KR2008 DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM Second Call for Application September 16 - 19, 2008 Sydney, Australia The 11th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR2008) invites PhD students to apply for the Doctoral Consortium program. 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; The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that introduces students to senior researchers with similar interests. Students accepted into the Doctoral Consortium are waived registration fee for KR2008 and present their work during a poster session. They can apply for a scholarship that partly covers their travel expenses. We encourage submissions from PhD students at any level, and from any topic area within Knowledge Representation and Reasoning. 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, the 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 the usual KR double-column style. - Letter of recommendation. A letter from your thesis advisor that states that (s)he supports your participation in the DC. IMPORTANT DATES May 1, 2008 Deadline for application May 25, 2008 Acceptance notification September 16-19, 2008 Doctoral consortium Application Submission The most preferred way of submission is to combine the thesis summary and letter of recommendation into a single PDF or postscript 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=kr08dc For further information, please contact the Doctoral Consortium chair: Carsten Lutz TU Dresden, Germany lutz_(on)_tcs.inf.tu-dresden.de _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
