The SOSP mentoring scheme is designed to facilitate the integration of new PhD students into the system community. We will match PhD students to postdoctoral research associates or faculty members and researchers in their research area of interest. All PhD students/SOSP newcomers are welcome but preference will be given to junior students if there are too few mentors.

The expectation is that the mentor and mentee will meet at some point during the conference (e.g., over lunch or at another convenient time). The hope is that this will give students the opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their field, while also make it easier for them to approach and meet other researchers. Mentors, we look forward to your help in making this a success and welcoming newcomers to SOSP. Mentees, we encourage you to reach out and take this opportunity to discuss and meet new colleagues!

We are very grateful for your help in contributing to make SOSP an inclusive and welcoming community. Please contact Natacha Crooks or Malte Schwarzkopf with any questions.

The deadlinefor signing up is October 15th. We expect to email mentors and mentees with their match(es) a few days before the conference.
