PhD Forum program

ConTEL 2021 will host a PhD Forum on Friday, July 2, 2021, at 2 p.m. The PhD Forum will take place in hybrid format, with in-person attendance at the ConTEL 2021 conference venue and online participation via zoom.

A free registration is offered to students (all levels: B. Sc., M. Sc. and PhD) who only wish to attend the PhD Forum event (not the conference). To use this option, please send e-mail to to the Organizing Committee Chair Jasna Slavinić ().

The PhD Forum consists of a poster session, preceded by a fast-paced introduction by each student that offers a preview of the posters. The first part will be streamed via zoom and the second part will take place in a virtual environment that you will be able to join through the web browser (no installation necessary).

Each student will be 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 that follows next.

The PhD Forum poster session features 11 posters. Posters in PDF format can be viewed directly from the list below.

Link and password for the zoom session has been shared with all registered participants.
