The 10th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation 
and Reasoning (KR2006) 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 will introduce 
students to senior researchers with similar interests. A poster session 
will be held during KR2006. Students accepted into the Doctoral Consortium
will receive a scholarship that covers conference registration and part of
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 the KR2006 online submission site (see below).
Each application must be a single PDF document containing the following

- Thesis summary. A description of the problem being addressed, your 
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 double column
format like the papers in previous KR proceedings.

- Letter of recommendation. A letter from your thesis advisor that states
that he/she supports your participation in the DC.
