Therefore, decisions also depend on the pool of candidates and limit our ability to reply to individuals.
The selection committee will be formed by members from this year’s general chairs, technical program chairs, diversity and inclusion committee and steering committee. Specifically:
Dr. Chris Janssen, Utrecht University (chair of committee)
Dr. Shan Bao, University of Michigan-Dearborn
Dr. Linda Boyle, University of Washington
Dr. Lewis Chuang, LMU Munich
Dr. Stella Donker, Utrecht University
Dr. Myounghoon "Philart" Jeon, Virginia Tech
Dr. Wendy Ju, Cornell Tech
Dr. Andrew Kun, University of New Hampshire
Dr. Ronald Schroeter, Queensland University of Technology
Help us to create opportunities for tomorrow’s leaders! We would like to provide even more students with the opportunity to take part in this fellowship. If you are part of a company or community that would like to contribute funding, please get in touch with Dr. Chris Janssen, via email@example.com.
For example: Student A is born in China, but currently pursues a PhD degree in the United States. She is not eligible for the global fellowship, as the country where she is enrolled for studies is not part of a targeted continent. Student B is born in Japan, but currently pursues a PhD degree in India. She is eligible for the global fellowship, as India is part of one of the targeted continents (Asia).
