Doctoral Consortium - First Call for Applications

The 20th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge 
Representation and Reasoning (KR 2023) invites PhD students to apply for 
the Doctoral Consortium program.

Aims and Scope

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a student mentoring program bringing 
together PhD students and senior researchers from the area of KR. 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 DC is intended for PhD students who have a specific research 
proposal and some preliminary results, but who have sufficient time 
prior to completing their dissertation to benefit from the consortium 
experience. Preference will be given to students satisfying these 
criteria, but we also encourage students to apply who are at an earlier 
or more advanced stage of the completion of their thesis. Accepted 
students will participate in several dedicated DC events, which will 
likely consist of a lightning talk session and a poster and mentoring 
session (the precise format of the DC will be finalized closer to the 
conference). Each student will be given ample time to present their work 
and therefore be able to fully benefit from direct feedback from the 
assigned senior researcher mentor and the wider KR conference audience.

Application Submission

Applications must be submitted through the EasyChair conference system:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kr2023 [1]

Each application must contain the following elements combined into a 
single PDF document:

  	* 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. The maximum number of pages is four 
(bibliography included) and the same style as for KR paper submissions 
should be used (see https://kr.org/KR2023/ [2]).
  	* Curriculum Vitae. A description of your background and relevant 
experience (research, education, employment), maximum two pages.
  	* Brief letter of recommendation. A brief letter from your thesis 
advisor that states that she/he supports your participation in the DC.
  	* Optionally, a suggestion of some potential mentors with similar 
research interests, who could give good advice on technical aspects 
related to the work, and/or career opportunities.

The selection process will consider the quality of the submitted 
proposal and the stage of the student's PhD project. Doctoral students 
who submit to the DC are permitted to have previously published their 
research, and are encouraged to submit papers to KR 2023 and associated 
conferences and workshops.
