ISP Policies

In addition to the School of Computing and Information and University policies, which apply to ISP students as well, there are several policies within the program itself:

  • When a new student arrives, the student is assigned space in office 5108 Sennott Square. As the student finds an advisor and starts working on projects, he/she usually moves to other labs designated for that faculty member.

  • The progress of ISP students is reviewed and mailed to the students each fall.

  • ISP students are eligible to apply for a limited amount of conference travel funds each year. To find out more, refer to the section on travel grants.

  • Every ISP student is expected to maintain a Web site listing their current contact information, publications, and current research. Students also are responsible for ensuring that the Web site is linked from the ISP Student Directory.

  • ISP students are highly encouraged to present at least once a year during the ISP AI Forum.

  • ISP students are required to attend all but two of the scheduled AI Forum talks per term and sign in so they get credit.  Failure to meet this requirement will affect application for The Provost Fellowship candidacy, School of Computing and Information program funding candidacy, Dietrich School program funding candidacy, summer GSA funding, ISP Travel Grants and similar funding.  In case of extenuating circumstances, the student should communicate the possible absence to the ISP director and administrator.

  • ISP students are required to complete the Research Integrity Module. "Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe generally accepted practices and ethical principles associated with authorship and publication, generation and use of data, mentoring, research misconduct, and other investigator responsibilities". Once completed, the last page must be printed and submitted to the ISP administrator.
