PhD Forum has been a regular event of the IEEE ICNP conference for the
past few years. This forum is intended for both doctoral students
who are starting their PhD and those who are towards the end of their
dissertation to discuss their work. This is a full day event which will include
- a keynote talk by Dr. Theo Benson, Duke University
- short oral presentations by PhD students about their work
- panel discussion by senior researchers on the topic of “Current Challenges and Future Directions in Networking” .
year: Each student, whose paper is accepted to the PhD Forum,
will be expected to present their work in a short talk at the PhD Forum
as well as present their work in a poster at the main ICNP
Conference.This will enable you to discuss your work and interact with
all of the ICNP conference attendees and the PhD Forum attendees.
The topics of interest coincide with ICNP 2014 (http://icnp14.cs.unc.edu/cfp.html). They include, but are not limited to:
aspects of network protocol research including design, specification,
verification, implementation, measurement, testing, and analysis.
- Domain-specific solutions including protocols for network security, routing, user privacy, and network management.
- Application-layer protocols for peer-to-peer systems, social networks, and emerging systems.
to ICN architectures, specific algorithms and protocols, as well as
results from implementations and experimentations.
WHY SHOULD I
- Special opportunity to discuss research plans and results face-to-face
with professors and senior researchers
- Inspiring Keynote talk and Panel
- Publication of accepted papers in the IEEE ICNP proceedings and submitted
for inclusion in IEEE Xplore.
- Selected presentations will be invited to give a pitch talk at the main conference.
- PhD best paper award
HOW TO SUBMIT
are invited to submit extended abstracts of up to 4 pages, in IEEE
conference proceedings format (2-columns). All submissions will be
reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Submissions will be handled via EDAS and should include:
- A summary of the students’ dissertation research (up to 3 pages) including
a brief discussion of motivation, challenges, related work, and initial
results. Students should clearly highlight the problem they address and
identify their contributions to the field of networking protocols
design and analysis.
- A biographical sketch (1 page) describing
the students’ affiliations and research activities, as well as the date
that the student expects to complete his/her dissertation.
