Call for Doctoral Symposium Papers

The goal of the WF-IoT 2018 Doctoral Symposium is to provide a supportive setting in which PhD students can present and receive feedback on their work. Students at different stages in their research will be able to articulate and discuss their problem statement, goals, methods, and results. The symposium also aims to provide students with useful guidance on various aspects of their research from established researchers and the other student attendees. Finally, the symposium seeks to motivate students in the development of their scientific curiosity and facilitate their networking within the research community. The PhD symposium also aims to facilitate networking among researcher in the WF-IoT community and help students establish contacts for entering the job market. PhD Symposium attendance is open to all WF-IoT registrants.
