KR 2010 Doctoral Consortium


Aims and Scope

The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that introduces
students to senior researchers with research similar interests. 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

We encourage submissions from PhD students at any level, and from any topic
area within Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.

Students accepted into the Doctoral Consortium may apply for financial
support for partly covering their KR-2010 conference travel expenses.

Doctoral Consortium participants awarded financial support by the DC
Committee are expected to contribute their time (about 6 hours) to help with
organizational and administrative tasks during the conference.


Applications must be submitted via our online submission site (see below).
Each application must contain the following materials:

   * 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.

The most preferred way of submission is to combine the thesis summary and
letter of recommendation into a single PDF document. If you cannot do that,
archive the two documents into a single zip file. In either case, the
resulting single file has to be submitted via the EasyChair system at


Important Dates

   * January 31, 2010: Deadline for application
   * March 5: Acceptance notification
   * May 9-13, 2010: Doctoral Consortium @ KR-2010

The Doctoral Consortium is sponsored by KR Inc.
