AAAI/SIGAI Doctoral Consortium
AAAI and ACM/SIGAI co-organize annually the AAAI/SIGAI Doctoral Consortium. The Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides an opportunity for a group of Ph.D. students to discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with a panel of established researchers in artificial intelligence. The consortium has the following objectives: (1) to provide a setting for feedback on participants' current research and guidance on future research directions; (2) support the next generation of researchers with information and advice on academic, research, industrial, and non-traditional career paths; (3) encourage a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research; and (4) support students in contributing to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and participation in conference events.
The Doctoral Consortium is held as a workshop before the AAAI Conference. Student participants in the Doctoral Consortium receive complimentary conference registration and a fixed allowance for travel/housing.
