Doctoral Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (SDIA)

EPIA'19 invites submissions to the Doctoral Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, SDIA. The goal of this symposium is to provide an informal environment where students in early stages of their doctoral research can present their main ideas and discuss them with other students and the senior scientific community. The main advantages of SDIA-19 are three-fold:  

  • Students obtain feedback from the scientific community, in a early stage of the doctoral research.
  • To give students the opportunity to present their work in an informal environment, as a preparation to future presentations in international workshops and conferences.
  • Students have the opportunity to know the work of other students that are in the same stage of doctorial work and that have similar research interests.

SDIA is promoted by APPIA – Associação Portuguesa para a Inteligência Artificial (Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence), and it aims at improving the quality of Ph.D. thesis in Artificial Intelligence.
