The Ph.D. Forum at EWSN 2022 to be held in Linz, Austria, provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their work-in-progress to the scientific community and to obtain individual feedback from leading researchers in the field.

The Ph.D. Forum will be structured as a series of presentations by the students, followed by a discussion with experts in the field to obtain individual feedback and advice. In addition, a poster session will provide an opportunity for more technical, in-depth discussions. The expert panelists will also share their experience and advice on how to carry out a successful Ph.D. and start a career as a researcher.

Current Ph.D. students in all stages of their career are encouraged to submit a 3-page abstract. Two pages concern their ongoing research to be considered for the Ph.D. Forum. The third page shall also include a bio, along with brief information on how long the student has been enrolled in the Ph.D. program and the expected time until graduation. The student should be the *sole* author although contributions of the adviser and others should be acknowledged.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Ph.D. Forum committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the Forum. All accepted submissions will be published as part of the main conference proceedings. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate in person in the Forum and to present a poster both at the Forum and at the main conference. There will be no separate registration fee for the PhD. Forum; that is, participating students will only need to register to the main EWSN conference. For any questions, please contact Grigore Stamatescu or Konrad Diwold
