The DC is designed for students currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, though we are also open to exceptions (e.g., students currently in a Master's program and interested in doctoral studies). Students at any stage in their doctoral studies are encouraged to apply for participation in the DC. Applicants are expected to conduct research in areas related to logic and constraint programming; topics of interest include (but are not limited to): Submissions by students who have presented their work at previous ICLP DC editions are allowed, but should occur only if there are substantial changes or improvements to the student's work. The DC offers participants a convenient, more informal way to interact with established researchers and fellow students, through presentations, question-answer sessions, panel discussions, and invited presentations. The Doctoral Consortium will also provide the possibility to reflect - through short activities, information sessions, and discussions - on the process and lessons of research and life in academia. Each participant will give a short, critiqued, research presentation.


Renowned experts and researchers in the fields of logic and constraint programming will join in evaluating submissions and will participate in the DC, providing valuable feedback to DC participants.
