ICACCI’15 Doctoral Consortium

The goal of the Doctoral Consortium is to help PhD students with their thesis and research plans by providing feedback and general advice in a constructive and international atmosphere. The Doctoral Consortium will run in conjunction with the Third International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI 2015), India. ICACCI-2015 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society.

Ph.D. students are invited to make a submission to the Doctoral Consortium. Up to 30 Ph.D. students will have the opportunity to participate. The Doctoral Consortium will consist of 3 sessions. In the first session each PhD student will give a short oral presentation (about 3 minutes) about his/her work with focus on motivation and research problem. The oral presentations will be followed by a poster session for useful feedback and discussion. The third session aims at giving students feedback from an expert in their area and let them discuss their work with him/her.


Your paper must be formatted in the IEEE proceedings format. The length of the paper must be between 3 and 6 pages. The paper must be submitted as a single PDF-file, with all fonts included.

Your paper should clearly state:

  • the problem to be solved in your thesis (justify why this problem is important and make clear that previous research has not yet solved that problem)
  • your research hypothesis (claim)
  • your proposed solution
  • the expected contributions of your dissertation research
  • how you plan to evaluate your results and to present credible evidence of your results to the community

Selection Process & Publication

Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, correctness, and clarity. Notification of acceptance/rejection of submitted articles will be sent to the authors by e-mail. To be published in the proceedings, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference under student category (registration details are posted at http://icacci-conference.org/website/registration).
