M.Sc./PhD Forum

M.Sc./PhD Forum Submission

IEEE ICM 2016 will include a M.Sc./Ph.D. Forum. The M.Sc./Ph.D. Forum provides an opportunity for masters and Ph.D. students in the fields of electronics, circuits, and embedded systems to present their dissertation research, including work in progress, to an internationally renowned audience of researchers and developers. The topics of interest are the same as those of the main IEEE ICM 2016 conference. To encourage interaction between the M.Sc./Ph.D. students and researchers from academia, industry, and government, the Forum will be mainly organized as a poster session. A two-page position papers on the thesis work will appear in the conference proceedings (but will not appear on IEEE Xplore).

Current M.Sc./Ph.D. students, as well as researchers who completed their M.Sc./Ph.D. dissertations in the last year (that is, since December 2015), are encouraged to submit two-page papers. The submitted paper should clearly state:

›› The original key idea / hypothesis of the thesis
›› The problem domain and the specific problem addressed
›› An overview of related work in the area of the Ph.D. work
›› Methodological approach
›› Research that has been carried out
›› The expected or achieved contributions

Since this is expected to be a work conducted by the PhD students, we request that the sole author is a PhD student who is mainly responsible for conducting the research on the respective topic. In addition, the name of the advisor should appear, preceded by “Advisor:”

The main objective of the PhD Forum is to offer an opportunity to the PhD students to receive high-quality feedback from external reviewers and to directly interact with peers, exchange ideas, discuss concepts, and establish (in) formal cooperation with various research groups.

The best two presenters among the MSc students group and the best two presenters among the students PhD group will be awarded with a monetary prizes and certificates from IEEE ICM 2016 conference.
