International Conference on Logic Programming, ICLP'09 Doctoral Consortium

http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~toms/DC2009/

 International Conference on Logic Programming

                   Fifth ICLP Doctoral Consortium

                     Pasadena (California, USA)
                         July 14-17, 2009
              http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~toms/DC2009/
                            -----------

The  2009 ICLP  Doctoral Consortium  (DC) is  the fifth international
doctoral  consortium  to  be  offered  as part  of  the  International
Conference on  Logic Programming. The  DC will take place  during ICLP
2009 in Pasadena, California, USA. The Doctoral Consortium is designed
for doctoral students  working in areas  related to logic programming,
as well as  Master's students interested in pursuing  doctoral degrees
in the field of logic programming.

The Doctoral  Consortium aims to provide students  with an opportunity
to  present  and  discuss  their  research directions  and  to  obtain
feedback from  peers as  well as world-renowned  experts in  the field.
The Doctoral  Consortium will also  offer invited speakers  and  panel
discussions.

                            ------------

The Doctoral Consortium  is held the during the  regular activities of
the ICLP 2009 Conference. The aims of the Doctoral Consortium are:

 * To provide  doctoral students  working in the  field of  logic and
   constraint programming  with a friendly and open  forum to present
   their research  ideas, listen to ongoing work  from peer students,
   and receive constructive feedback

 * To  provide  students with  relevant  information about  important
   issues for doctoral candidates and future academics

 * To  develop a  supportive community  of scholars  and a  spirit of
   collaborative research.

 * To support  a new generation  of researchers with  information and
   advice  on  academic,  research, industrial,  and  non-traditional
   career paths.

The Consortium is designed for  students currently enrolled in a Ph.D.
program,  though  we  are  also  open to  exceptions  (e.g.,  students
currently in  a Masters program  and interested in  doctoral studies).
Students  at any stage in their doctoral studies are  encouraged  to  
apply.  Applicants  are expected  to  be  conducting
research in the field of Logic Programming; topics of interest include
(but are not limited to):

 * Theoretical Foundations of Logic and Constraint Logic Programming
 * Sequential and Parallel Implementation Technology
 * Static and Dynamic Analysis, Abstract Interpretation, Compilation
   Technology, Verification
 * Logic-based Paradigms (e.g., Answer Set Programming, Concurrent
   Logic Programming, Inductive Logic Programming)
 * Innovative Applications of Logic Programming

The  Consortium  allows  participants  to  interact  with  established
researchers and with  other students, through presentations, question-
answer  sessions, panel  discussions, and  invited  presentations. The
Doctoral Consortium will provide  the possibility to reflect - through
short  activities,  information sessions,  and  discussions  - on  the
process and lessons of research and life in academia. Each participant
will give a short, critiqued, research presentation.

The Doctoral  Consortium will be held  on a date to  be determined, in
parallel with the regular activities  of the ICLP 2009 conference; the
ICLP  conference   will  run  from   July  14th  to  July  17th,  2009.
Doctoral Consortium  participants will  be offered the  opportunity to
have   their  abstracts   published  in   the  ICLP   2009  conference
proceedings.

Discussants:
Several renowned faculty members and researchers in the field of Logic
Programming will  join in evaluating  the submission packets  and will
participate  in the  Doctoral  Consortium, providing  feedback to  the
presenters. The list  of the discussants will be  published at a later
date.
