*EKAW 2012 PhD Symposium*

*October 12th 2012, Galway (Ireland)*




*CALL for papers*

The Symposium is open to all PhD students. Its aim is to provide PhD 
students with an opportunity to have their work -- even in its early 
stages -- presented to an international audience. Moreover, their work 
will be reviewed by experienced researchers one of which will play the 
role of a privileged advisor (a mentor).

PhD students at the beginning of their work should have at least a 
defined problem statement and some ideas about the solution that they 
want to discuss. More advanced students will have to present their 
research plan, their evaluation protocol and their preliminary results.

*Important Dates:*

.Paper Submission: April 25th, 2012

.Notification: June 12th, 2012

.Camera-Ready paper: July 6th , 2012

.PhD Symposium: October 12th, 2012

.Symposium :*October 12th 2012: Galway*


*Paper outline*

Submissions should be structured around the following items which are 
the key methodological components required for a sound research narrative:

.Problem: describe the core problem of the PhD and motivate its 
relevance for the knowledge management, knowledge acquisition and 
knowledge representation areas.

.State of the art: describe relevant related work and point out areas 
that need to be improved;

.Proposed Approach: present the approach taken and motivate how this is 
novel with respect to existing work;

.Methodology: sketch the methodology that is (or will be) adopted

.Evaluation protocol: the approach to be taken for evaluating the 
results of the work;

.Results: describe the current status of the work and any results that 
have been reached so far;

.Conclusions and future work: conclude and specify the major items of 
future work.

Submissions should be in the format of the EKAW conference (link). They 
should be between 5 and 7 pages long.

Accepted papers will be published online as a CEUR workshop proceedings 
volume (http://ceur-ws.org <http://ceur-ws.org/>).
