IEEE WoWMoM 2018 will host a PhD Forum providing an opportunity to PhD students for presenting their dissertation research, recently finished or still ongoing, in the areas of wireless, mobile, and multimedia networking as well as ubiquitous and pervasive systems. The forum encourages the interaction among PhD students, and helps them to obtain feedback from senior researchers from academia, industry, and government. The forum will be organized as a poster session and will include a short introduction by each student.

Current PhD students and researchers who completed their PhD dissertations after July 2017 are encouraged to submit extended abstracts. The PhD student should be the sole author, although contributions of the advisor and others may be acknowledged in the extended abstract. Submissions will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. PhD student authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend WoWMoM 2018 and present their poster at the PhD Forum. Accepted extended abstracts of presented posters will appear in the conference proceedings.

Submissions must be aligned to the topic areas of IEEE WoWMoM 2018:
