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.
