PhD Forum

Due to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemics IEEE WoWMoM 2021 will be fully virtual.
Paper submission to the PhD Forum is now CLOSED.

IEEE WoWMoM 2021 will host a PhD Forum where students will be able to present their dissertation research, recently finished or still ongoing, in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems. The forum encourages interaction among PhD students and provides them with a valuable opportunity to obtain feedback from senior researchers. The event will be organized as a poster session and will include a pitch by each student.


The author must be a PhD student in the middle stages of their Ph.D. (no less than six months after starting, and no less than six months before finishing). The student should be the sole author, although contributions of others (e.g., the advisor) should be acknowledged. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend the PhD forum at WoWMoM 2021 and present their work through a poster there.
