International Doctoral Consortium at MICAI 2020
Call for papers

The Mexican Society on Artificial Intelligence (SMIA) invites students presently enrolled in a PhD program to participate in the doctoral consortium at the 19th edition of the Mexican International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (MICAI 2020), to be held on October 12 or 17 (to be announced), 2020, in Mexico City, Mexico.

The consortium offers a limited number of students the opportunity of presenting their work advances and receive evaluation and feedback from notorious researchers (advisers) and fellow participating students. The main objective of this forum is to allow the students to benefit from evaluations and discussions related to their particular research projects. This forum will also allow the students to know more about the research community on artificial intelligence in Mexico and identify the different research areas in order to promote scientific collaboration in a new generation of researchers. Finally, the consortium will enable communication and knowledge interchange between the Mexican industry and the research community.

The invitation is open to all doctorate program students with an approved research topic in Computer Science and with enough time to obtain the degree in order to be able to benefit from feedback. Interested students must send by e-mail to either Doctoral Consortium chairs the following information in a single PDF file:

  1. Abstract of the research project, written in English using Springer LNCS format and a maximum extent of 3 pages (note: the papers will not be published in LNCS; see below). This document must precisely indicate the extents of the research and the hypothesis and/or research topic, the justification of its importance, a brief description of the research objectives and methodology and the preliminary results or conclusions obtained so far. Incorporation of the following sections in the written document is recommended:

    Motivation

    Previous works in the area

    Hypothesis or research objectives

    Methodology

    State of the research

    Preliminary results or conclusions

    Bibliographical reference

2.    The student’s CV with a maximum extent of 2 pages (list of publications included).

The program committee of the Doctoral Consortium will evaluate the submitted documents, and will also participate as advisers during the doctoral consortium. Selected students will be invited to a discussion session in which advisers will give a feedback about the actual state of the presented work in terms of content as well as methodology and will give suggestions and recommendations about the future direction and focus about them.
