Call for Papers

The goal of the ASE 2019 Doctoral Symposium is to provide a supportive yet questioning setting in which the Ph.D. students have an opportunity to present and discuss their research with other researchers in the ASE community. The symposium aims at providing students useful guidance and feedback on their research and to facilitate networking within the scientific community by interacting with established researchers and with their peers at a similar stage in their careers.

The technical scope of the symposium is that of ASE. Students should consider participating in the Doctoral Symposium after they have settled on a dissertation topic with some initial research results. The ASE 2019 Doctoral Symposium is open to Ph.D. students at any stage of their research, whereby students at the initial stage (first or second year) will be able to challenge their ideas and current research directions, while students at a later stage (third or fourth year) will be able to present their preliminary results and get advice for improvement and for better exposition of their contributions and conclusions.

Evaluation

The Doctoral Symposium Committee will select participants using the following criteria:

  • Quality of the research (plan) and its relevance to ASE
  • Quality of the research abstract
  • Diversity of background, research topics and approaches

Students should not infer that a list of prior publications is in any way expected or required; we welcome submissions from students for whom this will be their first formal submission as well as those who have previously published.

Submission

To apply as a student participant in the ASE 2019 Doctoral Symposium, one should prepare a submission package consisting of two parts, both of which must be submitted by the submission deadline (see instructions below).

All submissions must be in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). This is the same format as the research track.

Part 1: Research Abstract (max. 4 pages)

The research abstract must conform to the ASE 2019 formatting and submission instructions and should cover all of the following:

  • The research problem with justification of its importance
  • Discussion on previous work by submitter and others
  • A sketch of the proposed approach or solution
  • The expected contributions of the dissertation research
  • Progress that has been made so far in solving the stated problem
  • The methods that are or will be used to carry out the research
  • A plan for evaluating the work and presenting credible evidence to the research community
  • A list of publications (if any) of the submitter (appeared, accepted, submitted)

Students at the initial stage of their research might have some difficulty in addressing some of these instructions, but should make the best attempt. The research abstract should include the title of the work, the submitter’s name a one-paragraph summary in the style of an abstract for a regular paper, and a text body that covers the points above. A paper for a doctoral symposium typically describes the work of a single student and does not have any coauthors. During the submission process, the system will additionally ask for the name of the advisor(s), contact information, and a link to the submitter’s academic web page.

The deadline for submitting the research abstract is June 19th; notifications are expected on or before August 5th.

The submission site for the research abstract is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ase2019ds

Part 2: Letter of Recommendation

In addition to the research abstract, a submitter must provide a letter for recommendation from their Ph.D. advisor. This letter should include the student’s name and a candid assessment of the current status of the dissertation research and an expected date for dissertation submission. The recommendation letter should be in PDF, and sent to the co-chairs with the subject “ASE 2019 DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM RECOMMENDATION” at ase2019ds@easychair.org .

Acceptance

All authors of accepted contributions will receive further instructions for preparing their camera ready versions. Authors must register for the ASE 2019 Doctoral Symposium and present their work at the symposium.

Some funding will likely be available to offset travel.. stay tuned for updates
