DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
MICAI’ 2019


The Mexican Society on Artificial Intelligence (SMIA) invites Mexican students presently enrolled in doctorate programs either in Mexico or abroad to participate in the Doctoral Consortium at the 18th edition of the Mexican International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (MICAI 2019, [1]), to be held on October 27 to November 2, 2019 in Xalapa, Mexico.

The consortium offers a limited number of students the opportunity of presenting their work advances to 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:

1.   Abstract of the research project, written in English using Springer LNCS format ([2]) and a maximum extent of 3 pages. This document must precisely indicate the extents of the research and the hypothesis and/or research topic, the justification of its importance, a brief description of the research objectives, methodology and the preliminary results or conclusions obtained so far. Incorporation of the following sections in the written document is recommended: 

  • Motivation
  • Previous works in the area
  • Hypothesis or research objectives
  • Methodology
  • State of the research
  • Preliminary results (or conclusions)
  • Bibliographical reference

2.   The student’s curriculum vitae with a maximum extent of 2 pages (list of publications included).

Doctoral Consortium Chairs:

A DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM PROGRAM COMMITTEE 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. 

Other benefits:

  • Abstracts of the accepted papers will appear in the CD of the MICAI 2019 memories workshops and Doctoral Consortium.
