Call for Papers
Ph.D. Forum


IPSN 2014 - the 13th ACM/IEEE Int. Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Network (co-located with CPSWEEK 2014) - will host a Ph.D. Forum on Sensor Network Research. The Forum will provide an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their dissertation research, including work in progress, to the sensor network community and obtain individual feedback from leading researchers in the field. The Forum will be structured as a series of short presentations by the students, followed by individual discussions, feedback, and advise. Participating students will also have the opportunity to present a poster during the main conference to leverage further interaction with CPSWEEK attendees.

Current Ph.D. students in the early stages of their career are encouraged to submit a 2-page extended abstract about their dissertation research in sensor networking to be considered for the Ph.D. Forum. The abstract shall also include a one-paragraph bio of the student, along with information on how long he/she has been in Ph.D. school and the expected time until graduation. The student should be the sole author, although contributions of the advisor and others should be acknowledged. Submissions will be reviewed by the Ph.D. Forum committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the Forum. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate in person to the Forum and to present a poster both at the Forum and at the main conference. There will be no separate registration fee for the Forum.


The Ph.D. forum is part of  IPSN 2014. Details about the location and the rooms will be announced in due time.
