Call for Student Lightning Track

WMod's Student Lightning Talk (SLT) track welcomes original submissions whose first author is a graduate student (the advisor or other student or non-student collaborators may be co-authors), and once accepted which shall be presented by a student. The goal of this track is to provide useful feedback on the ongoing work as well as to exchange research ideas with other students and researchers. Students will be able to discuss their goals, methods, and results at an early stage in their research. Fifteen minutes are available for each student. We recommend limiting talks to ten minutes to allow five minutes of Q&A with Distinguished Fellows.

The accepted submission will be included in the proceedings of the WMod.
