Call For Papers

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.

The forum will be a one-day event consisting of short student presentations, discussion, and a roundtable discussion. Each participant will have time allotted for a short presentation as well as an in-depth and constructive discussion led by the panel. In order to allow adequate time for each presentation, we will limit the number of participants to 10 presenters.

The event will conclude with a roundtable discussion, in which panelists will have another opportunity to provide general suggestions and advice to the entire group.

Submissions should consist of the following:

An extended abstract of the student's dissertation research (up to 2 pages) including a brief discussion of motivation, challenges, related work, initial results, and references. Applicants should clearly identify their contributions to the field of mobile systems. Also, it is recommended to clearly delineate the student's prior work and cite them; this will help the reviewers and the panel to make better judgment of technical contributions and provide more useful suggestions.
A short biographical sketch (1 page max) describing the applicants affiliations and research activities. This should include the date that the student expects to complete his/her dissertation.
The submission format should be used by the same format of MobiSys conference. Please visit here for detail. Submissions MUST be no more than two (2) pages. This length includes everything: figures, tables, references, appendices and so forth.
Please register and submit your paper using the submission system.
There may be some travel grants from NSF and SIGMOBILE to attend PhD Forum.
Submissions will be handled via email: mobisys15.phd.forum@gmail.com

If accepted, a student may be asked to provide explanations or clarification by the camera-ready deadline.
