Apologies for cross-postings. 

ECIR 2012 is offering a mentoring program, which aims to help students networking with senior researchers during the conference by linking them up with appropriate people beforehand. 

Each student attending the conference will be assigned a senior researcher to discuss his or her PhD work/research/paper. 
All students with a paper, poster, or demo will be automatically assigned a mentor. Any other students attending ECIR 2012 may also request for a mentor. Students that do not have a paper, poster or demo, should sent an email to [log in to unmask] with their name, institution, and an abstract of their PhD work (300 words maximum), so that appropriate mentors are assigned to them. Requests should be sent at the latest by 18 March 2012. 

Mentors will have read the student paper, poster, and demo before the conference, which will be sent to them before the conference. Mentors and students will make contact at some point during the conference, so that to arrange for a meeting time to discuss the student research interests. Mentors will provide feedback on the student paper/PhD topic during one of the various coffee breaks and social events. Students may also have specific research issues that they wish to discuss. 

Any question, please send an email to Mounia Lalmas at [log in to unmask] .
