Call for Phd Forum Submissions

The 41st IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2022) will hold a PhD Forum for PhD/doctoral and graduate students in early to medium stages towards their PhD/doctoral degrees.

The PhD Forum provides an opportunity for graduate students working in research areas related to reliable distributed systems to present their problem statement, research methods and planned contributions, and to receive high-quality feedback and guidance from established researchers and other graduate students joining the forum. The forum consists of two poster sessions and we also plan short presentation slots in the main conference program.
