I am organizing the First ITA Doctoral Symposium (ITADS) with the help of other PhD students involved in ITA, it will run as a workshop during the Annual Conference of ITA (ACITA) 2008 in London on Tuesday (September 16th). http://www.usukita.org/?q=acita_2008 

The main aim is to provide a forum for PhD students within ITA which will give us support/feedback and will build a student research community.

ITA project is indeed creating a new research community with unique aspects (In the Bootcamp, our annual brainstorming meeting, the participants were over 140!). One over all is the interdisciplinary aspect (psychology, computer scientists, military experts, etc. ) with which we are addressing sensor network problems.

So in my opinion ITA should do something to build a future for this research comunity, and since PhD students are (hopefully) going to be the next generation of scientists/researchers, they should feel part of the same research community.
