Call for PhD Symposium Submissions
The ICDE 2024 Ph.D. Symposium provides a forum for Ph.D. students to present their research ideas and interact with and receive feedback from senior members of the research community in academia and industry. The focus of the Symposium is to provide mentorship and constructive feedback to the students. The Symposium fosters a collaborative environment, encouraging constructive discussions and sharing of ideas.

Submissions are encouraged from students who have not yet received their Ph.D. degrees. Submissions from students in the early stages of their research should provide a clear statement of the problem being addressed and a clear outline of the planned methodology. Submissions from students who are farther into their research should clearly state the contributions made so far and the work lying ahead.
