Call for PhD track papers

The SecureComm 2021 PhD Track provides an opportunity for doctoral candidates to present their research interests in a workshop format, receiving guidance and feedback from a panel of academia, industry, and government experts. Specifically, the PhD Track invites submissions from doctoral candidates who are in the process of their thesis proposal or relatively early in their research.

  • Papers may address any topic appropriate to SecureComm.
  • Submitted papers should have a single author (i.e., the doctoral candidate), though faculty advisors and/or other collaborators can be listed in an Acknowledgements section.
  • Participants will submit a short paper (6-11 pages) in the Springer LNCS format describing:
  1. their research problem;
  2. outline their objectives;
  3. briefly describe the state-of-the-art;
  4. their methodology;
  5. their expected outcome;
  6. The current stage of their research.
