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
