***** Call for Doctoral Symposium Papers *****


ICDCN 2021 will host a Doctoral Symposium to encourage Ph.D. students to present and discuss their research with peers in their fields. This symposium is best suited for students who already have a plan outlined for their dissertation in the broad areas of Distributed Computing and Computer Networking. The symposium will provide an opportunity for students to obtain helpful feedback on their research from academics and practitioners from leading universities and industries.

Due to the Coronavirus situation, the conference and thus the doctoral symposium will be held virtually. ICDCN will waive the registration fee for all students who will give a talk in the doctoral symposium.

PhD, MS, and BS students working in the following areas can submit their research proposals for this symposium. 

- 5G and Next-generation Networks and Services
- Ad-hoc, Sensor, PAN and Mesh Networks
- Backscatter and Ultra-low Power Networks
- Blockchains in Distributed Computing and Networking
- Cloud Computing and Big Data Processing
- Cognitive Networking
- Distributed Algorithms: Design, Analysis, and Complexity
- Distributed Embedded Systems
- Distributed Operating Systems and Database Systems
- Distributed Quantum Computing
- Edge Computing and Mobile Offloading
- Energy-efficient Networking
- Fault-tolerance, Reliability, and Availability of Distributed Systems
- Internet of Things and Cyber Physical Systems
- Internetworking Protocols & Internet Applications
- Machine Learning in Distributed Computing and Networking
- Mobile Crowdsensing and Social Networks
- Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networking
- Overlay and Peer-to-peer Networking and Services
- Pervasive and Mobile Computing
- Pricing and Network Economics
- Scalable Distributed Systems
- Security, Privacy and Game Theory in Distributed Computing and Networking
- Self-organization, Self-stabilization, and Autonomic Computing
- UAV Networks and Mobile Robots
- Vehicular Networks, Smart Grids and Smart City Applications


Those who are enrolled as a full-time student in a PhD program at any university as on date of submission of the proposal are eligible. PhD students with a well formulated problem and initial technical approach/results are particularly encouraged to apply as they would benefit from the feedback from the symposium. Although this forum is primarily targeted towards Ph.D. students, BS and MS students who have formulated a research project and obtained some good results will also be considered and hence are encouraged to apply.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions to the Doctoral Symposium should must include the following:

 - Research paper (1-2 pages)
 - Curriculum Vitae (1 page)
A submitted paper must not exceed 2-pages, including references, in the standard ACM format available here. A research paper must include a clear problem statement of the research, technical approaches for the problem, the novelty of the problem and/or the approaches, and the results obtained so far. The student author should be clearly indicated, and the advisor(s) should be listed as co-authors. Curriculum Vitae must contain the participant's name, affiliation, advisor's name, theme of research, degrees obtained so far, current status in their degree, and expected graduation date. All papers must be submitted in a PDF format through EasyChair. https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdcn2021

Symposium Details

All submissions will be reviewed, and the primary student author of the proposals that are accepted will have the opportunity to give an oral presentation (10-20 minutes) at ICDCN. No-show is not allowed, and will lead to the submission being withdrawn from the proceedings. The accepted submissions will be included in the ICDCN proceedings as a 2-page extended abstract.

Important Dates

Submission Deadline: September 21, 2020
Acceptance Notification: October 12, 2020
Camera-Ready Submission: October 20, 2020
