The 17th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR 2020) invites PhD students to apply for the Doctoral Consortium program.
The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a student mentoring program bringing together PhD students and senior researchers from the area of KR. The aims of the consortium are:
The DC is intended for PhD students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who have sufficient time prior to completing their dissertation to benefit from the consortium experience. Preference will be given to students satisfying these criteria, but well-motivated applications from students who are at earlier or later stages of their doctoral studies will still be considered.
For accepted students there will be a row of dedicated events, including DC invited talks on research practice, a lightning talk session, a poster session, and a mentoring lunch. Each student will be given ample time to present their work and therefore be able to fully benefit from direct feedback from the assigned senior researcher mentor and the wider KR conference audience.
Applications must be submitted by email. Each application must contain the following elements combined into a single PDF document.:
The selection process will consider the quality of the submitted proposal and the stage of the student's PhD project.
Doctoral students who submit to the DC are permitted to have previously published on their research, and are encouraged to submit papers to KR 2020 and associated conferences and workshops.
Application deadline: May 6, 2020
Acceptance notification: May 27, 2020
Doctoral Consortium: September 12-18, 2020 (TBC)
