*UMAP 2015 DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM CALL FOR PAPERS*

**

*ABOUT THE DOCTORAL CONSORTIU*M

Following a tradition started in 1994, the UMAP 2015 Conference will 
include a Doctoral Consortium Session whichprovides an unequalled 
opportunity for doctoral students to explore and develop their research 
interests under the guidance of a panel of distinguished research faculty.

The consortium format benefits students' learning about how to become 
better researchers, and better participants in the research community; 
academics benefit from seeing new directions, innovative ideas and novel 
techniques.

The doctoral consortium is implemented as a 'student mentoring' program 
that introduces students to senior researchers in the relevant fields.

Students are expected to document in a brief submission their doctoral 
research (see below described submission information for further 
details), which will be evaluated by the consortium committee.

·Good quality applications will be selected for presentation at a 
dedicated workshop as part of the conference.

·Promising, but less well-developed applications will be selected for 
presentation at a poster session.

Each student with an accepted application will be assigned a mentor who 
will provide feedback on the student's work and will discuss the 
doctoral research with the student and the audience at the consortium.

*TOPICS *

Topics include (but are not limited to) the areas listed on the UMAP

evaluation, User testing and validation)

*SUBMISSION INFORMATION *

To apply for the UMAP 2015 doctoral consortium, students are asked to 
submit an abstract (up to a max 6 pages) of their doctoral research that 
describes:

-the problem being addressed

-the motivation for addressing the problem

-the intended main contributions that the thesis aims to achieve

-the progress made to date (including a clear description of the 
proposed approach) and the plan of further research

In their submission, each DC contribution may wish to consider some of 
the following: indication of data to be used for experimentation, 
indication of implementation approach, indication of evaluation criteria 
and experimental design, identification of related (state of the art) 
work, indication of potential innovation, application or contribution 
for which the work is aimed.

Students should also identify the stage they are in the PhD programme, 
and a brief description of their background in order to enable the 
committee to adapt its assistance to each student.

Papers must be submitted via the UMAP Doctoral Consortium submission 
site by CLICKING HERE <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=umap15dc>

They must be formatted according to Springer's LNCS style guidelines 
Click Here <http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0>

The length of the abstract is limited to *maximum of*6 pages**.

*PROCEEDINGS *

Accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings, which 
will be published as a book by Springer.

*FINANCIAL SUPPORT *

Funding for selected students with accepted contributions may be 
available to cover some travel and accommodation expenses. More details 
will be provided on the conference web site as soon as funds will be 
available.

*IMPORTANT DATES*

Submission deadline: March 6th, 2015. (11:59pm Hawaii time)

Acceptance notifications: March 27th, 2015. (11:59pm Hawaii time)
