Title: How to ride the rollercoaster from Ph.D. to tenure-track Faculty.

Summary: Doing research sometimes feels like riding a roller coaster. Going from highs of publications, breakthroughs, and fun with fellow researchers, all the way to lows of uncertainty, lack of motivation and rejections. In this talk, I will describe how I dealt with some emotional challenges I faced during my Ph.D., academic job search and start as a tenure-track faculty. I will share the aspects of academia that excite me and motivate me to keep riding this rollercoaster. I will conclude with a short overview of my research and my attempt to establish a new intersection of research areas.

Registration Studentships

We are happy to announce that we can cover the registration fees of 15 student attendees; 15 awards will be funded by the Euro-Par Foundation. To qualify, you should be a PhD student studying Informatics and Computing Science at the time of the event.

On top of the above specific criteria for each studentship, the following criteria will be used:

  • Explicit recommendation by the advisor(s) is paramount, as awards will be given based on the strength of the advisor(s) letter.
  • Priority will be given to in-person attendees.

Successful applicants may be asked to undertake some tasks to assist the running of Euro-Par 2023.
