Call for Doctoral Forum Papers on Mobile Data Management

We are pleased to announce the Doctoral Forum on Mobile Data Management as part of the MDM 2024 conference. Building on the success of previous editions, the forum offers a unique platform for PhD students and recent graduates to present their dissertation research in mobile data management.

The primary objective of this forum is to establish a valuable environment for PhD students, regardless of their current stage in doctoral studies, enabling them to showcase their research projects. Within this setting, these students can receive constructive feedback from seasoned researchers specialising in mobile data management and its associated fields.

The forum is set to feature a session where PhD students can showcase their ongoing work alongside personalised mentoring through Small Group Discussions. Additionally, a dedicated panel session will delve into diverse career paths in academia and industry, providing valuable insights to enrich the professional journey of PhD students.
