The goal of the Doctoral Track is to engage graduate students, especially Ph.D. students, that work in the general area of networking to actively participate and contribute to the 45th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (IEEE LCN 2020). The Doctoral Track provides a supportive setting for graduate students to interact closely with established researchers in the field; receive feedback on their research and get advice on managing their research for entering the job market. The Doctoral Track will also help participants to establish a network with their peers in selected areas of computer networks. 

The technical scope of the Doctoral Track of IEEE LCN 2020 includes topics related to theoretical and practical aspects of computer networking. These can range from major developments in high-speed networks to the global Internet to specialized sensor networks. The first author of each submission must be a student.
