    Doctoral consortium

Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium brings together junior and experienced researchers in planning, scheduling and related areas from across the globe, in particular those studying for a Doctoral degree. It provides a forum for networking with the ICAPS community (including mentoring, career guidance, and research skill advice) in an informal, social setting.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held as a full day workshop on June 12th, 2016. The program includes invited talks on research skill and career development, the opportunity for participant to give a short presentation, and a poster session during the main conference. This year there will also be an opportunity for participants to register and take part in the Knowledge Engineering Competition which will be run directly after the Doctoral Consortium finishes.
