Call For Papers: RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2018
The RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2018 is an initiative of the RuleML and RR communities to attract and promote student research in rules and reasoning. It offers students a close contact with leading experts on the field, as well as the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas in a dynamic and friendly setting.
We invite PhD students at an early or intermediate stage of their PhD studies as well as exceptional Master’s students who are interested in pursuing a PhD to submit papers describing their research on any of the topics of interest of RuleML+RR 2018, available at http://2018.ruleml-rr.org/.
The submissions should cover the following aspects:
- A clear formulation of the research question and the motivation.
- An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.
- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state of existing solutions.
- A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far.
- A sketch of the applied research methodology and its positioning in the field.
- A description of the student project’s contribution to the problem solution.
- A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
- A research plan and the potential achievements.
The accepted DC papers will be presented to an interested audience and will be discussed with a panel of senior researchers from academia and the industry. Students will present their work through brief oral presentations during a dedicated session of the RuleML+RR main track, but also in the form of posters.
Accepted papers will be published online as part of http://ceur-ws.org Proceedings, which are broadly indexed, e.g., by SCOPUS and listed in standard bibliographic databases such as DBLP. This year, a selection of the best Doctoral Consortium papers will also be included as short papers in the main track Springer LNCS proceedings.
