For students the AOSD 2003 conference offers:
- Student Volunteer Positions: February
10th application deadline
- Student Research Extravaganza:
February 24th registration deadline for posters
Students will have the opportunity to hear short presentations from experts in
the field about AOSD research directions, and to present their own work as a
poster. This event is an excellent opportunity for students to get feedback on
their work from leaders in the field, and to mingle with other students. All
students are welcome.
This event has three overlapping goals:
1. Provide a venue for students to vet research
ideas and directions with experts in the field
2. Expose students to possible research
3. Allow students to get to know
We will start with some brief presentations from experts in the field about
where AOSD is heading, and interesting open problems. Then, we will divide the
room into interest areas. Students who have brought a poster will have been
assigned a space in the appropriate interest area. We will ask the students to
present their poster to experts in the area who will circulate around the
interest areas. Interesting discussions can then continue over refreshments.
We intend to have some space available during the conference the following day
for some of the posters to be available for viewing.
Any student attending the conference can
participate. Students wishing to present a poster must register by
Feb. 24. We request
students not presenting a poster also register to help us in our planning.
Please register by
emailing the Student Research Extravaganza organizers. Make sure
to include the following information:
- Areas of interest
- Will you be presenting poster? If so, title and keywords.
