CyberC (IEEE-TCCC & IEEE TC@BD) 2023 Doctoral Consortium - Call for Participation

We are pleased to announce the call for submissions to the Doctoral Consortium (DC) for CyberC 2024. The DC is an invitation-only event scheduled for November 2nd from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm, designed to provide a supportive and mentorship-driven environment for Ph.D. students in various fields. The consortium facilitates in-depth discussions focused on participants’ research projects, methodologies, and encourages networking among early-career researchers from different universities and research groups.
The consortium will allow students to discuss their research directions in a supportive atmosphere with a panel of distinguished leaders and their peers. Students can expect helpful feedback and fresh perspectives on their research topics and possible career paths and will have the opportunity to interact closely with expert researchers in their field. The consortium will support community-building by connecting early-career and established researchers in a welcoming and mentorship-forward environment.
The DC call is open to all PhD students, regardless of their participation in the main CyberC conference. Preference will be given to students who are in the process of formulating or have just formulated a research topic and have at least one year remaining before defending their dissertation. Students in the very early stages of their studies and those planning to graduate shortly after the CyberC conference may not benefit as much from the consortium. We are committed to achieving diversity among the student participants, including diversity across research groups and geographical areas.

Topics

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • NLP, knowledge discovery, computational semantics, and applications
  • AI, machine learning, deep learning, Autonomy, and Intelligence
  • Cloud computing, information system, and distributed computing
  • Computer vision and image processing
  • Mobile computing, signaling process, wireless communications, quantum communications and computing, 5G and Beyond
  • Privacy, security, cryptography, and cybersecurity
  • Metaverse architecture, intelligence, and applications

Format

The colloquium will follow a structured format, wherein each student will have a dedicated 10-minute time slot to present their research work on stage. This will be followed by a 5-minute session for Q&A and feedback, facilitated by both peers and mentors. Please note that participation in the colloquium is only open to selected applicants, and attendance for all sessions of this event is expected. To cater to the needs of both students and mentors, we are planning to hold the DC in a hybrid mode. Additional details regarding the format and logistics will be communicated in due course.
