		       Call for Application
                       September 16 - 19, 2008

The 11th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge
Representation and Reasoning (KR2008) invites PhD students to apply
for the Doctoral Consortium program. The aims of the consortium are:
- to provide a forum for students to present their current research,
    and receive feedback from other students and senior researchers;
- to promote contacts among PhD students working in similar areas;
- to support students with information and advice on academic,
    research and industrial careers;
The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that introduces
students to senior researchers with similar interests. Students
accepted into the Doctoral Consortium are waived registration fee for
KR2008 and present their work during a poster session. They can
apply for a scholarship that partly covers their travel expenses.
We encourage submissions from PhD students at any level, and from any
topic area within Knowledge Representation and Reasoning. Applications
must be submitted via our online submission site (see below).
Each application must contain the following materials:
- Thesis summary. A description of the problem being addressed, the
    motivation for addressing the problem, proposed plan of research, the
    progress to date (what you have already achieved and what remains to
    be done), and related work. It must be four pages maximum in the usual
    KR double-column style.
- Letter of recommendation. A letter from your thesis advisor that states
    that (s)he supports your participation in the DC.
May 1, 2008            Deadline for application
May 25, 2008           Acceptance notification
September 16-19, 2008  Doctoral consortium
Application Submission
The most preferred way of submission is to combine the thesis summary
and letter of recommendation into a single PDF or postscript document.
If you cannot do that, archive the two documents into a single zip
file. In either case, the resulting single file has to be submitted
via the EasyChair system at
