2-5 June 2006, KR2006 DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM, Lake District, UK

Date: 2-5 June 2006
Location: Lake District, UK
Deadline: 2 March 2006

The 10th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR2006) invites PhD students to apply for the Doctoral Consortium program. It is a student mentoring program that will introduce students to senior researchers with 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.

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 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.
