Doctoral consortium

This year, the steering committee of ICPRAI 2022 proposes the first version of the Doctoral Consortium (DC) as a satelite event to the main conference offering the opportunity to PhD students to present their work and meet senior researchers in their feld of interest.

The goal of the ICPRAI 2022 Doctoral Consortium is to create an opportunity for Ph.D. students to test their research ideas, present their current progress and future plans, and receive constructive criticism and insights related to their future work and career perspectives. A mentor (a senior researcher who is active in the field) will be assigned to each student to provide individual feedback. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present an overview of their research plan during a special poster session.

Participation in the ICPRAI 2022 Doctoral Consortium will be limited to 25 students. Prospective participants are encouraged to submit their application. The Doctoral Consortium Committee will then review all applications received. Preference will be given to students who are at a stage in their studies most likely to benefit (i.e., they have identified a research direction and published some initial results, but the thesis is not yet set in stone).

Submission procedure

Students willing to participate should submit a participation package in a single pdf file. The submission package should be prepared using the following templates and should contain the following information:

  • Student’s name
  • University
  • Title of your thesis
  • Supervisor of the thesis
  • Starting and expected finalization date of the PhD
  • Short research plan (1-2 pages about the work)
  • Short CV (1-2 pages).

The research plan should contain an overview of the PhD topic relative to the topics of the main conference, the steps made so far (including a list of publications), and the actions planned before finishing the PhD, especially novel research ideas to be pursued.

Submission should be done via easychair (select Track "ICPRAI 2022 - Doctoral Consortium") :
