PhD/WiP Forum

Call for Submissions
The PhD/Work in Progress (WiP) Forum is hosted by the FDL committee. The forum is a great opportunity for PhD students who have recently completed their PhD thesis or who are close to complete their thesis to present their work to a broad audience in the system design and design automation community from both industry and academia. We also invite other researchers from academia or industry to submit their work in progress. The forum may also help students to establish contacts for entering the job market. In addition, representatives from industry and academia get a glance of state-of-the-art in system design and design automation.
