The CRISiS Ph.D. Workshop is intended to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics related to CRISiS conference series. The workshop will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. The workshop will be accompanied by prominent professors and researchers in the field of security and privacy. These accompanying professors will participate actively, mentoring and contribute to the discussions. The workshop is co-located with CRISiS 2013 conference.
We welcome submissions from PhD students at any stage of their PhD activity. Students in the early stage of their PhDs should focus on the problem that will be tackled, explain why it is relevant, detail the reasons for which the existing solutions are not adequate, and sketch the new solutions that are pursued. Students in the middle or final stage of their PhDs should be more concrete in describing their achievements, still in the context of their doctoral work. The following two types of paper are considered (papers should be formatted according to the same guidelines of CRISiS papers and submitted in PDF format):
Full papers: Full papers describing doctoral work. The paper must not exceed 6 pages in the conference proceedings format (including references).
Poster papers: Papers describing the outline of doctoral work or preliminary results. A poster paper must not exceed 2 pages in the conference proceedings format (including references).
Submissions must have the PhD student as first author. Submission are handled through easychair: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=crisis2013. Submission will be closing on August, 10th 2013 at 11:59pm CET.
Review Process and Acceptance Selection will be based on the clarity of the submitted materials. A mentor (chosen among PC members) will be nominated for each full paper accepted for presentation at the workshop (confirmation pending). He/She should follow the PhD student in the preparation of the camera ready version, stimulate the discussion about the specific topic during the workshop. Accepted submissions will be published in the proceedings. We plan to award a prize for the best submission.
