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
