Leuven, Belgium

Doctoral Consortium

To apply for participation in the doctoral school, we ask you to submit a 2 to 3 pages long paper using the ACM interim template

The paper should describe the context and motivation of your PhD research, the problem and aims that drive your research and your research objectives and/or questions. It should further describe and explain your (proposed) research approach and methods, a tentative timeline, and include a discussion of any results you may already have. Please also include the context of your PhD, i.e. the university programme in which you conduct your PhD, the status of your PhD, the expected completion date, and any other relevant information on your PhD situation.

Submissions will not be peer-reviewed. We will select students for participation with a view of prioritising those who would likely benefit most, i.e. students who have a clear plan as a foundation for discussion, but are not already too advanced in their PhD, to still be able to benefit from advice in developing their dissertation.

Submissions must be submitted via EasyChair. Students having their Doctoral Consortium submission accepted will be asked to prepare a presentation of their PhD research, and a poster which will be included in the MUM 2021 poster track. Accepted Doctoral Consortium submissions will not be included in the conference proceedings.

Submission deadline October 8th, 2021 (AoE)
Notification of review decisions October 22nd, 2021
