The Doctoral Symposium is specially designed for students involved in the preparation of their PhD in any area related to the main CIO’17 topics. This Symposium brings the PhD students the chance to interactively discuss their research issues and ideas with senior researchers and receive constructive feedback from members of the research community.
The Doctoral Symposium will be held during the CIO’17 Conference, on July 5th, 2017. Each submission will be reviewed by different experts in the area. PhD students will present in oral format their thesis topic, the work they have performed so far and the results that they have obtained. A discussant will be appointed to each paper. The experts and audience will interact with the author, providing constructive advice and suggestions. Besides scientific matters, students will also have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing their PhD and performing research.
