The ECAI 2020 Organizing Committee invites Starting Researchers (those who have not been awarded a doctoral degree but also researchers with not more than three years of experience after getting their PhD) to apply for taking part in the Doctoral Consortium (DC) to be held in conjunction with the conference. The DC provides an opportunity for Starting Researchers to discuss their research interests and career objectives with established researchers in AI, to do networking with other participants, and to receive mentoring about career planning and career options.
It includes two main sessions:
This session will be chaired by Martin Holm Mortensen, Senior Project Manager at FundingBox Research; Master of Science in European & International Politics from The University of Edinburgh and Ba. in Public Administration from Roskilde University. 20 years of experience in startup management as a founder, c-level manager and on the Board of startups like ComputerPeople (Nordics), CapaSystems (USA + Denmark), CopenhagenDowntown (Denmark) and Clippingpath.com (UK + Bangladesh). During the last 7 years Martin has changed focus towards helping startups with commercialization, sales and investments externally as a Project Manager, Consultant and Investment Manager in some of Europa’s best accelerators and growth projects like the Fundingbox lead EU program “IMPACT Growth”, the Nordic accelerator “Accelerace Management” and the UK accelerator “NBG” in Nottingham.
It is worth noting that DC is part of the ECAI 2020 Mentoring and Communication for Starting Researchers (MC4SR). Afternoon of August 29 and morning of August 30, DC participants are free either to work on their presentations for the EP4SR contest or to attend any ECAI tutorial or another MC4SR event. In particular, DC participants are encouraged to attend STAIRS. Besides, DC participants are invited to take part or at least to attend presentations of finalists in the 3MT contest (Wednesday 2). Also, there will be Lunch with a Fellow (Monday 31 and Wednesday 2). Of course, DC participants are encouraged to apply for being involved in these lunch events. Moreover, there will be a Job Fair (Tuesday 1) in which DC participants are encouraged to take part too.
