Description of the Student Symposium

The MEDES’12 Student Symposium is an international forum for research students working in all topics covered in the ACM MEDES’12 conference. See list of topics. The technical scope of the Symposium is also that of the main conference. 

The goals of the Student Symposium are: 

  • To provide a supportive yet a challenging setup in which Research students especially PhD students can present their work, 
  • To provide an opportunity for students to participate in MEDES’12, 
  • To create opportunities for students to publish their research works that worth publishing, and 
  • To support the MEDES’12 mission as an ACM venue for digital ecosystem. 

 

PhD students will be able to discuss their goals, methods, and results at any stage in their research. Any accepted student work will also be critically reviewed for its future contribution and continuity. The Symposium aims to provide students with useful guidance and feedback on various aspects of their research from established researchers and the other student attendees. The Student Symposium also seeks to support the students in the development of their natural scientific curiosity and to facilitate their networking within the scientific community.
