PhD students interested in presenting their work should submit a 1-page abstract motivating the main research challenge they are addressing and stating the approach being taken. Accepted proposals will be presented by the students in a "PhD session". Additionally, project work will be assigned to groups of students that will be evaluated at the end of the course by the SDCI board of lecturers. Upon request, students that will pass the exam will be provided by the school with a certificate.
Senior researchers will have the opportunity to disseminate results on running projects on areas related to the topic of the school. Researchers interested in presenting their work should submit a 1-page abstract of their project motivating the main research challenges on the topics of the winter school and the results achieved so far (if any). Accepted proposals will be presented by the researchers in a "Networking Session".
SDCI 2012 Winter School program is also pleased to host Luca Simoncini's Retirement Seminar.To submit an abstract for a PhD or a project presentation please send an email to Marco Platania within December 2nd.
