PhD Students Forum

The PhD forum provides an opportunity for research students to showcase their original yet incomplete ‘work-in-progress’.
As a separate track of ISNCC, the PhD Forum has four goals: (1) to provide constructive feedback and guidance to doctoral students who are performing their dissertation research; (2) to help students aligning their research interests with the hottest topics of the scientific community; (3) to develop a supportive community of researchers and potential collaborators; (4) to help doctoral students interact with established researchers and practitioners in their field.

The forum encourages authors to hold live and/or interactive demonstrations as part of their  presentations.


Original submissions are invited for ISNCC 2018 PhD Student Forum in the broad areas presented in the Call For Papers section. Authors must submit a ONE-page extended abstract, OR 2-4 pages short paper using EDAS. The abstract should describe the main motivation and results in sufficient detail to allow the reviewers to assess the potential contribution of the work. The abstracts and short papers should be in two-column format. A set of 5-7 keywords should accompany the abstract . The abstracts and the short papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and the authors would not need to sign the IEEE copyright form. They will be reviewed by the Forum Chairs and only selected work can be presented in the conference. However, the selected abstracts and papers will not appear in IEEE-Xplore. Submitted abstracts should be unpublished and not under review for any other publication and if selected the authors must present their work at the conference.
