The First Doctoral Workshop
2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on
Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology
This one-day doctoral workshop will have a strong focus on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, and covers some recent and trendy topics and applications. During the Workshop, doctoral students will be invited to share their current thesis work-in-progress with their peers and with an international panel of academic staff.
The aims of the Doctoral Workshop include:
|−||To provide an opportunity for research/graduate students to interact closely with established researchers in their fields, receive feedback on their work and get advice on managing their careers.|
|−||To present the ongoing doctoral projects and discuss possibilities of development for new ones.|
|−||To provide a forum for interaction between students/young researchers from different countries and following different programmes. To stimulate interchange of ideas and knowledge between them in an attempt to broaden and enrich their pursuit for scientific excellence in the area of WI-IAT.|
|−||To discuss on challenging problems and larger projects in different countries, and potential commercial projects.|
Much effort will be devoted to bringing together in one place both rookie and experienced researchers, and to stimulating a vivid discussion and exchange of ideas. Several established researchers in the areas of WI and IAT will be invited to participate and discuss with younger colleagues.
The workshop will consist of several presentations by contributing authors. The lenght and distribution of presentations will depend on number and topics of contributions. The organisers plan to provide sufficient amount of time for questions as well as formal and informal discussion.
As the Doctoral Workshop at the 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'08) is the first of its kind, both organisers and participants will be able to collect new experiences. We strongly believe that by providing this platform for exchange of knowledge between young researchers it will be possible to give them strong feeling that the participation in WI-IAT'08 has contributed to their personal development. It is also an opportunity for documenting the progress of one's work in a way that is widely recognised.
|Proceedings and Post-workshop Publications|
