IJCAI 2015 - Doctoral Consortium

Call for Applications

Students are invited to apply for admission to the doctoral consortium
to be held at the IJCAI conference, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 25 July-1
August 2015.

The doctoral consortium provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to
discuss their research interests and career objectives with
established researchers in AI, network with other participants, and
receive mentoring about career planning and career options. The
doctoral consortium will expose students to different areas of
research within AI and help building professional connections within
the international community of AI researchers. We also welcome
applications of students who recently obtained their Ph.D. (after
August 31st, 2014) provided that they do not have a faculty position.

Deadline for applications: February 26, 2015
Notification of acceptance: April 16, 2015

Perspective applicants should submit:

1. a two-page extended abstract on their thesis, formatted following
the IJCAI requirements. Accepted abstracts will be included in the
IJCAI Proceedings and be presented briefly at the doctoral consortium.
Acceptance for publication is not a requirement for admission to the
doctoral consortium, but submission is required to apply to the
doctoral consortium. Accepted extended abstracts will be published in
the IJCAI Proceedings.

2. a curriculum vitae (2 pages) with background (name, university),
education (degree sought, year/status in degree, previous degrees),
employment, and relevant experience in research (publications,
presentations, conferences attended, etc).

3. a personal statement (1-2 pages max) with answers to the following questions:

a. Is this the first time you attend IJCAI DC? If not, have you
attended other DC? Please say which one(s) and what was most useful to
you.

b. Have you submitted an article to IJCAI and/or IJCAI workshops?

c. When do you expect to graduate?
