Accepted extended abstracts will be published in the PRIMA Proceedings and be presented briefly at the student session.
  2. a curriculum vitae (2 pages) with background (name, university), education (degree sought, year/status in degree, previous degrees), employment, and relevant experience in research (publications, presentations, conferences attended, etc).
