Special Session for Ph.D students


The Ph.D. Special Session is aimed at giving Ph.D. students the opportunity to present their research and to receive feedback by professors and senior researchers in the fields of electrical and electronic measuring techniques and implementation principles of information and communication technology for measurement accuracy enhancement. The event will allow young researchers to exchange ideas and information about their work, to refresh personal contacts and/or to establish new ones, giving also the opportunity to share knowledge and foster collaborations in interdisciplinary fields.

The session welcome submissions from Ph.D. students at any stage of their Ph.D. work, including those who have already received the Ph.D. degree in the early months of 2020. Papers can be single-authored or coauthored by the Ph.D. student, who must present the work at the conference.

For students who are beginning or in the early stages of their Ph.D. studies, the submission should describe the research problem, its motivation and relevance in the field, explaining limits of existing solutions and giving an outline of the new ideas pursued with the doctoral work. For students who are in the middle or close to complete your Ph.D. or have just completed it, the submission should present the new findings and results of the developed research, in the context of the doctoral work or Ph.D. thesis.

A conference Award will be given to the Best Paper of the Ph.D. Special Session, based on technical merit, originality, potential impact on the field, paper clarity, and presentation quality.


Ph.D. Special Session papers can be in the fields of all IMEKO TC-4 Symposium and IWADC topics or interdisciplinary issues related to them.
