Call for Extended Abstracts – PhD Forum

The second WoWMoM PhD Forum will be hosted at the Eleventh International Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (WoWMoM 2010). 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 2010 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.
