We propose a half-day workshop of presentations to facilitate the involvement of PhD Master degree students in the research area. The Student Workshop aim is twofold :

  • for PhD Student, the Workshop will offer the opportunity to present current PhD work. The aim is not to have straight presentations, but to grant enough time to discuss central issues of each thesis for the benefit of the student. A motivation for the research in the selected area and a review of related work (approaches, standards, etc) are required. The latter one needs to reveal deficits of the state-of-the-art that require further investigation.

  • for Master degree Student, the Workshop will offer the opportunity to present pre-doctoral work and introduce new research topics. One target for this attendance is to help them to meet future advisors or labs.


The topics of the Student Workshop are similar to the ones of the main conference. Therefore, the topics of interest include the following, but are not limited to them.
