Call for Papers
Objective and Overview of Program
The doctoral symposium is a forum for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their research objectives, methods, and preliminary results at an early enough stage to allow useful guidance in completing their dissertation and initiating research careers. Students interact with and receive guidance from established researchers and other attendees in the broad software engineering community. Participation is by invitation only.
Each student gives a 40 minute presentation of their research, followed by a 20 minute feedback session from the Doctoral Symposium Committee. At the end of the day, a roundtable discussion is used to cover general advice for completing their degrees, as well as answer questions surrounding careers in academia.
Students are receiving financial support for travel from a grant from Microsoft Corporation and funds from ACM SIGSOFT CAPS program (Conference Attendance Program for Students).
