A Ph.D. consortium will be held in conjunction with IEEE CloudCom 2016 in Luxembourg. The Ph.D. consortium aims to provide an opportunity for Ph.D. students in the early stage of their dissertation and Master students planning to advance their study in a doctoral program to present their research results and receive feedback from experienced scholars and industry experts.

We invite papers on any topic related to a broad set of research and application areas covered by IEEE CloudCom. Manuscripts need to be prepared according to the IEEE CS format. The page limit is four pages.
