MobiSys 2016: PhD Forum (June 26th, 2016)

The PhD Forum provides a friendly and supportive environment for doctoral students to present and discuss their dissertation research both with their peers and with a panel of experienced researchers from academia and industry. In addition to providing feedback and advice, this forum will provide an excellent opportunity for students to network as well as to practice presenting their research clearly and concisely.

This meeting is best suited to students who are far enough into their PhD to have a concrete dissertation proposal outlining the key challenges they plan to solve as well as the strategies and methodologies that are applicable. Furthermore, participants should not plan to finish their dissertation within 6 months of the forum, as that would leave little time to include advice and suggestions into their work.


We will award $1000 to the Best Presentation(s), sponsored by Google.
Ph.D. Forum students can apply for travel grants to attend the Forum.
