Call for Doctoral Student Forum Participants and Student Travel Scholarship Applications
The SDM Doctoral Forum is a unique opportunity for PhD students in data science (including data mining, machine learning, databases, and pattern recognition) to present their doctoral dissertation in poster format and get feedback from SDM participants and senior leaders in the field. The SDM doctoral forum will be held in a plenary poster session alongside posters from the main conference, allowing for an interesting cross fertilization of ideas. Past participants have benefited significantly from this plenary session. Travel funding is also exclusively set aside for SDM doctoral forum participants for both US-based and international applicants.
With the generous support of SIAM, industry sponsors, and the NSF, the SIAM Conference on Data Mining (SDM 2018) is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of student travel scholarships to cover the registration and travel expenses for students participating the SDM 2018 Doctoral Forum.
Application deadline: Monday, February 12th, 2018
Notification date: Monday, February 26th, 2018
For travel scholarships, local students who live within 30 miles of the conference venue can receive only registration expenses.
