Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium will take place in conjunction with the 8th International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Embedded Computing and Communication Systems, (PECCS), to be held July 24 - 26 in Madrid, Spain. The PECCS 2018 doctoral consortium will provide an opportunity for graduate students to explore their research interests in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished experts in the field.

The Doctoral Consortium on Embedded Computing and Communication Systems is intended to bring together Ph.D. students within the sensor networks field to discuss their research in an international forum. More precisely, the Doctoral Consortium will provide students with an opportunity to:

• Present their research work in a relaxed and supportive environment;
• Receive feedback and suggestions from peers and experienced faculty members;
• Gain an overview of the breadth and depth of sensor networks;
• Obtain insight into directions for sensor networks research taken by other doctoral candidates;
• Discuss concerns about research, supervision, the job market, and other issues;
• Network with peers and future colleagues

Thus, the symposium will help shape ongoing and future research projects aimed at sensor networks, will promote scholarship and networking among new researchers in this interdisciplinary area, and will expose these promising young researchers to the larger global community.


The Doctoral Consortium advisory board will comment each presentation and at the end of the consortium there will be a general discussion, including a reflection about current and future research topics in the area.
