Your target audience should be somewhere between high-profile academics, who are often swamped with admirers, and other lost or confused students.The best thing to do is to turn up early and find a like-minded individual, or to wait until circles form and edge your way in – smiling in a friendly (but not unusual) way.
Now in the third year of my research, I still find conferences quite mysterious, and I suspect that I will continue to do so for some time.
From the surprisingly irrelevant to the unexpectedly essential, conferences offer a diverse range of experiences for the Ph D student.
An honourable mention award, if any, is accompanied by a prize of ₹1,00,000.
Eligibility Each Ph D granting institution based in India can normally nominate 1 student for the award.
Institutions that produce more than 10 dissertations in relevant areas per year can nominate 2 students.
Each dissertation nominated for the 2020 award must have been defended successfully between August 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019.Each nomination must be accompanied by an assignment to ACM by the author of exclusive publication rights, as per ACM's copyright policies.Copyright will automatically revert to an author if her/his dissertation is not selected. A record of publications in conferences and journals of the work reported in the dissertation, along with their citations, if any. A copyright transfer form filled out and signed by the candidate.You will be asked for this at the beginning of almost every conversation, to judge if you are worth talking to.If silences result, find a new circle (or talk about the refreshments).Beware though: irrelevant, misjudged, or long-winded accounts of your own knowledge will not go down well.Instead, offer a (well-rehearsed) summary of your research.Supporting letters should not come directly from the supporters -- all necessary material, including supporting letters, may be collected and submitted by the thesis advisor, bundled as a zip file. The submission web page for ACM IDDA 2020 is https://easychair.org/conferences/? Selection Procedure Dissertations will be reviewed for technical depth and significance of the research contribution, potential impact on theory and practice, and quality of presentation.A committee of eminent Computer Science researchers from across the world will perform an initial screening to generate a short list, followed by an in-depth evaluation to determine the winning dissertation.But there are always exceptions, and it is useful to expand your perspective.To identify relevant conferences and workshops, sign up to as many subject-specific mailing lists as you can find.
