Call for Young Researchers’ Symposium Papers

Call for Young Researchers’ Symposium Papers

The Young Researchers' Symposium at CODS-COMAD 2024 invites submissions from students and postdoctoral fellows. This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to have fruitful peer-to-peer discussions and to get feedback from leading senior researchers about their current research work. The YRS forum this year also includes a PhD clinic session (see below) where young researchers will be paired with senior mentors to enable personalized mentoring.

Submissions to the Young Researchers' Symposium (YRS) are in the form of a 2-page extended abstract, and are invited on the topics such as data systems, data science, machine learning, combining knowledge and data, data management and platforms, data-driven applications etc. We welcome many kinds of papers, such as, but not limited to: novel research papers, work-in-progress papers, appraisal papers of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned).

The first author of any submission should be an undergraduate/postgraduate/Ph.D. student or a Postdoctoral researcher affiliated with any academic institution.

Authors of accepted papers will get a chance to present their work both as a poster and a quick lightning talk at the conference. The extended abstract will appear in the proceedings of the conference, which will be published in ACM Digital Library.
