CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO PhD FORUM
FPL 2016 PhD Forum is tailored for PhD students in two ways: Firstly,
it is an excellent occasion for PhDs to present their work in progress
or preliminary results, and receive early feedback from other
researchers in the domain. Secondly, it is a unique opportunity for
PhD students who are finishing their studies to give a broad overview
of their work and draw attention to it from both the academic and
PhD Forum authors are invited to submit 2-page papers using the format
of FPL 2016 regular papers. PhD Forum papers should include clear
descriptions of thesis motivation, objectives, problem definition,
addressed solutions, current status, and planned work. Contributions
based on preliminary results or on work in progress are particularly
encouraged. Accepted PhD Forum papers will be included in the
conference proceedings and presented at a special poster session.
Prior to this session, presenters will be offered the opportunity to
draw attention to their posters through a short “elevator pitch”
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEMO NIGHT
FPL 2016 Demo Night event is an excellent opportunity for conference
participants to demonstrate and disseminate their work, to increase
their visibility, and interact with attendees. Demonstrations may

systems, and more. The event will take place on one of the conference
evenings. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be offered to all attendees.
Demo Night presenters are invited to submit 1-page abstracts using the
