Call for Doctoral Symposium  

Call for Doctoral Symposium

Theme and goals of the symposium

Submissions to the doctoral symposium describe research-in-progress that is meant to lead to a PhD dissertation. The goal of the symposium is to provide doctoral students with independent constructive criticism

Regardless of whether or not the submission is accepted for presentation, students will hence benefit from submitting to the symposium.

Submissions must describe research - and intended research - from any area of model-based development in any activity of the development process. Students are asked to precisely state the problem, the (intended) solution, and the (intended) contributions, including pointers to relevant related work. The described research should be concrete enough as to allow for its assessment. It should, however, also be premature enough as to allow the doctoral students to incorporate the comments received from the reviewers and the audience before submitting the thesis (i.e., approximately in the 2nd to 3rd year).

In contrast to contributions to the main conference track, submissions to the doctoral symposium may concentrate on the overall goals of the doctoral thesis rather than on single technical results.

The program committee will judge the submissions w.r.t. originality and precision of the problem statement, solution description, and the contributions. Ideas and mere statements of intent will not be sufficient for acceptance. The program committee will also assess whether or not the (intended) contributions appear realistic.

The two best submissions will be recognized by a best paper award sponsored by IBM.

Important Dates

Submissions must be no longer than six pages in Springer LNCS format. Submissions are handled online via EasyChair,
