Ph.D. forum abstract submission deadline: April 16, 2020
Conference proceedings in IEEE Xplore
Intended for Ph.D. students at any stage of their research

The Ph.D. Forum at SMARTCOMP 2020 provides an opportunity for Ph.D.
students to present their work in progress to the scientific community
and obtain individual feedback from leading researchers in the field.
This forum is intended to provide doctoral students with a platform to
interact with established researchers from both academia and industry
and get useful guidance on the broader impacts of their research.

The Forum will be structured as a poster presentation session by the
students, followed by collective discussions. The student presentations
will be interleaved with speeches by leading researchers, who will
provide their own perspectives on current and future research in the
field, as well as on how to best pursue a Ph.D. in this context.

Current Ph.D. students at any stage of their career are encouraged to
submit a 2-page extended abstract about their research to be considered
for the Ph.D. Forum. The student should be the sole author, although
contributions of the advisor and others should be acknowledged.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Ph.D. Forum program committee to
ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the
Forum. There will be no separate registration fee for the Forum.
Participating students will only need to register to the main SMARTCOMP
conference. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate
in person to the Forum. The proceedings of the Forum will be included in
the proceedings of the main conference.

The committee is aware of the COVID-19 situation and considering all the
alternative options. We are considering to permit remote participation
presentation to the conference, postponing the conference to the autumn
or moving the conference to another location, in case unsafe travel
conditions to Italy still persist.
