Join the workshop this year!
Get involved by submitting your paper. Go for instructions how to prepare the Paper and the Workshop Presentation.
Your presentation during the Workshop will be carefully evaluated from several perspectives by the Program Committee members, and particularly:
• your research plan,
• your current results,
• your writing skills and presentation quality,
• future potential of your selected scientific problems.
You will get targeted feedback, specially dedicated to you to assist you with future research development.
Presentations will be appraised in two categories:
1. Initial Research Category – evaluation of the research proposal and the research plan,
2. Advanced Research Category – evaluation of research plan and the progress showing some own new results.
To assist you with a preparation of the good quality paper, it is expected a note of recommendation from your research advisor submitted together with your paper.
All submitted papers with supervisor’s recommendation will be accepted to the Workshop. However, based on the detailed evaluation of all papers and presentations, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of the presented work for publication in the journal Computer Science, published by the AGH University of Science and Technology.
The participants get a chance to attend and comment on presentations from your PhD colleagues from different universities. Refreshing inspiration from workshop appearances will energize you for your subsequent efforts towards the PhD degree. Trust us, building the community is helpful and encouraging for future collaboration!
