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:
It is worth noting that DC is part of the ECAI 2020 Mentoring and Communication for Starting Researchers (MC4SR). Therefore, DC participants are encouraged to attend other MC4SR events (e.g., STAIRS, Meeting with a Fellow and Job Fair) as well as ECAI tutorials.
If you have any inquiry, please do not hesitate to get in touch with ECAI2020 DC Chairs:
20 June 2020 Doctoral Consortium application
5 July 2020 Doctoral Consortium notification
20 July 2020 Final Abstract for Proceedings and Pre-recorded Presentation
All accepted abstracts (2 pages including references) will be published in the Doctoral Consortium proceedings and presented during the Mentoring session. Abstracts should be formatted according to the ECAI2020 formatting style defined for Highlights. Details are available at ECAI2020 website:
All DC participants are required to register for the ECAI MC4SR event (there is no fee; registration is free of charge). Participants can attend both training and mentoring session. However, only Starting AI Researchers with an accepted abstract can present their work during the Mentoring session.
Any questions about the Doctoral Consortium should be directed to the Doctoral Consortium Chairs:
