CfP: KI 2012 Doctoral Consortium

28 Feb 2012 - 00:00

KI 2012, Saarbrücken, Germany, 24-27 September,

The German Conference on Artificial Intelligence traditionally brings together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of AI. The technical program of presentations, workshops, and tutorials is complemented by a doctoral consortium that invites participation by PhD students at any stage and from any subject area within AI.

The goals of the doctoral consortium are

  • to provide PhD students with the opportunity to present their ongoing research and receive feedback from established researchers
  • to promote networking among PhD students and AI researchers in general, both on a national and an international level;
  • to support students with information and advice on academic, research, and industrial careers.

The doctoral consortium is implemented as a student mentoring program that introduces students to senior researchers in the relevant fields. Students accepted for the Doctoral Consortium will participate also in the main KI 2012 conference and are waived registration fee.
