The AI*IA Doctoral Consortium (DC) is offered as part of the Symposium of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA), that will take place in University of Rome “La Sapienza” on 14th-16th June, 2012. It follows the very positive experience of the first edition of the DC in the 2010 AI*IA Symposium, according to the spirit of the DCs within main international conferences (such as IJCAI and AAAI).

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 Master’s program and interested in doctoral studies). Students at any stage in their doctoral studies are encouraged to apply, since contributions describing both mature and preliminary work are welcome.

Applicants are expected to be conducting research in the field of Artificial Intelligence; topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Agents & Multi-agent Systems
- Case-based Reasoning
- Cognitive Modeling & Interaction
- Constraints & Search
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Machine Learning
- Model-based Reasoning
- Natural Language Processing
- Planning and Scheduling
- Robotics
- Uncertainty in AI
- Applications of AI
The Consortium will allow participants to interact with established researchers and with other students, through presentations, question-answer sessions, panel discussions and invited presentations.

The submission package should include a cover page, a research summary and a letter of recommendation from your advisor. Please send the submission package by e-mail to including the three documents as separate PDF files in attachment.
All submissions must be in English, and should not contain any proprietary or confidential material. Submissions arriving after the deadline will not be considered. Detailed instructions for each of the documents follow below.

Cover Page: Please include the following information in the cover page:
- Statement of interest in participating in the Doctoral Consortium
- Full name of School and Department in which you are earning your doctorate degree
- Contact information - address, telephone number, and email address
- Title of your research and keywords pertinent to your research
- The URL of your web page (if any)
- Name of your supervising professor
- Current stage in your program of study (e.g., Master/PhD student, start date)

Research Summary: Prepare your research summary as a PDF document, using the Springer Verlag LNCS Conference Publication Format. Make sure to include your complete name, address and affiliation, and keep the length of your research summary to no more than five pages, including figures, tables and the bibliography. The body of your research summary should provide a clear overview of the research, its potential impact and its current status, but a summary focusing on a single research topic investigated during your Ph.D. studies is also welcome.

Letter of Recommendation: Include a letter of recommendation written by your Graduate Advisor or Thesis Advisor. Please, invite your advisor to include an assessment of the current status of your thesis research and an indication of the expected deadline for thesis submission. In addition, your advisor should indicate what she/he hopes you would gain from your participation in the Doctoral Consortium.

The proceedings of the Doctoral Consortium will be published on-line on the DC web site.

There are limited funds available to cover travel expenses. Students willing to apply should state their request in the Cover Page, provide adequate motivation and include an estimated budget. Additionally, the students should mention if they have applied for other forms of financial support.
