Call for Applications
Students are invited to apply for admission to the doctoral consortium
to be held at the IJCAI conference, New York City, July 9-15, 2016.
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 build
professional connections within the international community of AI
Deadline for applications: February 22, 2016
Notification of acceptance: March 31, 2016
Applicants should submit:
1. a two-page extended abstract that summarizes the research problem
being investigated, the specific contributions made, and directions
for the remaining work. The extended abstract has to be formatted
using the IJCAI 2-column format, and is strictly limited to 2 pages,
including references. When writing it remember that the audience is
knowledgeable about AI, but not necessarily in the narrow topic of your
thesis. Be sure to introduce the content at a level that the general
IJCAI audience can understand it, but also include enough low-level
details for the experts to understand your unique contributions.
Accepted extended abstracts will be published in the IJCAI Proceedings
and be presented briefly at the doctoral consortium.
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
a. Have you attended the IJCAI DC previously? 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 the main IJCAI 2016 conference
and/or an IJCAI 2016 workshop?
c. When do you expect to graduate?
d. What type of job do you desire after graduation (research,
teaching, development, etc)?
4. name of the thesis advisor and information, including title,
department, affiliation and email address. A request for a letter
of support will be emailed to your thesis advisor.
