Call for Doctoral Symposium

ICDCN 2022 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.


Ph.D. 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


   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 Ph.D. program at any
university as on date of submission of the proposal are eligible. Ph.D.
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

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 without approval from chairs
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.

ICDCN will waive the registration fee for all students who will give a talk
in the doctoral symposium.

Submission Deadline: September 7, 2021

Acceptance Notification: October 5, 2021

Camera-Ready Submission: October 15, 2021

Event Date: TBD. (One day during January 4-7, 2022)
