%%    In Association with MIT    %%

The Masdar Institute (http://www.masdar.ac.ae) is a private,
not-for-profit, independent, research-driven institute developed with
the support and cooperation of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT). The Institute offers Masters and PhD programs in
science and engineering disciplines, with a focus on advanced energy
and sustainable technologies. Its faculty is of the highest quality
and the intent is to have the structure of its top administration
similar to MIT's.

The Institute is located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.  Ph.D.
students will have the chance to spend up to 1 year at MIT in
Cambridge, MA, and will have a joint thesis committee consisting of
Masdar Institute and MIT professors.

The Masdar Institute is in the process of establishing a substantial
research activity in AI, Machine Learning, Multi-Agent Systems,
Cognitive Science, and their applications to energy systems (e.g.
smart grids, intelligent transportation systems, human behavior
modeling). For more details consult:
