Doctoral Consortium

The technical program of presentations, workshops, and tutorials of the German Conference of Artificial Intelligence (KI 2013) is complemented by a doctoral consortium that invites participation by PhD students at any stage and from any subject area within AI. This year's doctoral consortium of the KI 2013 is organized as a joint doctoral consortium with the Annual Conference of the German Informatics Society (INFORMATIK 2013). It is held from September 16-17, 2013 in Koblenz, Germany. The aim of the doctoral consortium is

  • to provide PhD students with the opportunity to present their ongoing research and receive feedback from established researchers,
  • to promote networking among PhD students and AI researchers in general, both on a national and an international level and
  • to support students with advice on academic, research, and industrial careers.

Additionally to the presentation of ongoing research in talks or poster presentations, the doctoral consortium is implemented as a student mentoring program that introduces students to senior researchers in the relevant fields.
