The 2nd EuroSys Doctoral Workshop
organized by the European Chapter of ACM SIGOPS
Tuesday, April 1st, 2008
This full-day doctoral workshop, held on the day before the main EuroSys 2008 programme, will provide a forum for students to present their PhD work and receive constructive feedback and general advice from experts in the field as well as peers. Invited speakers and panel discussions will address common challenges and general advice for PhD students.
To ensure a productive, discussion-oriented environment, attendance will be limited to about 30 participants. We anticipate most participants to be current PhD students who have selected a clear research topic, but who are still early in their research process. Research topics of interest include "systems" work in the broadest sense, including work on formal foundations, as well as the design, implementation and evaluation of real systems.
Each potential participant should submit a short, 2-page PhD proposal and a letter of recommendation from his or her advisor. The PhD proposal should motivate the main research challenge being addressed; state the new approach being taken to solve the challenge, and a research plan for testing the thesis. All proposals will be reviewed and receive comments. In addition, a selection of proposals will be chosen for presentation and will receive feedback from a panel of experts during the workshop.
The workshop is generously sponsored by EuroSys. Registration will be free of charge. Students are also encouraged to apply for EuroSys student travel grants.
Potential participants should submit a PhD proposal and letter of recommendation by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight PST December 7th, 2007. Proposals should be submitted as a PDF file, in 2-column, single-spaced, 10pt format, and should be no longer than 2 pages (including title, references, figures and all other content).
Invited participants should register for the workshop via the Eurosys Registration page. Participants must register for the conference before signing up for workshops. The Doctoral workshop is held free of charge.
The meeting is being organised by the ACM SIGOPS European Chapter as part of their work on promoting systems research in Europe.
The organising committee for the meeting comprises both academic and industrial researchers who have published work at the main systems conferences and journals, with representation across different subject areas and countries.
