DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM at MODELS 2007
October 1st, 2007
Goal and Scope
The MoDELS 2007 Doctoral Symposium is a forum for Ph.D. students to discuss their goals, methodology, and results at an early stage in their research, in a critical but supportive and constructive environment. The Symposium aims to provide useful guidance for the completion of the dissertation research and motivation for a research career.
The technical scope of the Symposium is that of MoDELS. The Symposium will provide an opportunity for student participants to interact with other students at a similar stage in their careers and with established researchers in the software modeling community.
The symposium is intended for students who have already settled on a specific research topic (closely related to model-driven engineering) and have obtained initial results, but still have enough time remaining before their final defense so that they can benefit from the Symposium experience. Students should be at least a year from completion of their dissertation (at the time of the Symposium), to obtain maximum benefit from participation.

Students desiring to participate in the Symposium must submit an abstract describing their doctoral work. The abstract should be 5 pages in PDF format. It should conform to the Springer LNCS style: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
. All submissions must be in English
Submissions should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Expected date of graduation should be specified in the submission email.
The research abstract should cover:
Review and Evaluation Criteria:
- The technical problem to be solved with a justification of its importance.
- An account of related and prior work explaining why this has not solved the problem.
- The research hypothesis or claim.
- A sketch of the proposed solution.
- The expected contributions of your dissertation research.
- Progress in solving the stated problem.
- The methods you are using or will use to carry out your research
- A plan for evaluating your work and presenting credible evidence of your results to the research community.
Submissions will be judged on originality, overall contribution, technical merit, presentation quality and relevance to the conference topics. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two mentors from the Doctoral Symposium Committee. Each student that is invited to attend the symposium will be assigned a specific mentor who will be in charge of leading the discussion after the student's presentation.
Deadline for submission: May 1, 2007
Notification of acceptance: May 31, 2007
Deadline for Final Version: July 1, 2007
Symposium: October 1st, 2007
Publication and presentation
Accepted papers will be published on the Doctoral Symposium proceedings and summarized in the "Workshop and Symposia" proceedings by Springer in the LNCS series
. Students who are invited to attend will be given a 20-minute timeslot with 15 minutes for the presentation about their dissertation topic and 5 minutes for questions and responses.
An extended version (10 pages) of the two best papers will be published in the "Workshop and Symposia" proceedings by Springer in the LNCS series. The two best papers will be announced after the conference.
