PhD Workshop

The PhD workshop is a new event for the ICPE conference. It provides an open forum to help PhD students get familiar with the community as early as possible.


The goal of the PhD workshop is two-fold:

  • To provide an opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their PhD research topics, plans, methodologies, and preliminary results obtaining some early feedback from the community.

  • To provide an opportunity for PhD students to discuss with a few of well experienced professors or senior engineers from industry about their PhD research. The professors or engineers will evaluate the research topics, methodologies, and plans of the PhD students and give them comments.
