Doctoral Consortium July 26, 2007
Submission Deadline: April 20, 2007- Closed
The ICCM 2007 Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to explore their research interests in a multi-approach workshop, under the guidance of a panel of research faculty, consisting of Anthony Hornof (University of Oregon) and two other distinguished faculty to be determined. The Consortium has the following objectives:
* Provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants' current research and guidance on future research directions.
* Develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research.
* Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and conference events.
The Doctoral Consortium review committee will select participants based on their anticipated contribution to the Consortium objectives. Participants typically have settled on thesis directions but have not necessarily had their research proposals accepted by their thesis committees. The Doctoral Consortium encourages participation of students from a wide variety of modeling approaches. Students from under-represented groups or institutions, including students from institutions where modeling is not a strength, are especially encouraged to apply.
Prepare a two-page extended abstract of your thesis work in the Conference Publications Format including title, author information, keywords, thesis research summary, and references. The abstract of accepted students will appear in the proceedings. Submit the abstract as a PDF file by email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org . Put your name and "Doctoral Consortium" in the email message subject field. In the email message, include your name, your department, your institution, your thesis advisor's name, and keywords that describe your research area (both modeling approach and domain area).
Letter of Recommendation
Have a letter of recommendation from your thesis advisor emailed to email@example.com (by April 20 2007). The recommendation should include formal reviews of your research and the expected timetable for completion.
To apply, prepare and email to firstname.lastname@example.org the following:
an extended abstract in PDF form and a letter of recommendation. In the email sent to email@example.com, include the following information: your name, your department, your institution, your thesis advisor's name, and keywords that describe your research area (both modeling approach and domain area).
Travel, housing, and conference registration support will be available for all students accepted into the Doctorial Consortium.
