Application Information



Students interested in attending should assemble the following application packet into one pdf document and submit it through Easychair

Students at both the PhD and late stage masters level are encouraged to apply. However, preference will be given to students in PhD programs.

Students will be selected based on the assessment of the organizing committee. We will give preference to students who have settled on a research topic or direction but still have some way to go in their studies. Applications will be reviewed based on several factors including the quality of the work submitted, stage of research, evidence of research progress, the committee's assessment of the student's contribution to and benefit from participating in the DC, and input from the student's advisor.
