Call For Paper: EuroSys Doctoral Symposium Workshop (EuroDW 2020)

Submission site: https://eurosys2020dw.hotcrp.com/

Important Dates
Submission due: March 1st, 2020 (anywhere on earth)
Acceptance notification: March 13th, 2020
Student grant application deadline: March 20, 2020
Workshop: April 27, 2020

The 14th EuroSys Doctoral Workshop (EuroDW 2020) will provide a forum for
PhD students to present their work and receive constructive feedback from
experts in the field as well as from peers. Technical presentations will be
augmented with general advice and discussions about getting a PhD, doing
research, and career perspectives. We invite applications from PhD students
at any stage of their doctoral studies.

EuroDW 2020 will also offer the opportunity for what we call €œ"mentoring
moments"€. The idea is to give graduate students a chance to talk
one-on-one (or, in some cases, one-on-two) about their research with
outstanding researchers beyond those available at the students' universities.

Goal of the Workshop
The goal of the workshop is to provide feedback and advice to PhD students
both on technical aspects of their research as well as career development.
We expect a range of attendees such as the presenters'€™ peers, as well as
senior researchers who will attend to share their expertise and provide
constructive feedback. The idea is to create opportunities for students to
meet with peers outside of their home institution, to get technical feedback
as well as career advice from senior researchers in their field, to find out
about internship and job opportunities, and to articulate their own work in
a public, non-threatening forum. We encourage the participants to stay for
the duration of the EuroSys main conference.

We expect most submissions to be from current PhD students who have selected
a clear research topic. Research topics of interest include €œsystems€ work
in the broadest sense, including work on formal foundations, as well as the
design, implementation and evaluation of real systems. Specifically,
research topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Artificial intelligent systems
Big data analytics frameworks
Cloud computing and data center systems
Database systems
Dependable systems
Distributed systems
File and storage systems
Language support and runtime systems
Mobile and pervasive systems
Networked systems
Operating systems
Parallelism, concurrency, and multicore systems
Real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems
Secure systems, privacy and anonymity preserving systems
Tracing, analysis, and transformation of systems
Virtualization systems

Note: the workshop is not a venue for publication; there will be no
published proceedings.

If you would like to participate in the workshop, please submit your
materials before the deadline. Submissions will receive written feedback
from the PC, but the submission process is very lightweight and the main
purpose is to put together the program and to match students with mentors.
Submission site: https://eurosys2020dw.hotcrp.com/

Submissions should be up to 2 pages (including title and figures but
excluding references) and should include the following sections only:
1. Abstract
2. Introduction (problem statement, an overview of the proposed work, main
differences from existing works)
3 Overview of the proposed work
4. Preliminary results (if applicable)
5. Work to be done (description of the planned work to address the proposed
research problem and brief timeline to PhD completion)
6. Related work

Submissions will be accessed based on the importance, clarity and relevance
to EuroSys of the research problem, excellent understanding of the core
related work, realistic and clear roadmap to work completion towards the
PhD, and overall quality of the submission paper.

Please note that there will be no published proceedings. Submissions shall
be in .pdf, 2-column, single-spaced, 10pt format.

In addition, please include the following information in your submission form:
PhD advisor;s name and affiliation
Year when you started your PhD
Expected submission date of the PhD thesis

Evangelia Kalyvianaki, University of Cambridge, UK
Lydia Y. Chen, TU Delft, the Netherlands
