International Doctoral Symposium for Students of Artificial Intelligence (ZJULogAI 2020)


The 6th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence (GCAI 2020) will be held in Hangzhou, China, 6-9 April 2020, as part of the International Conferences on Logics in Artificial Intelligence at Zhejiang University (ZJULogAI). The first day of the conference has been set aside for tutorials and a doctoral symposium. The organizers are now calling for participation of PhD students at the doctoral symposium.

The goal of the International Doctoral Symposium for Students of Artificial Intelligence is twofold: On one hand, it offers training sessions on topics and skills that may be useful to future researchers and professionals of artificial intelligence. On the other hand, it aims to provide a chance to share research interests and results of PhD students in the area of artificial intelligence. To achieve these, one senior PhD supervisor will deliver a talk, sharing advice and experience of doing research in artificial intelligence. Each PhD student will then be given 5 minutes to give a short presentation introducing himself/herself and his/her research topic (no details of any work done – just the topic area and the problem being attacked). Then the students will then work in groups with similar interests, for round table discussion, followed by group presentations. Senior faculty will be there to provide feedback, to help students progress effectively with their research.


Presentations should be submitted by email to the following email address:

and include the following information:

+ Name(s) and affiliation(s) of the PhD student(s)
+ Title/ topic of the presentation
+ Any special resources that would be needed
