The PhD Forum has been a regular event of the IEEE ICNP conference for the past years. This forum is intended for both doctoral students who are starting their PhD and those who are towards the end of their dissertation to discuss their work. In contrast to previous years, the PhD Forum of ICNP 2013 is designed as a full day event including keynote talks, short oral presentations by PhD students, and group discussions. Based on the quality of presentations, a selected number of students will be invited to give a pitch talk at the main conference. This forum will provide an opportunity to get advice, to train presentation skills, and to network.
The topics of interest coincide with ICNP 2013. They include, but are not limited to:
WHY SHOULD I SUBMIT?
HOW TO SUBMIT?
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of up to 4 pages, in IEEE conference proceedings format (2-columns). All submissions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Submissions will be handled via EDAS and should include:
You can submit your paper at http://edas.info/N14799.

Workshop: October 7, 2013
At the PhD Forum we will have two keynote talks given by young and well-established experts. Eric Osterweil and Emmanuel Baccelli will share their insights into specific technical topics, as well as experiences in professional research in academia and industry.
Eric Osterweil is a Senior Research Engineer on the Verisign Labs team. He received his Ph.D. from the Computer Science department of UCLA in 2010. He did his thesis work in the Internet Research Lab (IRL) where his advisor was Professor Lixia Zhang, and his dissertation topic was a new substrate for Internet-scale security systems called "Measurable Security."
Eric is an active member of the IETF and other research communities. In the IETF he participates in the evolution of protocols and systems such as DNS and DNSSEC. As part of his participation in the community, Eric has authored several utilities that have helped facilitate and evolve the DNSSEC deployment (including SecSpider, dnsfunnel, dnskey-grab, and Vantages). Much of Eric's operational interactions have lead to publications of his research results in various ACM and IEEE venues. More information can be found at Verisign Labs.
Emmanuel Baccelli is a Scientific Researcher at INRIA, Paris, France. After working for AT&T Labs in Florham Park, New Jersey, USA, and for Metro-Optix Inc. in the Silicon Valley, as software engineer until 2002, he joined Hitachi Europe as research engineer. He received his Ph.D. from Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France, in 2006 and joined INRIA in 2007. Emmanuel Baccelli received his Habilitation from Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France in 2012, and he is currently visiting professor at the Freie Universität Berlin. His main research interests involve spontaneous wireless networks, mobility, design and analysis of network protocols and algorithms. Aside of his participation in the research community, Emmanuel Baccelli also contributes continuously in standardization efforts within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
