Goal and Scope
The Doctoral Symposium aims to create a forum for PhD students working on foundations, techniques, methods and tools in the area of global software engineering. It will provide participants with an opportunity to present and to discuss their research with senior researchers of the global software engineering community in a constructive and friendly atmosphere.
Specifically, the symposium aims to:
The Doctoral Symposium is intended for students who have not yet completed their dissertation research and do not expect to write up their dissertation before the conference.
In addition to scientific matters, students will have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and performing research as a young professional in software engineering.
The Doctoral Symposium has the same scope of technical topics as the main ICGSE conference.
Submissions and Evaluation
To apply for participation at the symposium, you should prepare a submission package consisting of the two parts listed below.
Part 1: Research proposal (4 pages in GSD submission format) submitted by email to Daniela Damian:
Students at relatively early stages in their research will have some difficulty addressing all these areas in detail; this is understood.
Part 2: Letter of Support (from your research advisor), submitted by email to Daniela Damian.
The letter must include your name and an assessment of the current status of your thesis research and stage in the doctoral program, as well as an expected date for dissertation submission.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Symposium Panel and selected for inclusion in the symposium on the following criteria:
Presentation and publication of research proposal
Symposium participants are expected to present their proposal during the Symposium, as well as prepare and present a poster about their proposal during the Poster Session at the Conference. The 4-page proposal will be included in the Conference Proceedings. Registration at the conference is required for proposal to be printed in the Proceedings.
