The DEBS 2018 Doctoral Symposium welcomes submissions from doctoral students who are working on topics that are relevant to the DEBS conference.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
An important aspect of doctoral research is that you can explain your work well to academics who are not necessarily experts in your field of research. For this symposium we challenge students to effectively write a brief introduction to their research that could serve as a basis for the first chapter of their thesis.
The submission consists of a (singly authored) extended abstract of at most 4 pages, including:
Submitted papers are required to adhere to the two column “sigconf” ACM conference proceeding style. Templates and examples in LaTeX and various versions of Microsoft Word are available for download from the 2017 ACM Master Article Template page.
The abstracts must comply with the guidelines as stated on the DEBS general submission page. The submission should also include a short statement from the advisor that certifies the status of PhD student and approves the submitted extended abstract.
We encourage submissions from students both at early and late stages of their doctoral work. Students whose submissions are accepted will have the opportunity to present their work during the symposium. Distinguished scientists spanning Europe, North America and the rest of the world, in both academic and industrial research will be present to give feedback and advice to the students.
