The PhD colloquium will be held as part of the 21st International Conference on Modelling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems to be held in Montreal, Canada November, 2018. The colloquium serves as a forum for young researchers to present their research work in a friendly and supportive environment, to gain feedback and advice from established researchers in the field. The forum provides an opportunity for researchers at all stages of their research education to be able to discuss and explore their topics, approach and methodology; to network and start building valuable connections with both experienced researchers as well as fellow students for their future research career.
Students with accepted presentations will be able to present their work in a plenary forum as well as presenting a poster in the poster session of the main MSWIM event. Presenters at the colloquium will register for the main MSWIM event and thereby also have access to the main conference as well as the satellite symposia and workshops.
Submissions will be reviewed by a committee of experienced researchers who will judge the maturity of the project account to ascertain that the presented work is at a stage ready to stimulate discussions and feedback. The work should e at a level mature enough to become the major component of a PhD dissertation.
Submissions should be limited to four pages in length using the ACM format. A template for ACM SIG Proceedings style (LaTeX2e and MS Word) can be found here. They should include a title, abstract, student name and affiliation before detailing the context and background of the topic, an account why the topic is important, novel and interesting to pursue, the progress thus far, approach and methodology of the proposed research. Submissions will be made through the EDAS system. Accepted contributions will be published in the poster section of the proceedings.
Paper submission deadline: June 20th, 2018
