Deadline for application is 31/1/2019.

2. Several studentships funded by the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI), a collaboration between the University of York and Queen Mary.


these studentships are available for students wishing to pursue a PhD on IGGI themes, which include, for instance, gamification and the use of games-with-a-purpose for NLP, or interaction in games. Please contact Massimo Poesio (m.poesio at qmul.ac.uk<https://mailman.uib.no/listinfo/corpora>) for further information on these topics, or the other faculty listed on the IGGI pages for information on other themes.
