                      Call for Applications

                        June 10-14, 2012

The 13th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge
Representation and Reasoning (KR 2012) invites PhD students to apply
for the Doctoral Consortium program.


The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that
introduces students to senior researchers with similar research
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.

We encourage submissions from PhD students at any level, and from
any topic area within Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.

Students accepted into the Doctoral Consortium may apply for some
financial support for partly covering their KR 2012 conference
travel expenses. Details will be announced later.


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 AAAI style (http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php).

- Curriculum Vita. A description of your background and relevant
experience (research, education, employment).

- Letter of recommendation. A letter from your thesis advisor that
states that he/she supports your participation in the DC.

- (Optional) You can suggest 3-5 potential mentors with similar
research interests as you, who could give you good advice on
technical aspects of your work, and/or your career.

The most preferred way of submission is to combine the thesis
summary and the letter of recommendation (and, optionally, the list
of suggested mentors) into a single PDF document. If you cannot do
that, archive the documents into a single zip file. In either case,
the resulting single file has to be submitted via the EasyChair
system at

   https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kr2012dc .
