Call For Doctoral Symposium

Call For Doctoral Symposium Papers

The Doctoral (and other Young Researcher) Symposium at AIMLSystems 2022 invites submissions from Masters/PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to have fruitful peer-to-peer discussions and to get feedback from leading senior researchers about their current research work, including developing a better understanding of the problems at hand, overarching principles, the limitations of current methods, and presenting new techniques and algorithms.

Guidelines for Abstract Submission:

We invite applicants to submit a 2-page extended abstract compiling your research towards your dissertation in a coherent manner. We welcome papers describing published novel research, work-in-progress, and comparison of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned). We recommend that the abstract highlights the following about your research:

  • Motivation
  • Major contributions of the thesis
  • Key challenges identified or addressed
  • Modeling challenges when deployed as systems for use
  • Empirical and/or qualitative discussion of results
  • Timeline and roadmap for thesis plan (may include some projects that are in future plans)

Submissions to the Doctoral Symposium should satisfy the following criteria:

  • The first author of any submission should be a full-time Masters / PhD student, or a Postdoctoral researcher having completed his / her PhD not earlier than 2020, affiliated with any academic institution.
  • The submission should describe research work towards your current thesis.

Submissions will be evaluated based on the clarity of the research proposal, the significance of the research work, and relevance to the topics of interest.
