    Call For Submissions
    
    24th Doctoral Symposium
    at ECOOP'14
    Monday, July 28th, 2014,
    Uppsala, Sweden
   
    http://ecoop14.it.uu.se/programme/doctoral-symposium.php



Goals
-----

The 2014 Doctoral Symposium provides a forum for both early and late-stage PhD students to 
present their research and get detailed feedback and advice. The main objectives of this event 
are:

	• to allow PhD students to practice writing clearly and to effectively present their research 
           proposal
	• to get constructive feedback from other researchers
	• to build bridges for potential research collaboration
	• to contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers at the 
          main conference.

The 24th edition of the Doctoral Symposium will be held as part of ECOOP 2014, Uppsala, Sweden.


Event Format
------------

This is a full-day event of interactive presentations where the morning session will be dedicated to 
junior students and the afternoon session will be dedicated to the senior students. Besides the 
formal presentations and discussions in sessions, there will be plenty of opportunities for informal 
interactions during breaks, lunch and (possibly) dinner. It is also planned that members of the 
academic panel will give short presentations on a variety of topics related to PhD studies and doing 
research.

The structure and length of submissions is discussed below, and differs between junior and senior 
students.

For Senior PhD Students
-----------------------

The goal of the doctoral symposium session is to provide PhD students with useful feedback towards 
the successful completion of their dissertation research. Each student is assigned an academic panel, 
based on the specifics of that student's research, and a panel of PhD students who will prepare to 
participate in the discussion of the proposal and the presentation. The Doctoral student will give a 
presentation of 15-20 minutes (exact time will be announced later), followed by 15-20 minutes of 
questions and feedback. The experience is meant to mimic a "mini-" defense interview. Aside from the 
actual feedback, this helps the student gain familiarity with the style and mechanics of such an interview 
(advisors of student presenters will not be allowed to attend their student's presentations).

To participate, the students should be far enough in their research to be able to present:

	• the importance of the problem
	• a clear research proposal
	• some preliminary work/results
	• an evaluation plan

The students should still have at least 12 months before defending their dissertation. We believe that 
students that are defending within a year would not be able to incorporate the feedback they receive.

To participate, please submit:

	• a 3-4 page abstract in the llncs format.
	• a letter from your advisor. This letter should include an assessment of the current status of your 
          dissertation research and an expected date for dissertation submission. The advisor should 
          e-mail this letter to Beatrice Εkerblom ([log in to unmask]).

Abstracts should be sumbitted to:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecoopds14

The abstract should focus on the following:

	• Problem Description
		• what is the problem?
		• what is the significance of this problem?
		• why the current state of the art can not solve this problem?

	• Goal Statement
		• what is the goal of your research?
		• what artifacts (tools, theories, methods) will be produced, and how do they address the 
                  stated problem? How are the artifacts going to help reach the stated goal?

	• Method
		• what experiments, prototypes, or studies need to be produced/executed?
		• what is the validation strategy? How will it demonstrate that the goal was reached?

Note that this is not a typical technical paper submission, and that the focus is not on technical details, 
but rather on research method.

In addition to the submission, the Doctoral student will be assigned the submissions of two PhD students for 
which written feedback should be submitted no later than July 14th. The Doctoral student will also be expected 
to take active part in all discussions, and especially when discussing the reviewed submissions.

For Junior PhD Students
-----------------------

This session is addressed primarily to PhD students in the early stages of their PhD work. The goal is to allow 
participants to present their research ideas and obtain feedback from the rest of the attendees. Each 
participant will give a 10-15 minute presentation, followed by 10-15 minutes of discussions (exact times will 
be announced later).

To participate, please submit:

	• 6-10 page position paper in the lncs format, presenting your idea or current work;
	• a support letter from your advisor. The advisor should e-mail this letter to Beatrice Εkerblom 
          ([log in to unmask]).

Position papers should be submitted to:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecoopds14

The position paper should contain (at least):

	• a problem description;
	• a detailed sketch of a proposed approach;
	• related work.

As this is earlier-stage research, it is not necessary to have concrete results from this research presented in the 
paper. Instead, the goal of the paper is to inform the reader of a (well-motivated) problem and to present a high 
level (possible) solution.

In addition to the submission, the PhD student will be assigned the submissions of two Doctoral students for 
which written summaries together with a few questions (2-3) that could be discussed in connection to the 
presentations should be submitted no later than July 14th. The PhD student will also be expected to take active 
part in all discussions, and especially when discussing the submissions for which the summaries have been 
written.

Previous Experiences
--------------------

  The ECOOP Doctoral Symposium is an excellent place to meet many interesting  
  people and discuss new ideas related to your research topic. It has a 
  friendly atmosphere which makes everybody welcomed and relaxed. By attending
  the PhD symposium last year, I had the opportunity to engage in new 
  collaborations with researchers from different institutions. I also received
  feedback from both well-established researchers and fellow PhD students 
  which had a great positive effect on my thesis. I would certainly recommend 
  all PhD students to attend the ECOOP PhD Symposium and Workshop.

  Eduardo Figueiredo, participant DS ECOOP'08
  
  The ECOOP Doctoral Symposium was a remarkable event. It was an honor to get 
  feedback on my personal thesis topic from such well-established researchers 
  in the field. Their comments not only encouraged me to continue with my 
  thesis work but also gave me valuable feedback on how to refine my concrete
  topic and bring the overall topic into shape. In addition, I found the other 
  students' talks to be some of the most interesting ones at ECOOP. Some of 
  them were very inspiring even for my own work. Overall, my participation in 
  the symposium will certainly have a great positive effect on my thesis. 
  Apart from that it was a fun day which made me meet many interesting people.

  Eric Bodden, participant DS ECOOP'07
