Doctoral Symposium and Early Career track
Call for Submissions CCGrid2024 Doctoral Symposium and Early Career Track
The Doctoral Symposium and Early Career track at CCGrid2024 provides a platform for students and early career researchers to gain visibility, solicit feedback, and get mentorship and networking opportunities with experts attending the conference. Participants of the track will present their work to their peers and researchers and participate in the poster sessions of the main conference. The best research, based on all aspects — extended abstract, presentation, and poster, will be part of the CCGrid2024 awards. We encourage PhD students at all stages of their dissertation (getting started, mid-way, all but done) and early career researchers, academicians, and practitioners to participate via submitting to the track and attending events related to the track. Submissions are invited in all areas related to the theme of the CCGrid2024 conference. The list of topics of interest is the same as in the Call for Conference Research Papers. Submissions can include partial or even preliminary ideas and results and details of proposed solutions, a high-level summary of your published work, or novel work-in-progress ideas. First-author students are encouraged to submit a short version of the main-track research paper to this track.
