The International Conference on Networked Systems

Call for PhD forum

International Conference on Networked Systems 2017

March 13-16, 2017 – Göttingen, Germany


The doctoral colloquium at the Networked Systems 2017 follows the tradition and format of similar events at international conferences such as PerCom, UbiComp, and Pervasive. The aim is twofold. First, it should provide PhD students in an early phase of their career with an opportunity to discuss their topics with experts and gain general feedback as well as specific comments on their proposal. Second, the PhD Forum is an excellent opportunity for young researchers to start a personal network with other PhD students as well as with already established experts.


The aim of the doctoral colloquium is to discuss research topics and PhD projects at different stages (early to senior). The PhD forum involves the discussion of meta aspects and experiences in course of a PhD. In addition to the colloquium a presentation of all participants at the main conference will take place as a poster session. A brief introduction of the topics (One-Minute-Madness) is used to attract conference participants.


Prospective participants are required to submit their application documents HERE

  • Research Statement: a two-page abstract (IEEE, at least 10pt font, 2-column format) that sketches the research proposal of the PhD student, the contribution to knowledge and how the research will advance the state of the art. The research proposal will not appear in the official conference proposal but is planned to be published on the conference web page.
  • Curriculum Vitae: a brief CV that lists the education, research interests and – if available – publications.

In addition, a poster has to be presented at the main conference in a special PhD poster session.
