The DSN Doctoral Forum provides an opportunity for students currently working in the area of dependable and secure computing to present and discuss their research objectives, approach, and preliminary results. It offers a place for students to present their ongoing research work, discuss emerging research ideas and their preliminary results, and get feedback that will hopefully help with their future research directions.
We encourage two-pages submissions describing ongoing work and research directions. The selected papers will be presented during the Doctoral Forum session, which will be attended by both fellow students and experienced researchers working in the field of dependable and secure computing, encouraging active discussion. The ideal paper will have a clear and compelling problem definition, innovative insights on solutions, a well-defined research plan, and preliminary results to motivate the research topic and justify the proposed solutions.
Doctoral Forum papers should have a student as the single author. The paper should describe the topic, preliminary results, and future direction of the student’s on-going research. The student must commit to presenting the work in person, if accepted, at the conference. Papers submitted to the Doctoral Forum should be at most two pages in length, and must be formatted using the IEEE Computer Society 8.5”x11” two-column camera-ready format (using a 10-point font on 12-point single-spaced leading). The templates are reproduced below for your convenience, and further details can be found here:
All accepted papers will be published in the DSN supplemental volume, and available through IEEExplore. They will be presented in dedicated sessions.
