Doctoral consortium

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a forum where PhD students can present their research ideas to the scientific community, receive feedback from mentors, and establish cooperations. Students will receive inspiration from their peers and will have a chance to discuss their research objectives with senior members of the community in the context of an established international conference.
The DC session will take place on September 5, in parallel with the workshop sessions. Each participant will present her/his work, followed by a discussion with senior researchers.
