UK Electronics Forum 2012
The two principal forums for UK PhD presentations, the UK Asynchronous Forum and the UK Embedded Forum, have been combined into one larger event, with a widening of the scope. The event will now cover pretty much all aspects of electronics and computer science. The aim is to bring together those involved in all aspects of electronics research, to provide means for quick publication of work in progress, and acquire valuable feedback from referees and others. As a PhD student, you may have explained your work to like-minded peers - but for a communications engineer to explain their work to a computer scientist, for example, represents a different set of challenges.
Benefits of attendance include:
Workshop proceedings will be printed for distribution at the venue. Papers must be original work, and not under consideration elsewhere.
All papers are refereed by the programme committee. There is a size limit of 10 pages per submission. Presentation format is 25 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions and discussions. Authors are required to submit a pdf file electronically; please e-mail to email@example.com, no later than May 25th 2012. Authors will be informed of the program committee's final decision by June 15th. The final version of the paper is due on July 20th. As a result of the review process, authors may be asked to present a poster instead of giving a presentation.
The workshop is held at the University of Newcastle, Research Beehive, Old Library, room 2.22. This
shows Merz Court (School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering)
at the north-western corner of the University Campus; The Old Library Building,
with its semi-circular shape, is right next to it. Please turn immediately left after you enter,
go through the doors, and turn left to ascend the stairs.
The Haymarket Metro station is next to the south-eastern corner of the campus. Merz Court
is a 20-minute walk from the Central Station. Please also have a look at the
University web site.
Bed and Breakfast will be provided at Castle Leazes Halls of Residence. Here is another google map to show its location. Rooms are available from 2pm onwards, by which time the workshop has already started; attendees are requested to come straight to the workshop first. Car entry to Castle Leazes is via Hunters Road and Fountain Row (signposted). The shortest walking route from the railway station is via the Leazes Park entry on the intersection of Wellington Street and Barrack Road, just past Newcastle United's football stadium.
The forum dinner will be held at Red Mezze restaurant on Leazes Park Road, adjacent to the University Campus.
The registration deadline is 31st July. After this date, accomodation can no longer be guaranteed. Please use the registration web page.
