Student Forum

The Student Forum at DSN provides an opportunity for students currently working in the area of dependable computing to present and discuss their research objectives, approach and preliminary results. The Forum is centered around a conference track during which the selected student research papers will be presented.

Submission guidelines

Student research papers should be single-authored and describe the topic, preliminary results, and future direction of the student's on-going research. Papers submitted to the Forum should be at most three pages in length, must be formatted using standard two-column IEEE format, and must be submitted by the deadline of April 10, 2007. Since there is no revision cycle, the papers must be completely ready for printing. The two-column IEEE format layout guide is available here (follow sidebar: Information for Authors / Formatting).

Submission is via e-mail, preferably as a pdf attachment, to the following address: dsn2007sf@umich.edu

Questions or comments about the Student Forum should be directed to the Student Forum Chair Farnam Jahanian, University of Michigan: dsn2007sf@umich.edu

Selection and Notification

The criteria for acceptance of Student Research Papers will be originality, relevance and interest to the community. The submitted papers will be reviewed by a selection committee, led by the Student Forum Chair. Accepted contributions will be published in the supplementary volume of the 2007 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks, and presented in the Student Forum track at the conference. (Submission of a contribution to the Forum indicates agreement that the author will present the work, if accepted, at the conference).

Decisions will be notified by April 27, 2007.

Student Travel Grant

Students submitting a paper to the Student Forum (and, indeed, any student wishing to register for DSN 2007) should note that they are eligible to apply for a Student Travel Grant.
