IEEE International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2023) Doctoral 

*** Call for Participants ***

The IEEE International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB’23) Doctoral 
Consortium provides a valuable platform for Ph.D. students to engage 
with the global research community in Biometrics, allowing them to 
present their research and discuss their career objectives. This 
consortium offers an opportunity for doctoral students to establish 
connections and collaborations with experienced researchers in the 
field, while gaining insights into potential career paths in both 
academia and industry.

The IJCB’23 Doctoral Consortium (DC) will take place during the 
conference as a parallel event to special sessions on the first day of 
the conference. Attendance to the consortium is strictly by invitation. 
An informal introduction by senior researchers acting as mentors will 
open the DC. Afterwards, student participants will briefly present their 
research during a spotlight oral session. This will be followed by a 
mentoring session, providing students with an opportunity for 
constructive feedback and more focused discussions with senior 
researchers. Additionally, each student will be assigned a mentor from 
the committee, with whom they can interact to explore specific areas of 
interest throughout the event. An informal lunch with senior researchers 
will also be organized, enabling students to engage in interactive 
conversations. DC participants will also have the opportunity to 
participate in a poster session during the main conference (specific 
details to be determined).

*** Eligibility ***

We invite eligible students to apply for the Doctoral Consortium, with 
the expectation that successful applicants will actively participate in 
the entire program in-person.

Eligible students are those pursuing a Ph.D. who have made progress in 
their dissertation, with some results already published or nearing 
publication. We value diversity and equality in terms of research 
topics, participating institutions, and individuals involved. We 
particularly encourage women and individuals from underrepresented 
groups to apply. Although having a paper appearing in IJCB’23 is not a 
prerequisite for participation, it is highly encouraged for applicants 
to have a paper associated with the conference, whose topics could be 
summarized during the DC.

*** Submission ***

To apply for the Doctoral Consortium, please submit:
1. A research statement summarizing the thesis research topic, the 
working plan, and the progress to date (max 2 pages).
2. A CV (max 1 page). The CV should highlight any publications and 
conference presentations that are related to the thesis topic.
3. A supporting letter from the thesis advisor that endorses the 
student’s application to this Doctoral Consortium and briefly describes 
the progress or status of the student’s thesis work.

All materials should be prepared in a single PDF file and submitted 
through the Doctoral Consortium Track of the IJCB 2023 CMT instance: 
https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/IJCB2023/ .

*** Review and Selection Process ***

Applications will be evaluated on:

1. Quality of the application and thesis topic.
2. Anticipated benefits (current/potential contributions to science) of 
the student’s research.
3. Student’s contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds, 
methodology, etc.
4. Endorsement by the thesis advisor.

There will be no papers published from the Doctoral Consortium in the 
proceedings of IJCB.

*** Financial Support ***

The students selected to participate in the Doctoral Consortium may be 
considered for financial support. However, the availability and extent 
of financial support are subject to the availability of funds and are 
not guaranteed. Applicants should be prepared to attend IJCB’23 without 
financial support in the event that funds are not available. It is 
important to note that the lunch session with senior mentors will be 
fully covered by the conference anyway, and no expenses associated with 
lunch will be incurred by the Doctoral Consortium participants or mentors.

*** Important Dates ***

• Submission deadline: July 26, 2023
• Notification of acceptance: August 7, 2023
• Doctoral consortium date: TBD
