The 6th European Conference of the Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Society invites applications from students currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the fields of diagnostics, prognostics, or condition‐based maintenance to present their research proposals at the Doctoral Symposium. The Doctoral Symposium provides an excellent opportunity for Doctoral students to present their research interests and plans at a formative stage in their educational program. The students will receive structured feedback from a panel of distinguished researchers, as well as comments from conference participants and fellow students in a collegial setting. Participants also present their research at the poster session to receive feedback from the larger PHM Society membership.
Application submission deadline: April 1, 2024
Notification of selection: April 15, 2024
Doctoral Symposium is held on: July 3-5, 2024 (It will take place as part of the main conference)
