The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a frame where students can present their on going research work and meet other students and researchers, and obtain feedback on future research directions.

The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who are still far from completing their dissertation.

All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough reviewing process with the aim to provide detailed and constructive feedback. The accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the conference proceedings.

The submissions should identify:

  • Problem statement
  • Related work
  • Hypothesis
  • Proposal
  • Preliminary Results and/or Evaluation Plan
  • Reflections

Format

All papers must be formatted according to the LNCS/LNAI template with a maximum length of 2 pages, including figures and references.

Submission

All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the PAAMS 2017 conference management system.

Publication

Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing series.
