Call for papers
SCAI 2013 Doctoral Symposium
November 20, 2013
SCAI 2013, the 12th Scandinavian Conference on Artificial Intelligence, invites PhD students to submit extended abstracts on their doctoral research. The Symposium provides an opportunity for PhD students to present, discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with their peers and with a panel of senior researchers.
The symposium will constitute a special session of the SCAI conference event, where students of accepted abstracts will be invited to give a presentation in front of a group of peers and a small panel of established AI researchers who can provide constructive feedback.
Students are invited to submit a 4-page extended abstract of their on-going research from all areas of Artificial Intelligence. Submissions should have emphasis on work in progress, with directions for future research clearly indicated. It should be clearly stated what is the problem being addressed, the current research plan and the progress so far. The symposium is open to students at any stage of their PhD studies, but we expect that applicants with one year or more of research work will benefit the most from the event.
Accepted abstracts will be selected based on clarity of the submission, stage of
research, and evidence of promise such as published papers or technical reports.
The accepted student abstracts will be included in the SCAI 2013 proceedings published by IOS Press.
All students attending SCAI are encouraged to attend and participate in the Symposium.
The critiques of the faculty panel are expected to be beneficial to the whole student audience.
All submissions must be written in English. Abstracts may be up to 4 pages and must be formatted following the IOS formatting instructions available at
In addition to the extended abstract there should be included in the submission a cover sheet stating the author’s name, institution, supervisor’s name and email address, program start date, expected graduation date, and 2-5 keywords describing the work, as well as a list of already existing publications connected to the PhD research.
Submissions should be sent by email to
