The 49th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN), October 8-10, 2024, in Caen, Normandy, France

Student Mentorship Program

LCN 2024 will host the 3rd Annual Student Mentorship Program to bring together students and senior researchers at LCN. Student mentorship will include a physical event at the venue of the LCN 2024 conference.

To kickoff this year's activity, the LCN Organizing Committee (OC) plans a physical (in-person) meetup on Monday evening, October 7 (the evening before the conference). The event will feature a concurrent social gathering, facilitating the opportunity for mentors and mentees to convene, socialize, and engage in productive interactions.

To ensure optimal benefits from the mentorship program, a proactive virtual connection will also be facilitated for individuals that are unable to attend the social event due to late arrival or other unforeseen circumstances. It is essential here that mentors and mentees establish communication (e.g., setting up a convenient timeslot for a virtual meeting through any tool of choice, such as Zoom, Skype, etc.) prior to the conference.

If you are interested in joining the student mentorship program as a mentee or a mentor, please kindly complete this short form no later than September 8 to assist us with logistics and facilitate effective matching based on interests. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. We look forward to meeting in person at LCN 2024! Feel free to contact the Student Mentorship Chair if you have any questions.

Note: The information collected through this survey will remain confidential and accessible solely to the organizers from the LCN committee. Its sole purpose is to facilitate the organization of the student mentorship event, including matching mentors and mentees based on interests and managing the logistics of the activity. Please be aware that attendance at the event and the completion of this form are entirely voluntary.
