The Mentoring Lunch at the International Semantic Web Conference brings together graduate students and early-career researchers with experienced researchers from both, industry and academia for a lively discussion and question-answering session on a variety of topics. If you are a PhD student, a postdoc, or have just started an independent research career and would like to get advice on any of the round-table topics listed below, please join us at the specially designated tables during a lunch break on October 10th, 2018.
The mentors are all volunteers from the speakers, chairs, and other senior participants at the conference (see below the list of mentors).
If you would like to get advice from mentors, please sign up for lunch using the link Register for Mentoring Lunch and answer a few quick questions that would help us with the organisation of the lunch. We might be limited by the room capacity and by the number of mentors, so the first people to sign up will be automatically added to the list of attendees, the rest will be put on the waiting list. The registration is open and the last date to register is September 30th, 2018 (extended).
While we are organising only the mentoring lunch, we expect that some of you might want to have a more sustained relationship with the mentors and we invite you to ask the mentors at lunch about such a possibility.
If you have questions and suggestions, please feel free to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
