Ph.D students are invited to submit papers to the Doctoral Track. Proposals for workshops and special sessions are also welcome.
Call for papers
If you are a PhD student in agents and multi-agent systems, ...
- interested in feedback on your research plans;
- wish to improve your communication and presentation skills;
- eager to widen your horizon of professional interests;
- looking for some fun moments during work,
you should submit to Doctoral Track @ KES-AMSTA 2012. It offers you ...
- means to publish your paper in the well known LNCS/LNAI series;
- a dedicated feedback from prominent professors, experienced researchers and experts in your field of research;
- an international forum to present your research in a poster session;
- a dedicated LinkedIn group as a network building platform;
- a friendly atmosphere to meet other PhD students and researchers.
All contributions should be high quality, original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period. To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the KES-AMSTA 2012 International Programme Committee. Submitted papers should be prepared in Springer LNCS/LNAI style and should not exceed 10 pages. Please see the web site for details of the required paper format.
Different from other KES-AMSTA 2012 papers, Doctoral Track paper addresses specifically the Ph.D. student's thesis! The paper should:
- have a PhD student as a single author, or as first author with his/her advisor(s) as additional author(s);
- clearly formulate the research question;
- identify significant problems in the field of research;
- outline the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state-of-the-art in the research domain;
- clearly present preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far;
- sketch the applied research methodology;
- point out the contributions of the PhD student to the problem solution;
- state in what aspects the suggested solution is different, novel or better when compared to existing approaches to the problem.
