NetSys 2021 - The PhD Forum at the Networked Systems 2021



VenueLübeck, Germany Germany



Topics/Call fo Papers

The PhD Forum at the Networked Systems 2021 follows the tradition and
format of similar events at international conferences such as ICNP,
PerCom, or UbiComp. The aim is twofold. First, it should provide PhD
students in any phase of their career with an opportunity to discuss the
hidden secrets behind doing a PhD and general career advice – topics
that are rarely openly discussed (e.g., finding research problems,
managing your supervisor, …) - during the PhD Forum on Monday. Second,
it additionally provides PhD students the option to present their early
work as poster and to discuss it with experts to gain general technical
feedback during the Early Work Presentation taking place at the main
conference. Beyond, attending 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.
*What can I Expect?*
*PhD Forum: The hidden secrets when doing your PhD*
This is a dedicated meeting on Monday before the main conference, full
of discussions and fun with your direct peers and us. The aim of the PhD
Forum is the discussion of meta aspects and experiences regarding a PhD
– the hidden secrets when doing your PhD and general career advice.
Potential topics will be:
- Deep PhD study in the time of digital distraction
- Having a family + doing a PhD – are you crazy?
- Continuously improving my skills: e.g., speed reading and ultra learning
- Doctoral supervision: being supervised and being a supervisor
- Best paper stories: targeting high and being rejected
- Academic peer review: what are factors that determine paper acceptance
/ rejection and why are some of them random?
- How dare you to steal my contributions?! Working in teams and writing
a PhD thesis
- Working internationally
- Becoming a team leader and how to find good students
- Hints on writing papers and making presentations – please don’t overload
To tailor the discussion of meta aspects to your interest, attendance
requires the submission of input in advance (e.g., questions on which we
will organize the day) mentioned in the call below.
As done at NetSys 2019, we will also invite keynote speakers who will
report about their research journey from a PhD student to a leading expert.
Early Work Poster Presentation:
In addition to the PhD Forum, an early work poster presentation of selected participants will take place during a poster session at the main conference. A brief introduction of the topics (One-Minute-Madness) during the main conference program is used to attract attention of conference participants to this early work poster session.
The PhD Forum + Early Work Poster Presentation are special opportunities to discuss research plans and results face-to-face with professors and senior researchers in individual groups outside the own lab.
