The EuroSys Doctoral Workshop (EuroDW 2017)

Important Dates

Submission by: February 13, 2017, 23:59 (UTC)
Notification of acceptance: March 3, 2017
Workshop date: April 23, 2017



The EuroSys Doctoral Workshop (EuroDW 2017) will provide a forum for PhD
students to present their work and receive constructive feedback from 
in the field as well as from peers. Technical presentations will be 
with general advice and discussions about getting a PhD, doing research, and
post-doctoral careers.

EuroDW 2017 will also offer the opportunity for what we call "mentoring
moments." The idea is to give graduate students a chance to talk one-on-one
(or, in some cases, one-on-two) about their research with outstanding
researchers beyond those available at the students' universities.

We seek applications from PhD students at any stage of their doctoral 
and in all areas of computer systems research. We expect most submissions to
be from current PhD students who have selected a clear research topic.
Research topics of interest include "systems" work in the broadest sense,
including work on formal foundations, as well as the design, implementation
and evaluation of real systems. Specifically, research topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

Big data analytics frameworks
Cloud computing and data center systems
Database systems
Dependable systems
Distributed systems
File and storage systems
Language support and runtime systems
Mobile and pervasive systems
Networked systems
Operating systems
Parallelism, concurrency, and multicore systems
Real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems
Secure systems, privacy and anonymity preserving systems
Tracing, analysis, and transformation of systems
Virtualization systems

Note: the workshop is not a venue for publication; there will be no 

Applicants will be divided into two groups: planners (Group A) and finishers
(Group B).

Planners are early-stage PhD students who are are focused on research
planning. For example, you may be surveying the literature to identify an
important unsolved problem, or investigating the feasibility of a possible
solution. At the workshop, planners will be expected to:

1. Give an "elevator pitch" presentation of your proposal. This is a short
    5-minute presentation, with only a couple of slides, identifying the
    problem that you are tackling, showing why it is important, and 
    possible solutions or directions.
2. Present a poster on your proposal.

Finishers are students who are close to finishing their thesis and are
thinking about how to write up their research. They may also be considering
post-doctoral career options. At the workshop, finishers will be 
expected to:

1. Give a 15-minute presentation on your research, in the style of a
    conference presentation. This will typically describe the problem, 
say why
    it matters, and present your solution along with some evaluation.
2. Present a poster on your research.

Submission Instructions

Submissions will receive written feedback from the PC, but the submission
process is very lightweight and the main purpose is to put together the
program and to match students with mentors.

Please submit the following materials together with the required information
to the online submission site at: http://eurodw17.hotcrp.com

Group A:

PhD research proposal (as a PDF file, in 2-column, single-spaced, 10pt 
and should be no longer than 2 pages including title, references, 
figures and
all other content).

Group B:

Your paper (PDF file) of your main contribution of your doctoral research
(alternatively technical report, under submission paper, or a draft article
should be OK -- any length, please mark the type of your submission)


Research statement (as a PDF file, should be no longer than 5 pages, 10pt
format, single column, including title, references, figures and all other

Applicants from both groups should include the following information in 
submission (for example, in the abstract of the submission form):

PhD advisor's name and affiliation
year when you started PhD
