Students are invited to apply for admission to the Doctoral Consortium 
to be held at the the AIIA 2019 conference which will take place in 
Rende, from the 19th to the 22nd of November 2019.

Submission Deadline: September 15th, 2019

The AIIA 2019 Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for Ph.D. 
students to explore and develop their research interests in the 
Artificial Intelligence field, in the broader sense, under the guidance 
of a panel of distinguished researchers from both academia and industry. 
Attending students will have the opportunity to present their work in a 
dedicated workshop and to share their work with other students in a 
similar situation and with senior researchers during a dedicated 
workshop. During the entire conference every student will be paired with 
a senior mentor (selected from the DC program committee) who will 
dedicate some time for interacting with the student. AIIA Doctoral 
Consortium main objectives are the following:

          Provide a supportive setting for feedback on students' current 
research and guidance on future research directions.
          Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their 
own work from faculty and students outside their own institution, taking 
advantage of mentorship opportunities.
          Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars 
and a spirit of collaborative research.
          Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with 
other researchers and conference events.

We accept contributions from students regularly enrolled in some Ph.D. 
program. Exceptions might include students not yet enrolled in a Ph.D. 
program, but that are strongly motivated to enroll in the near future. 
Every contribution should be in the form of up to 5 pages extended 
abstracts including references, in Springer LNCS format. In line with 
the main research track of the conference, the AIIA 2019 Doctoral 
Consortium welcomes submissions on research across all areas of AI, 
including (but not limited to) traditional topics such as machine 
learning, search, planning, knowledge representation, reasoning, 
constraint satisfaction, natural language processing, robotics and 
perception, and multiagent systems.
Students with accepted extended abstracts are invited to give an oral 
presentation of their work during the Doctoral Consortium, and to 
prepare a poster to be displayed during the poster sessions of the main 
conference. The authors of the accepted extended abstracts are requested 
to attend the Doctoral Consortium and to register to the main 
conference. Poster should include student's contacts in order to allow 
any interested person to fix an appointment with the student and discuss 
her/his work during the conference.

Extended abstract submission, format and publication

Prepare an up to five-pages extended abstract describing your current or 
future research work (or on some specific issue) in the LNCS Proceedings 
Format. You should be the only author of the extended abstract and you 
should mention your advisor.

We allow two types of contributions:

        Overview of the Ph.D. work, which should include: 
Introduction/Motivation, State of the Art, Problem Statement and 
Contributions, Research Methodology and Approach, Preliminary or 
Intermediate Results, Evaluation Plan, Conclusions (recommended for 
students in an early stage of the Ph.D.)
        Presentation of one specific scientific achievement you have 
reached during the Ph.D. course. The contribution could have been 
already published in some other venue.

Extended abstracts will be evaluated by at least 2 members of the 
Doctoral Consortium Committee. The main evaluation criteria include 
originality of the work, scientific quality, validity of claims and 
The DC Committee will assign a Best Ph.D. Paper award to the best 
contribution, by evaluating the subject described in the extended 
abstract, the quality of the presentation and poster.

Accepted extended abstracts will be possibly published on CEUR WS 
Proceedings upon request.

Extended abstract will be handled through Easychair at
