Call for Papers for the Doctoral Symposium
The goal of the Doctoral Symposium is to provide a forum in which PhD students can present their work in progress. The symposium supports students by providing independent and constructive feedback about their already completed and, more importantly, planned research work. The symposium will be accompanied by prominent experts who will actively participate in critical discussions.
- Models: reasoning, execution, management, testing and validation
- Model transformations: paradigms, algorithms, development, applications, tools
- Graph theories
- Domain Specific Languages
- Proofs and Testing: debugging, frameworks, experiments, case studies
- Model-Driven Engineering
Any topic of interest for the conferences that will take place within STAF 2016 is highly welcomed.
Submissions exclusively authored by the PhD student are invited from students who have settled on a PhD topic. We do accept papers on both initial stage (first or second year) and mature stage (third year, or later) of research. The authors shall clearly indicate their stage of research maturity in a footnote to be added to the paper title.
- Problem: The problem the research intends to solve, the target audience of this research, and a motivation of why the problem is important and needs to be solved.
- Related work: A review of the relevant related work with an emphasis of how the proposed approach is different and what advantages it has over the existing state of the art.
- Proposed solution: A description of the proposed solution and which other work (e.g., in the form of methods or tools) it depends on.
- Preliminary work: A description of the work to-date and results achieved so far.
- Expected contributions: A list of the expected contributions to both theory and practice.
- Plan for evaluation and validation: A description of how it will be shown that the work does indeed solve the targeted problem and is superior to the existing state of the art (e.g., prototyping, industry case studies, user studies, experiments).
- Current status: The current status of the work and a planned timeline for completion.
Best Paper AwardThe best Doctoral Symposium paper will be awarded and receive a prize of EUR 300.
