The RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2022 is an initiative of the RuleML+RR community to attract and promote student research in Artificial Intelligence, especially research on rule-based formalisms and reasoning. It offers students a close contact with leading experts in the field, as well as the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas in a dynamic and friendly setting. This DC is organized as part of Declarative AI 2022: Rules, Reasoning, Decisions, and Explanations (Virtual, 26-30 September 2022).
We invite PhD students at an early or intermediate stage of their PhD studies as well as exceptional Master’s students who are interested in pursuing a PhD to submit papers describing their research on any of the topics of interest to RuleML+RR 2022.
RuleML+RR DC papers are 8-15 pages (originally 8 pages; up to 15 pages can be used at the author's discretion) written in English following the CEUR-WS.org style template CEURART (1-column variant) available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip and submitted electronically in PDF format jointly with a maximum 2 pages CV (as one PDF file). Please submit your paper and the above required documents via:
via the RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2022 track. If you do not have an EasyChair account, please sign up at https://easychair.org.
Since Easychair only accepts one file for the submission, applicants can put all the above required documents in one PDF file. If the paper gets accepted, then the applicant will only submit the paper for publication in the proceedings.
The submission should cover the following aspects:
A clear formulation of the research question and the motivation.
An identification of the significant problem in the field of research.
An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state of existing solutions.
A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far.
A sketch of the applied research methodology and its positioning in the field.
A description of the student project’s contribution to the problem solution.
A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
A research plan and the potential achievements.
The accepted DC papers will be presented to an interested audience and will be discussed with a panel of senior researchers from academia and the industry. Students will present their work through brief oral presentations during a dedicated session of RuleML+RR.
Accepted papers will be published online as part of http://ceur-ws.org Proceedings, which are broadly indexed, e.g., by SCOPUS and listed in standard bibliographic databases such as DBLP.
