Description and objectives:

In addition to the technical presentations, a special programme for PhD students will be held alongside the CP 2002 conference. Students will be able to present their work and receive feedback from more senior members of the community. In addition, there will be tutorials about research skills and career issues.

The CP 2002 doctoral programme has the following objectives: to provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants' current research and guidance on future research directions; to develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research; to support a new generation of researchers with information and advice on academic, research, industrial, and non-traditional career paths; to contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and participation in conference events.

Selection and benefits for accepted students :

On the basis of the submissions, the Organizing Committee has selected a group of students that have been invited to present their work during the Doctoral Programme, and also to present a poster at the CP-2002 poster session. We expect a commitment from all participating students to attend the entire doctoral programme. Students accepted for participation in the Doctoral Programme will receive complimentary conference registration and a fixed allowance for travel/housing. The students' abstracts are available on this web site. Moreover, a short version of the abstract (1 page) will be published in the conference proceedings, that will be published by Springer Verlag.
