                                 IEEE SRDS 2015
       34th International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems
         September 28 to October 1, 2015, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

                                Ph.D. Forum

Paper Submission deadline: August 19th

Notification of Acceptance: September 2nd

The goal of the Ph.D. forum is to provide a supportive setting in which
Ph.D. students can present and receive feedback on their work. Students
at different stages in their research will be able to present and
discuss their problem statement, goals, methods and results.  The forum
aims to provide students with useful guidance on various aspects of
their research from established researchers and other Ph.D. students
working in research areas related to reliable distributed systems.
Additionally, the forum aims to enable Ph.D. students to interact with
other participants in order to stimulate an exchange of ideas,
suggestions and experiences.

The symposium welcomes submissions by Ph.D. candidates working on the
topics of SRDS 2015. No copyrighted proceedings will be published so
that future publication of the work in conferences/journals is not
precluded. Accepted submissions will be made available electronically to 
all participants.

All students participating in the Ph.D. forum will be entitled to the
early registration fee.


The forum is open to all Ph.D. Students. Ph.D. Students at the beginning 
of their work are particularly welcome when they have a well-defined 
problem statement and some ideas about the solution that they want to 
discuss. Ph.D. students in a more advanced stage of their work should 
still have a sufficient time before completing their dissertation to be 
able to benefit from the forum experience.

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions should be written based on the following structure, which
focuses on the key methodological components required for a sound
research synthesis:

1.Problem: Describe the core problem of the Ph.D. and motivate its
2.State of the art: Describe relevant related work
3.Proposed approach: Present the approach taken and motivate how this is
novel with respect to existing works; sketch the methodology
4.Preliminary results: Describe the current status of the work and any
results that have been reached so far
5.Conclusions and future work: Conclude and specify the major items of
future work

Submissions must be no longer than 4 pages in IEEE two-column format.
Papers must be in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format and must
be submitted electronically. Submissions must be single-author, on the
topic of the doctoral work. The name of the supervisor must be clearly
marked ("supervised by...") on the paper, under the author's name.
