PhD Forum

BNCOD organizes a PhD forum that aims at providing an environment where PhD students, which are the upcoming generation of database researchers, may share their research experience, talk about their current work and research plans, get to know each other, and seek for advice from more experienced researchers. Submissions from PhD students at any stage are welcomed. For students who have just started their PhDs, they should describe the core problem they are working on, explain the importance, and give a research proposal. For students who are in the middle or about to finish their PhDs, they should sketch the methodology that is adopted, and describe the results have been reached so far.
