IEEE WoWMoM 2016 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 2015 are encouraged to submit extended abstracts. The PhD student and his/her advisor(s) can be the only authors. Submissions will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend WoWMoM 2016 and present their poster at the PhD Forum. Accepted extended abstracts will appear in conference proceedings.
