		     KR 2010 Doctoral Consortium


1) Aims and Scope

The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that introduces
students to senior researchers with research similar 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-2010 conference travel
expenses. Details will be announced later.

2) Application

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 double
column format like the papers in previous KR proceedings.

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

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