I am a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering and I have been looking at submitting a paper to one particular conference I wanted to go to. In the end, I have missed the deadline for full paper submission. However, I still can have the option of doing a Ph.D. Forum submission. I been to several conferences already, but I am not really familiar with a "Ph.D. Forum".
What is a Ph.D. forum exactly? Is like a short/poster paper? (2-4 pages?) Is work still publishable?
My advisor tells me that it could be good idea for me to do it anyways, if I want.
