The Organizing Committee of the 19th International Conference on 
Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS'09) invites Ph.D. students to 
apply for the Doctoral Consortium. The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is 
to provide a forum for students to discuss their work with other 
students and senior researchers working in the same area.

The Doctoral Consortium will feature a full day workshop on September 
19th where all accepted papers will be given a short time slot for oral 
presentation in small, themed clusters of common interest with students 
and senior researchers. Participants will have further opportunity to 
present at the poster session of the main conference.

Application requirements

We encourage submissions from Ph.D. students who are already working on 
their dissertations. Preference will be given to students who are far 
enough along to have formulated their dissertation topic. Applicants 
should submit an extended abstract of four (4) pages maximum. The 
submission should be in AAAI style and sent as a PDF file by email to 
Antonio Garrido (agarridot at dsic dot upv dot es). It should describe 
original work that is part of the doctoral work of the student. We 
encourage the submission of work that is still in progress.

Students who wish to participate in the Doctoral Consortium and have a 
full paper describing their work accepted to the technical programme of 
ICAPS'09 are not required to submit a short version of their paper as an 
extended abstract. They may simply send an email to Antonio Garrido 
(agarridot at dsic dot upv dot es) explaining that they wish to 
participate in the Doctoral Consortium. The title, author list, and 
abstract of the paper should be included. Such students will present 
their work at the Doctoral Consortium only if not scheduled for oral 
presentation at the main conference.

In addition, all applicants should submit their resume as a PDF file, 
together with a brief statement of at most two (2) pages describing 
their position in the doctoral process and an approximate outline of the 
thesis proposal.
