We solicit submissions to the Graduate Colloquium of ICARC2025. Participating PhD/ MPhil students will present their proposed dissertation work and receive feedback from leading senior researchers. We invite contributions from student communities involved in all areas of computing.

The colloquium will allow students to discuss their research directions in a supportive atmosphere with a panel of distinguished leaders and with their peers. Students can expect helpful feedback and fresh perspectives on their research topics and possible career paths and will have the opportunity to interact closely with expert researchers in their field. The colloquium will support community-building by connecting early-career and established researchers in a welcoming and mentorship-forward environment.

The colloquium call is open to all PhD/ MPhil students, regardless of whether they are presenting research work at the main ICARC2025 conference or not. All research topics suitable for the main programs as well as associated workshops and symposia are appropriate for the Graduate Colloquium. The Graduate Colloquium strongly commits to achieving diversity among the student participants, including diversity across research groups and geographical areas.

The colloquium will consist of both parallel sessions of student presentations as well as general discussions with the expert panelists. A roundtable discussion session will give student participants the opportunity to interact more informally with all panelists to give students an opportunity to receive advice reflecting a broader set of perspectives.
