Call for Papers
As part of the 21st International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2015), we are inviting PhD and MSc students to apply for the Doctoral Programme (DP). The DP is an opportunity for students to meet each other as well as researchers and practitioners in the field. The spirit of the DP is that every interested student whose work is within the scope of the conference should be admitted.
Participation in the DP will involve:
Training to the reviewing process.
Presentation of the student work via both talk and poster.
Discussions with a mentor with similar research interests.
There are funds available to support some of the students participating in the DP. The financial support usually only covers conference registration, and will be assigned with regard to mainly the financial need of a student, as indicated in a request by an advisor, and then by the quality of the submitted paper, as measured by the review process of the DP. A request for financial support should be sent by Monday 15 June 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org by an advisor, detailing:
the advisor's support of the student's application; this should include a confirmation that the DP submission or a paper accepted at CP 2015 is primarily the student's work;
which years the student has previously been to the DP and/or received financial support;
the funding available for the student’s travel, accommodation, and registration, and the reason for requesting financial support.
It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that the advisor’s request is submitted by the deadline.
Paper submission deadline: Monday 15 June 2015 Wednesday 17 June 2015
Financial support request deadline: Monday 15 June 2015 Wednesday 17 June 2015
Notification: Monday 6 July 2015 Saturday 11 July 2015
Camera-ready version deadline: Monday 18 July 2015
Doctoral Programme: Monday 31 August 2015
The DP is open to all PhD and outstanding MSc students involved in Constraint Programming or related fields at any level. The submitted paper should contain work that is primarily the work of the student. It can either be completed or work in progress. It can also be a summary of a formally published recent paper on the student’s work.
Applicants are required to submit a short paper (from 4 to 8 pages, excluding references) in the Springer LNCS style, and the author list should specify who is the student and who are the advisors and other co-authors. Submissions are required to be in PDF format.
Students with full or short papers accepted at the CP 2015 conference, including technical track, application track, and published-journal-paper track papers, who wish to participate in the DP do not need to submit a separate paper for the DP. Instead, such students should email the DP chairs at email@example.com expressing their interest. This email should also include the paper title, abstract, author list (formatted as specified above), and the identifier that the accepted paper was given by EasyChair.
Training to the Reviewing Process
This year, the students submitting papers to the DP will participate in a training to the reviewing process. Each of the students will be assigned a submitted paper to review. The process will follow the same rules as conferences, but the reviews submitted by the students will be independent from the DP reviews received from other reviewers and will have no impact on the final acceptance or financial support decision.
