Call for PhD online Workshop

The SIGraDi PhD Workshop is a unique opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their research proposals in the CAAD field and related topics. The workshop aims to promote interaction between doctoral students and more experienced researchers and collaboration between doctoral students working on similar topics. Student enrollments at any stage of the work are welcome.

The workshop will take place on November 16th and 17th from 9am to 11:30am. It is planned to discuss up to 10 proposals. In the case that more than 10 proposals are approved in the review process, the ones that are in the final phase and represent the diversity of topics in the area will be selected for presentation. The remaining candidates will receive written comments and are welcome to attend the workshop as listeners.

The Committee will select the best presentation, whose author will receive a certificate and a SIGraDi Conference attendee registration (or reimbursement), which includes one year’s membership of the society. In addition, the best presentations could be selected for the First Global PhD Workshop.
