Computing and Computer Networking. This forum will provide 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.
The Ph.D. Forum will be an event consisting of short student
presentations followed by poster presentations. Each participant will be
allowed 5 minutes to make a short presentation. Thereafter, all
participants will maker poster presentations.
