Please encourage your students who are considering
attending ADT or LPNMR to apply for the first joint doctoral consortium!
Details below.

*1st Joint Doctoral Consortium held as part of Algorithmic Decision Theory
2015 and Logic Programming and Non-Monotonic Reasoning 2015.*

*Program Website: *http://www.adt-lpnmr-dc.preflib.org/

*Program Highlights:*

This will represent the first doctoral consortium to be held jointly
between ADT and LPNMR.  There will be significant time for students from
both fields to present their work, meet mentors from their own and closely
related fields, and hear interesting panels related to their research
careers. We hope to accept equal numbers of students from ADT and LPNMR in
order to keep the group balanced and diverse.

The joint program will give students the opportunity to interact with
students and researchers within and outside their own focus.  We feel that
the closeness of ADT and LPNMR means that there are additional
opportunities for students to potential future collaborators and important
mentors from the other fields.

*Student Selection and Review Process:*

Students will be selected based on the assessment of the organizing
committee.  We will give preference to students who have settled on a
research topic or direction but still have some way to go in their
studies.  Students at both the PhD and masters level are encouraged to
apply, however, preference will be given to PhD students. Applications will
be reviewed based on several factors including the quality of the work
submitted, stage of research, evidence of research progress, the
committee’s assessment of the student’s contribution to and benefit from
participating in the DC, and input from the student’s advisor.

*Student Support:*

We will be able to support some travel as well as the cost of attendance to
the either ADT or LPNMR for accepted students.  The DC will include coffee
breaks, a provided lunch, and a dinner organized around Lexington with a
mentor or senior research of the student’s choosing.
