Doctoral School

MUM 2019, the 18th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia will be held in Pisa, Italy, November 27th - 29th.

To apply for participation in the doctoral school, we ask you to submit a 2 to 3 pages long paper in the MUM 2019 Templates. The paper should describe the context and motivation of your PhD research, the problem and aims that drive your research and your research objectives and/or questions. It should further describe and explain your (proposed) research approach and methods, and include a discussion of any results you may already have. Please also include the context of your PhD, i.e. the university programme in which you conduct your PhD, the status of your PhD, the expected completion date, and any other relevant information on your PhD situation.

Submissions will not be peer-reviewed. We will select students for participation with a view of prioritising those who would likely benefit most, i.e. students who have a clear plan as a foundation for discussion, but are not already too advanced in their PhD to still be able to benefit from advice in developing their dissertation. Accepted students will be asked to prepare a presentation on their PhD research, and a poster which will be included in the MUM 2019 poster track. Submissions must be submitted via EasyChair. For accepted doctoral consortium submissions, the author can select if s/he wants the submission to be included to the conference proceedings.
