Call for Applications

Students are invited to apply for admission to the doctoral consortium to be held at the IJCAI conference, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 25 July-1 August 2015.

The doctoral consortium provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to discuss their research interests and career objectives with established researchers in AI, network with other participants, and receive mentoring about career planning and career options. The doctoral consortium will expose students to different areas of research within AI and help building professional connections within the international community of AI researchers. We also welcome applications of students who recently obtained their Ph.D. (after August 31st, 2014) provided that they do not have a faculty position.
