The Doctoral Symposium provides an excellent opportunity for Doctoral students in the fields of condition monitoring, anomaly detection, fault diagnostics, prognostics, reliability assessment, or maintenance optimization to present their research interests and plans. The students will receive structured feedback from a panel of distinguished researchers, as well as comments from conference participants. This is also an outstanding opportunity to promote their work as well as to establish their supportive worldwide community and intellectual interactions among researchers from academia and industry in the fields of prognostics and health management.
PhD students in the fields of prognostics and health management, which are at least nine months from the beginning of their dissertation (but have not yet defended the thesis) at the time of Doctoral symposium (July 2022), are invited to submit a short paper (two or three pages) for this symposium.
Accepted submissions will be presented in the doctoral symposium session and will appear in the conference proceedings. The sectioned candidates, who wish, have the opportunity for a dedicated poster session (possibly as part of the evening reception) that would give access to, and receive feedback from, conference attendees.
Each doctoral student who wants to participate in the Doctoral Symposium should prepare the following documents and send them to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. CV with educational, employment and other experience. Clearly indicate beginning and expected graduation dates and contact information of your supervisor(s), including the list of all publications if any.
2. A short (~200 words) statement from the student on why she/he is interested in participating in the Doctoral Symposium. At the end of the statement, the student may, eventually, suggest the senior experts that she/he would be interested in discussing her/his work with.
3. Short paper of the dissertation research of the PhD student (two- or three-page summary). The use of figures, diagrams or illustrations is encouraged. It should include:
• Title, affiliation, and keywords
• Motivation and research problem statement
• A brief discussion on the state-of-the-art
• Novelty and significance relative to the state of the art
• Approach and proposed experiments (where appropriate)
• Results obtained if any
• Discussion of applications and the contributions of the work
• Work in progress
• Key references of the presented work
Students at the initial stage of their research might have some difficulty in addressing some of these instructions but should make the best attempt. The short paper should include a one-paragraph summary in the style of an abstract for a regular paper, and a text body that covers the points above.
The short paper must follow the PHM Society template.
Description of the Event
The Doctoral Symposium will take place during the conference (one day before the main technical program) in oral presentation formats.
For each accepted oral paper, a panel of senior experts (expressly chosen by the Doctoral Symposium co-chairs) will interact with the author and the audience during the presentation.
Doctoral symposium will be held for one day, consisting of 8 selected presentations. Each presentation will last no longer than 20 minutes, followed by 20 minutes’ discussion, providing constructive advice and suggestions.
A discussion between doctoral students may be organized at the end of the session depending on the available time.
Extended Submission Deadline for Doctoral Symposium: April 15, 2022 (note that Submission of complete conference papers and posters by April 3rd, 2022)
Review feedback: May 2nd, 2022 (Submit early and hear back early)
Final short paper or poster due: May 16th, 2022
