We are happy to announce the PhD session co-located with the SEBD conference that will be held on 24-27 June 2018 in Castellaneta Marina (Taranto), Italy .
The SEBD Ph.D. session is a unique opportunity for Ph.D. students to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a constructive atmosphere. Besides providing a forum that facilitates interactions among Ph.D. students, the session will be attended by prominent professors and researchers in the fields of database technology. These Mentors will participate actively, and contribute to the discussion with their feedback to students. The Ph.D. session has been located during the first day of the conference in order to foster further discussions and interactions between students and mentors in the following days.
We welcome submissions from Ph.D. students at any stage of their Ph.D. work. If you are in the early stages of your studies, the submission should clearly describe the problem focused on, explain the reason why it is important, detail why the existing solutions are not sufficient and give an outline of the new solutions that are pursued. If you are in the middle or close to complete your Ph.D. work, the submission should be more concrete in describing your contribution, but still in the context of the doctoral work.
PhD Students with accepted papers will be required to make a brief oral presentation.
