THESSALONIKI, GREECE
NOVEMBER 24-26, 2010

INTRO
The PhD Forum is an opportunity for PhD students to present their ongoing dissertation and to discuss their research with experts in academia and industry. The PhD Forum will provide a friendly and supportive environment for doctoral students to present and discuss their dissertation research both with their peers and with a panel of experienced researchers. In addition to providing feedback and advice, the forum will provide an opportunity for students to network as well as to practice presenting their research clearly and concisely.
The PhD Forum will be held in the form of a workshop session which will start by short oral presentation of each student’s proposal (10 minutes) followed by a short discussion for identifying issues and prospects (10 minutes). The event will conclude with a roundtable discussion, in which panelists will have another opportunity to provide general suggestions and advice to the entire group.
ELIGIBILITY
This meeting is best suited to students who are far enough into their PhD research to have a dissertation proposal outlining the key challenges they plan to solve as well as the strategies and methodologies that are applicable (students within 1-2 years of dissertation completion and students who have completed their dissertation during 2009-2010).
Dissertation topics must be relevant to the INCoS-2010 topics.
