Three papers will be nominated for the Google award PhD Workshop. Each workshop will be led by a different “commenter” whom will generate a discussion among participants on every author’s paper. Authors will be encouraged to participate by answering questions.

Leading up to the workshop, there will be a significant amount preparation for participants who will be expected to read the three papers in advance and be prepared to discuss throughout the workshop. Participants will vote for the best paper at the end.

All conference delegates will be invited to take part in the PhD workshop either as a facilitator or participant. Workshop places are limited and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. To enable preparation, papers will be sent to the selected participants 3 weeks in advance the conference.
