Ph.D. Forum, ACM MobiSys 2012
June 25, 2012
Low Wood Bay, Lake District, United Kingdom

In conjunction with ACM MobiSys 2012


Held in conjunction with 2012 ACM MobiSys, the Ph.D. 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 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 
Ph.D. to have a concrete dissertation proposal outlining the key 
challenges they plan to solve as well as the strategies and 
methodologies that are applicable.

2012 MobiSys Ph.D. Forum Best Speaker Award will be awarded to the best 
presentation at the Forum.


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, and initial results. Applicants should clearly identify their 
contributions to the field of mobile systems. Also, a clear delineation 
of prior work and proposed work will help the panel provide more useful 

* A short biographical sketch (1 page maximum) describing the applicants 
affiliations and research activities. This should include the date that 
the student expects to complete his or her dissertation.

Submissions should be sent in PDF format to [log in to unmask] If 
accepted, a student may be asked to provide explanations or 
clarification by the camera-ready deadline. Note that the submissions 
will not be formally published, but hardcopies will be made available to
