ICSOC 2007


The ICSOC Ph.D. Symposium is focused on mentoring doctoral students who are close to finishing their dissertations. Participating students will present their work in front of a mock thesis committee of 4-5 senior researchers in the field who will act as mentors and will provide extensive feedback and advice for preparing a successful Ph.D. dissertation. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions about research careers in industry and academia during a panel discussion. The goals of the Symposium are to expose students to constructive criticism before their thesis defense, to serve as an opportunity for networking with other students at a similar stage in their careers, and to provide guidance related to future career perspectives.

The PhD Symposium website contains additional details of the organization, expectations and submission process for the ICSOC PhD Symposium.
