Instructions for Doctoral Consortium (DC) / Young Researcher Track (YRT)

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) / Young Researcher Track (YRT) is addressed to PhD students and constitutes a part of the main conference program. It provides a forum with a structured program in which PhD students are matched with a mentor to discuss and present their work during its early stages, meet peers who have related interests, and work with more senior members of the field (mentors).

PhD students should:

  • submit their work with advisors acknowledged appropriately, as co-authors or otherwise
  • submit only work for which they are primary investigators
  • submit only work which has not been published before (unless it refers to work reported in a regular paper submitted to one of the IIS conferences)
  • be three (3) pages long and follow the submission instructions of scientific papers
