PhD Forum

PhD Forum Organization

The PhD Forum provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their work in the areas of ICT related to the ConTEL 2017 conference topics to a wider community of researchers from academia and industry. The forum aims to encourage interaction and networking among doctoral students, as well as with the audience.

PhD Forum Programme

Wednesday, June 28, 2017
15.00-17.00, room “Mediteran”

Session Chairs: Ognjen Dobrijević (University of Zagreb, Croatia) and Višnja Križanović Čik (Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek, Croatia)


The PhD Forum consists of a poster session, preceded by a fast-paced introduction by each student that offers a preview of the posters. Each student is given a strictly-timed 2-minutes’ slot to present a “pitch talk” about her/his research. The purpose of the pitch talk is to provide a brief outline of one’s doctoral research work, with the goal to raise awareness and generate further discussion over the poster session and coffee break that follow.
