Call for PhD Forum Extended Abstracts PhD Forum

The third PhD Forum on Wireless and Multimedia Networks hosted at 12th International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM 2011). Doctoral students working in areas related to wireless, mobile and multimedia networking are solicited to submit an extended abstract comprising a summary of their research findings, work in progress and planned research. The forum will be a platform for PhD students to interact both with their peers as well as experienced researchers from industry. The forum will be organized as a poster session and will include a ‘1-minute madness’ introduction by each student.

Current Ph.D. students 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 attend WoWMoM 2011 and present their poster at the PhD Forum. The best presentation at the Forum will receive a sponsored award, and there is likely to be travel assistance for some students. Accepted extended abstracts will appear in conference proceedings.

Extended Abstract Submission: Ph.D. students are invited to submit two-page extended abstracts that describe current research and potential contributions to theory and innovation in mobile and wireless computing/communications, multimedia on mobile networks and closely related areas. Submissions must be received by no later than March 25, 2011. Extended abstracts should include the author's name, affiliation, and email address. There will be a prize for the best PhD Forum extended abstract. Submissions must be PDF files, written in English.

IEEE Computer Society author guidelines: The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE Computer Society website. Submissions should adhere to the IEEE format and be no more than two pages in length (all inclusive). Abstracts must be submitted on EDAS.
