MobiSys 2017: PhD Forum (June 19, 2017)

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 workshop 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 ideally be more than 6 months away from finishing their dissertation, otherwise that would leave little time to incorporate any advice or suggestions into their work.


Thanks to the generosity of Google, we will award a prize to the best presenter(s), and travel grants may be available.
