IEEE IMS Portugal, Spain and Germany Chapters 

The Doctoral Consortium provides a unique opportunity for students who are starting the PhD or at the middle of their PhD research, to interact with experienced researchers from different specializations of the doctoral in information science and technologies. Senior members (mentors) of the scientific community will interact with the PhD students presenters, giving advice related to their future research.

All invited PhD students and supervisors from two IEEE IMS communities (Portugal, Spain and Germany ) will attend the IEEE IMS Doctoral Consortium, which will be done face-to-face and on-line. The students will have the opportunity to discuss their ongoing research and career plans with the IEEE mentors. Short presentations about the student’s PhD projects will be made, for about 15 min, and the feedback and interaction with the mentors which will also have the  duration of 15 min.  Additionally, interaction with students close to finishing their doctoral research will be considered for the end of the activities where suggestions can be also considered from this group of participants.
