The IFIP WG 9.4 PhD Day is a one-day Workshop (the day prior to the IFIP WG 9.4 conference) open to early research talents who would like to discuss and get feedback on their research project, based on a PhD project status report, from senior researchers and other early stage researchers. The PhD Day will be organized in workgroup sessions to discuss each students PhD project as well as one plenary keynote session with discussions.
The PhD Day is not a separate IFIP WG 9.4 Track, but the organizers offer a preliminary round of review of extended abstracts (4 pages) so that researchers at an early stage in their career can get constructive feedback on their paper ideas and recommendations about which of the 9.4 thematic tracks to target.
On-site PhD-day Agenda
The main aims of the workshop are:
- Give constructive feedback to the ongoing work of PhD students
