Call for PhD Forum

IPSN 2024 will host a Ph.D. Forum on networked embedded sensing, control, and system design. This Ph.D. Forum will offer the following:

  • A constructive environment for doctoral students to discuss their ongoing work towards the Ph.D. with a panel of experienced researchers in the field.
  • An opportunity for the participants to initiate a personal network with both other Ph.D. students and leading research experts, outside of their own group.

This Ph.D. Forum will be structured as a series of short presentations by doctoral students, followed by individual discussions and feedback. The panelists will also offer their experience and advice on how to carry out a successful Ph.D. thesis and start a career as a researcher.

Students in the middle stages of their Ph.D. (e.g., no less than six months after starting, and no less than six months before finishing) are encouraged to submit a 2-page Extended Abstract about their research. While this Ph.D. Forum is primarily a venue to present ongoing rather than completed work, in this Extended Abstract, the Ph.D. thesis statement should be clearly identified including the problem addressed, the contribution expected to the field, the methodology chosen, the results achieved so far, and the work planned ahead. In addition, this Extended Abstract should include a short paragraph with information on how long the Ph.D. student has been in the Ph.D. program, the expected timeline toward graduation, and the name of their supervisor(s). The student should be the sole author although the contributions of others (e.g., the advisor) should be acknowledged.
