ITC 33 will feature a PhD Workshop, providing early-state researchers with an opportunity to present their work-in-progress papers.
Call for work-in-progress papers for PhD Workshop at the 33rd International Teletraffic Congress (ITC 33, 2021)
Friday Sept. 3, 2021
The International Teletraffic Congress ITC 33, to be held during 31/08-03/09 2021, at the Avignon University, France, is the 33rd edition of this international flagship congress in the field of teletraffic models, network systems, and measurements. ITC 33 features the future networks taking advantage of 5G and artificial intelligence (AI), towards “AI-integrated Networks”.
ITC 33 will host a Ph.D. workshop covering all aspects on design, modelling, measurement, and performance evaluation of communication systems, networks, and services. The workshop will offer:
- a constructive environment for doctoral students to discuss their ongoing work towards the Ph.D. with a panel of experienced researchers in the field;
- an opportunity for the participants to initiate a personal network with both other Ph.D. students and leading research experts, outside their own group.
The workshop will be structured as a series of short presentations by the students, followed by individual discussions and feedback. The panelists will also offer their experience and advice on how to carry out a successful Ph.D. and start a career as a researcher.
Students in the middle stages of their Ph.D. are encouraged to submit a 2-page work-in-progress paper about their research. Submissions will be reviewed by the PhD forum committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the workshop. All accepted submissions will be published as part of the main conference proceedings. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate in the conference for free (with registration fee waived) and to present their work-in-progress papers to get feedbacks.
While the Ph.D. workshop is primarily a venue to present ongoing rather than completed work, in the work-in-progress paper, the Ph.D. thesis statement should be clearly identified including the problem addressed, the contribution expected to the field, the methodology chosen, the results achieved so far, and the work planned ahead. The work-in-progress paper shall also include 1) a short abstract up to 100 words; 2) a short paragraph with information on how long she/he has been in the Ph.D. program, the expected timeline towards graduation, and the name of the supervisor(s). The student should be the sole author, although contributions of others (e.g., the advisor) should be acknowledged.
The scope of the submissions is the same as that listed in the ITC 33 Call for Papers. Submissions will be reviewed by the Ph.D. workshop committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the forum. Submissions must be in PDF format, written in English, adhere to its formatting guidelines, and contain no more than 3 pages double-column IEEE format including abstract, figures, tables, and references. Submissions must include the student’s name, affiliation, and email address on the first page. Extended abstract can be submitted at https://edas.info/N27999
