Doctoral Consortium, RR 2013
The Doctoral Consortium of the 7th International Conference on Web
Reasoning and Rules Systems (RR 2013) will provide doctoral students in
Web Reasoning and related areas with the unique opportunity to present
and discuss their research directions, being involved into
state-of-the-art research discussion and being supported in
establishing fruitful collaborations with prominent researchers and
pioneers the field of Web Reasoning and Rules and related areas.
The co-location of RR 2013 with the Reasoning Web Summer School and with
other relevant related events will provide multiple opportunities for
participating students to enhance their education.
The Consortium will allow participants to interact with established
researchers through the following initiatives:
- The poster presentation session accompanied by a written research summary, which will be distributed at the conference. The poster presentation session will be preceded by a spotlight presentations session where poster presenters give 5-minute teaser talks as advertisement for their posters.
- The mentoring lunch will consist of a lunch break where a senior researcher shares a lunch table with 3-4 students. The researcher will be charged with initiating and driving a discussion on general topics concerning research, career, and Web Reasoning as a discipline. He will also be available for answering questions by the students.
To apply for participation to the RR2013 Doctoral Consortium students are asked to submit
1. A research summary (max 6 pages) of their PhD research addressing the following aspects:
- Applicant's complete name, address and affiliation as well as the title of the research
- The main problem you are trying to tackle and why it is relevant
- What is the state-of-the-art in relation to existing solutions to the problem
- Advances beyond the state-of-the-art in terms of your specific contribution and research plan
- Current status of the research plan
- Expected achievements and possible evaluation metrics to establish the level of success of your results
- Bibliographic References
2. A statement of interest in participating to the Doctoral Consortium (less than 1 page)
Both the research summary and the attachment must be in PDF format and be formatted according to the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
All Submissions should be send via our Easychair Account:
All the accepted contributions have to be presented.
The best submissions will present their work as regular (15 min) presentation, and they will be given the option to have their research summaries included in the conference proceedings (Springer LNCS).
