A PhD workshop will be organized as part of ISPDC’18 to offer to PhD students an occasion to present their on-going research to their pairs and the entire community. It will be organized as short oral presentations. Interested PhD student should submit a one-page abstract of their research objectives and the methodology they plan to apply. Preliminary results are welcome but not required. Due to possible time limitation, the organizing committee may have to proceed to a selection of the most representative submissions.
