Advanced Doctoral Conference on Computing, Electrical and Industrial Systems

The annual international conference organized by the PhD program on Electrical and Computer Engineering. Guided by experience professors, PhD students learn hands-on how to organize an international scientific event. DoCEIS corresponds to an important mechanism to provide students with both scientific and soft skills.

The event will have a typical duration of 3 days. It is open to the participation of PhD students from other universities and usually attracts 80 to 100 participants from 22-25 countries.

Among other activities, it includes:

  • Tutorials by invited experts on scientific, methodological, or soft skills topics.
  • Presentation and discussion of the base ideas of the thesis plans.
  • Discussion of the scientific and technical challenges in the several Electrical and Computer Engineering specialization areas.
  • Sharing of experiences among PhD students from different geographical regions.
  • Forum on practical aspects (e.g. Publications, job market, careers, etc.).
  • Creation of collaborative (social) networks.

In addition to being active participants in the Conference, the PhD students must have a direct role in the event organization process as part of their soft skills training.
