Call for Contribution

Call for PhD Forum Contributions (pdf)

In 2009, MDM launched a new event – the Ph.D. Forum. This forum provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their dissertation research, including work in progress, to the mobile data, service, middleware, system, and networking community. We are continuing this successful forum in MDM 2010 as well. The Forum will be organized as a poster session to encourage interaction between Ph.D. students and researchers from academia, Industry, and government. Extended abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings (subject to approval by the proceedings publisher).

Current Ph.D. students, as well as researchers who completed their Ph.D. dissertations since July 2009, are encouraged to submit extended abstracts. The Ph.D. student should be the sole author, although contributions of the advisor and others may be acknowledged in the extended abstract. Submissions will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to travel to MDM 2010 to present a poster at the Ph.D. Forum. To foster participations of the young generation to the main MDM events, a special student rate for conference registration will be applied to the authors of the accepted submissions. In addition, a number of best poster awards will be given to the most innovative idea and the most interesting work presented at the Ph.D. Forum.
