humanist list  at LISTS.PRINCETON.EDU.  If you  simply forward  it back  to the

Reminder: KR 2014 Doctoral Consortium - Call for Applications (Due 21 Feb 2014)

July 20-24, 2014
Vienna, Austria
http://www.kr.org/KR2014/

The 14th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR 2014) invites PhD students to apply for the Doctoral Consortium program.

Feb 21, 2014 : Deadline for application
March 28, 2014 : Acceptance notification July 20-24, 2014 : Doctoral Consortium

1) AIMS AND SCOPE

The Doctoral Consortium is a student mentoring program that introduces students to senior researchers with similar research interests. 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 intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who have sufficient time prior to completing their dissertation to benefit from the consortium experience. 

We encourage submissions from PhD students at any level, and from any topic area within Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.

A number of student grants will be available to support student participation. 

2) APPLICATION SUBMISSION

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, your 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 AAAI style (http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php).
* Curriculum Vitae: A description of your background and relevant experience (research, education, employment).
* Letter of recommendation: A letter from your thesis advisor that states that he/she supports your participation in the DC.
* (Optional) You can suggest 3-5 potential mentors with similar research interests as you, who could give you good advice on technical aspects of your work, and/or your career.
* (Optional) Specify 3 to 5 questions you would like to ask your mentor and give some keywords that describe you research interests

The most preferred way of submission is to combine the thesis summary and the letter of recommendation (and, optionally, the list of suggested mentors) into a single PDF document. If you cannot do that, archive the documents into a single zip file. In either case, the resulting single file has to be submitted via the EasyChair system at

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kr2014dc

        Subject: MLA CFP: Bibliography for the twenty-first century


 Title of session: Bibliography for the twenty-first century

 Bibliography has long been integral to literary studies, textual studies,
and book history. Not only does it serve an evidentiary purpose through
documentation of the consulted literature, as in an enumerative
bibliography, but it also reflects a rich scholarly enterprise in the form
of analytical or critical bibliographies. How, then, are scholars adapting
the study and documentation of material texts in the twenty-first century?
What affordances, opportunities, challenges, or obstacles are offered to
bibliography by digital transmission, transformation, and augmentation?
>From established databases like EEBO that provide access to facsimiles and
their bibliographic metadata, to library and scholarly projects that
document and annotate publishing and material histories -- among the many, The
Digital Walters  http://www.thedigitalwalters.org/ , Dime Novels & Penny
Dreadfuls  http://www-sul.stanford.edu/depts/dp/pennies/home.html , or the
expansion of the digital ESTC  http://ucrtoday.ucr.edu/19828   -- a range of
bibliographic projects are underway, and many more are being dreamed.

Submission requirements:250-word abstracts

Deadline for submissions: 15 March 2014
