Call for PhD Forum and Posters Track

The PhD forum and posters track will take place as part of the 2015 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2015), in Paris France.

This forum will provide graduate students (e.g., PhD students, pre-doctoral students and Master leading to PhD students) and researchers with an opportunity to share, present, explore, develop their research ideas, and to receive feedback from the research community that will help them in further developing and progressing in their PhD studies. This will help students as prospective candidates to connect up with senior researchers participating in the conference. It will also stimulate collaborations between students with similar research interests.

This forum is intended for students at any stage of their PhD work. All submissions will be thoroughly reviewed by experts in the field and will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Further, authors should certify that their submissions contain substantially new and previously unpublished research. Students will be given an opportunity to present their proposals and get feedback and advice on how to improve their research plan.

Submission

We welcome submissions of research ideas that are mature enough to be presented and whose content can evolve to become the substantial part of a PhD dissertation. Reports on PhD dissertations and work in progress towards their dissertation should address research issues, challenges, and originality. Submissions should clearly describe the problem, explain its importance, detail why existing solutions are not sufficient, and give an outline of proposed solutions and preliminary experimental evaluation. Submissions should be written in English and pertaining to the topics mentioned in the Call For Paper page for the ASONAM 2015 conference.

Three categories of submissions will be accepted:

  • Full papers up to 8 pages,
  • Short communications up to 4 pages,
  • Extended abstracts for posters up to 2 pages,

All papers must be in IEEE two-columns format.

Submissions should include the title, student as single author, affiliation, e-mail address, postal address and abstract on the first page. Authors should mention supervisor(s) name and affiliation as well as any funding source(s) in acknowledgements section. Papers should be submitted online using EasyChair.

The submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=asonampfp2015.

Paper submission implies the main author of the paper is a graduate students and one of the authors must pay full registration fee and attend the PhD forum to present the paper. The PhD forum participants will also enjoy free access to the full program of ASONAM 2015 and all the accompanying symposia, tutorials and workshops.
