I am finishing my third year in PhD program, and have at least 1.5 more years before finishing.
I have just recently submitted a regular research paper for a conference, will be waiting for around 2 months to hear back. Meanwhile I see a deadline for the Student / Doctoral program, for which the conference is expecting a 3-4 pg. research writeup.
I see such student / doctoral program section in almost any reasonable conference. I was wondering what to expect from such programs? Also I was wondering if it makes sense to apply for one, considering I am already submitting a paper there. Of course the paper isn't accepted yet.
Any general feedback about such programs? Thanks
