KR 2010 Doctoral Consortium http://kr.org/KR2010/ 1) Aims and Scope The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that introduces students to senior researchers with research similar interests. The aims of the consortium are: - to provide a forum for students to present their current research, and receive feedback from other students and senior researchers - to promote contacts among PhD students working in similar areas - to support students with information and advice on academic, research and industrial careers We encourage submissions from PhD students at any level, and from any topic area within Knowledge Representation and Reasoning. Students accepted into the Doctoral Consortium may apply for some financial support for partly covering their KR-2010 conference travel expenses. Details will be announced later. 2) Application Applications must be submitted via our online submission site (see below). Each application must contain the following materials: - Thesis summary. A description of the problem being addressed, your motivation for addressing the problem, proposed plan of research, the progress to date (what you have already achieved and what remains to be done), and related work. It must be four pages maximum in double column format like the papers in previous KR proceedings. - Letter of recommendation. A letter from your thesis advisor that states that he/she supports your participation in the DC. The most preferred way of submission is to combine the thesis summary and letter of recommendation into a single PDF document. If you cannot do that, archive the two documents into a single zip file. In either case, the resulting single file has to be submitted via the EasyChair system at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kr10dc 3) Important Dates January 31, 2010: Deadline for application March 5: Acceptance notification May 9-13, 2010: Doctoral consortium _(at)_ K-2010 For further information, please contact the Doctoral Consortium chair: Yan Zhang University of Western Sydney, Australia yan_(at)_scm.uws.edu.au Disclaimer: http://www.kuleuven.be/cwis/email_disclaimer.htm _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
