                           LPNMR Doctoral Student Consortium
                 to be held at Hanasaari Conference Center, Espoo, Finland, 
                             Extact date to be confirmed
                                   July 3-6, 2017


The LPNMR Doctoral Consortium (DC) is to be held as part of the 14th  
International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning 
(LPNMR 2017) in the Hanasaari Conference Center, Espoo, Finland,July 3-6, 2017. 
The DC will take place during LPNMR 2017 on a date to be determined. The DC 
provides a forum for doctoral students working in all areas related to logic 
programming and non monotonic reasoning. The DC gives students the opportunity 
to present and discuss their research and to obtain feedback from peers as well 
as world-renowned experts a supportive environment. 

The 14th International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic 
Reasoning (LPNMR) is a forum for exchanging ideas on declarative logic 
programming, non-monotonic reasoning, and knowledge representation. The aim of 
the conference is to facilitate interactions between researchers and 
practitioners interested in the design, implementation and application of 
logic-based programming languages and database systems, and those who work in 
the area of knowledge representation and non-monotonic reasoning. LPNMR and its 
programmatic expression, Answer Set Programming, have roots in the famous 
special issue of AIJ in 1980, devoted to Nonmonotonic Reasoning.

During the DC, there will be significant time for students to present their 
work, and meet mentors from their own and closely related fields.

** Target Audience **

The DC is designed for students currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, though 
we are also open to exceptions (e.g., students currently in a Master's program 
and interested in doctoral studies). Students at any stage in their doctoral 
studies are encouraged to apply for participation in the DC, but preference 
will be given to students who have settled on a research topic or direction but 
still have some way to go in their studies.

Applicants are expected to conduct research in areas related to logic and 
constraint programming; topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    - Theoretical Foundations of LPNMR systems, including semantics of new or 
existing languages, new language extensions, and computational complexity
    - Implementation of LPNMR systems, including new systems and algorithms
    - Applications of LPNMR

The DC allows participants to interact with established researchers and fellow 
students, through presentations, a poster session, question-answer sessions and 
social interactions. The Doctoral Consortium will provide the possibility to 
reflect - through short activities, information sessions, and discussions - on 
the process and lessons of research and life in academia. Each participant will 
give a short, critiqued, research presentation, present a poster at the main 
event and attend a lunch in small groups with their mentor/senior researcher.

** Application Process **

An application for participation in the LPNMR DC 2017 consists of a cover 
sheet, an extended abstract  of your (intended) research, a vita, a personal 
statement and a letter of recommendation (e.g., from your supervisor). All 
applications must be in English and submitted electronically via EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lpnmrdc2017) by 4 April 2017. Detailed 
submission instructions are provided at the LPNMR DC 2017 website:


Applications will be reviewed based on several factors including the quality of 
the work submitted, stage of research, evidence of research progress, the 
committee's assessment of the student's contribution to and benefit from 
participating in the DC, and input from the student's advisor.

Details regarding publication of extended abstracts and financial support will 
follow at a later date.
