[PVS] Call for Submissions for Constraint Programming 2009 DoctoralProgram

Call for Submissions for Constraint Programming 2009 Doctoral Program

Held in conjunction with the 15th International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

As part of the Constraint Programming Conference for 2009, we are
inviting PhD students to apply for the Doctoral Program. This program
provides an opportunity for current PhD students to meet each other as
well as researchers in the field. Participants will also present their
work via both a poster and a talk.

Participation in the Doctoral Program will involve:

•Talks from researchers in the field about career opportunities
•Presentation of talks and posters
•Discussions with a mentor with similar research interests
•Entry to the CP 2009 conference

Eligibility and Applications

The program is open to all PhD students involved in Constraint
Programming or related fields at any level. Applicants are required to
submit a short paper (no more than 6 pages) in the Springer LNCS Style
and the author list should specify who is the student and who is/are
the supervisor/s. Submissions are required to be in either PostScript
or PDF format. Papers should be submitted at:

The paper should contain original unpublished work which is at least
in part the work of the student. It can either be completed or in
progress. The papers will be available on the conference webpage after
the conference.

Any students with full papers accepted in the CP conference do not
need to submit a paper to the Doctoral Program, but are automatically
eligible for entry. Such students should email both Doctoral Program
chairs expressing their interest. This email should also include the
paper title, abstract and author list.

All students applying for the Doctoral Program need their supervisor/s
to send a letter of recommendation to CP.09.DP@gmail.com detailing:

•the student's area of work.
•the supervisor's support of the student's application.
•the expected completion date for the student.
•the reason for wanting to attend the doctoral program.
•whether or not the student has been to the doctoral program and/or
received financial assistance previously and how many times.
•if the student has a full paper accepted in the main CP conference.

•Submission ~ Monday 22nd of June 2009
•Acceptance notification ~ Friday 17th of July 2009
•Final versions ~ Friday 31st of July 2009
•Doctoral Program ~ September 20th - 24th 2009

Financial Support

There are funds available to support students by providing
accomodation and free conference registration. If there are
insufficient funds to provide this for all doctoral program
participants, preference will be given to students who have not
previously benefited.
