Call for PhD Forum

SustainIT 2013 will host a PhD Forum on Sustainable Internet and ICT for Sustainability. The Forum will give an opportunity to PhD students for presenting their research work, including work in progress, and for interacting with other students and experienced researchers from industry and academia on the important topics of eco-sustainability and energy-awareness by means of novel ICT solutions. The Forum will be organized as a poster session and will include a short introduction by each student.

Current PhD students and researchers who completed their PhD dissertations after December 2012 are encouraged to submit extended abstracts. The PhD student and his/her advisor(s) can be the only authors. Submissions will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend SustainIT 2013 and present their poster at the PhD Forum. Accepted extended abstracts will appear in conference proceedings.
