Welcome to The International Doctoral Forum 2016
Dear PhD Candidates,
As Organizing Chairs of the 9th International Doctoral Forum, we are delighted to invite you to attend the forum to be held October 28-30, 2016, in Hong Kong, China. This is the premier scientific conference designed to address the research and educational needs of PhD candidates who are involved in the field of networking, big data and multimedia computing.
The forum will consist of invited speeches and technical presentations. In addition to the technical activities of the forum, there will be ample opportunities for delegates to network through cultural and social events. There will be time for sightseeing around Hong Kong.
In addition, we would like to express our gratitude to the organizing committee, the technical program committee, the steering committee, authors, participants and many other contributors. Without the support of these people, the forum cannot come to a successful one. We would like to show the warmest gratitude to the host of this forum, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). CUHK has covered major part of the local expenses of the forum, including local transportation and accommodations.
Last but not least, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to Hong Kong and the 9th International Doctoral Forum. We hope that you will have an enjoyable and productive time in Hong Kong and leave with fond memories of great experience at the forum.Sincerely Yours,
Prof. Helen Meng (The Chinese University of Hong Kong) Prof. Yanning Zhang (Northwestern Polytechnical University)
