The Mexican Society on Artificial Intelligence (SMIA) invites students presently enrolled in a PhD program to participate in the doctoral consortium at the 14th edition of the Mexican International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (MICAI 2015), to be held on October 25 to 31, 2015, Cuernavaca, Mexico.
The consortium offers a limited number of students the opportunity of presenting their work advances and receive evaluation and feedback from notorious researchers (advisers) and fellow participating students. The main objective of this forum is to allow the students to benefit from evaluations and discussions related to their particular research projects. This forum will also allow the students to know more about the research community on artificial intelligence in Mexico and identify the different research areas in order to promote scientific collaboration in a new generation of researchers. Finally, the consortium will enable communication and knowledge interchange between the Mexican industry and the research community.
The invitation is open to all doctorate program students with an approved research topic in Computer Science and with enough time to obtain the degree in order to be able to benefit from feedback. Interested students must send by e-mail to either Doctoral Consortium chairs the following information in a single PDF file:
• Previous works in the area
• Hypothesis or research objectives
• State of the research
• Preliminary results or conclusions
• Bibliographical reference
2. The student’s CV with a maximum extent of 2 pages (list of publications included).
The program committee of the Doctoral Consortium will evaluate the submitted documents, and will also participate as advisers during the doctoral consortium. Selected students will be invited to a discussion session in which advisers will give a feedback about the actual state of the presented work in terms of content as well as methodology and will give suggestions and recommendations about the future direction and focus about them.
Accepted abstracts will appear in the CD edition of the proceedings of MICAI workshops and Doctoral Consortium.
Selected participants with outstanding research proposals or results will obtain registration fee waiver at MICAI.
