What is Doctoral Symposium
The joint COMPSAC/SAINT Doctoral Symposium will provide an international 
forum for doctoral students to interact with other students, faculty 
mentors, industry and government.

The Doctoral Symposium seeks to bring together PhD students working in 
COMPSAC and SAINT related fields. Selected students will have the 
opportunity to present and discuss their research goals, methodology, and 
preliminary results within a constructive and international atmosphere. 
Participants will obtain useful guidance for completion of their 
dissertation research and initiation of a research career, by comments 
discussions with mentors of COMPSAC and SAINT expertise. 

The Symposium organizers will strive to provide useful guidance for 
completion of the dissertation research and motivation for a research 
career. The Symposium is intended for students who have already settled on 
a specific research topic and have produced limited preliminary results, 
but have enough time remaining before their final defense to benefit from 
Symposium discussions.

All accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by IEEE 
Computer Society.
Page Form, Page Limit and Submission
Students should consider participating in the Doctoral Symposium at least 
one year before completion of their dissertation, but after having chosen a 
topic and begun to work on it.

Submissions should include only the student as a single author, and must be 
accompanied by a letter of recommendation from the advisor.  This letter 
should include your name, a candid assessment of the current status of your 
dissertation research, and an expected date for dissertation submission. 
The letter should be in PDF, and e-mailed to yamai at cc.okayama-u.ac.jp 
and ming at cs.fiu.edu with the subject: SAINT 2011 DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM 

Students wishing to participate in the Symposium must submit an extended 
paper that describes their dissertation research. Each paper should:
  - Clearly formulate the research topic
  - Outline the significant problems in the field and current solutions
  - Present the preliminary idea, the proposed approach, the evaluation 
    plan, and results achieved to date
  - Explicitly point out the contributions of the proposed work

Submissions that fail to address these issues, or present them in a poorly 
organized way, are not likely to be accepted.

The length of the submission and camera-ready versions of the paper is 
limited to 4 pages (IEEE Proceedings style) printed in 10-12 point font. 
Please follow IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to 
prepare your paper. LaTeX formatting macros and Word template are  
available on the IEEE CS Web site. 

Papers should be submitted either to COMPSAC or to SAINT, but not to both. 
(Submitters should select the submission site based on the relevance of the 
conference's topics to their research.)

Check SAINT web for a paper submission page.

Submissions will be judged on originality, significance of potential 
contribution to the field, technical merit, presentation quality, and 
adherence to paper submission guidelines.
Doctoral Symposium authors are eligible to register under the student 
registration fee. An author for each paper should complete STUDENT 
registration for the Doctoral Symposium paper, prior to the submission of 
the final manuscript. Otherwise the paper will not appear in the 
Poster Presentation
An author of an accepted paper will be asked to provide a poster describing 
their research. A format of a poster will be informed to an author prior to 
the conference. A poster presentation by an author will be done during the 
conference. The exact date for poster presentation will be announced with 
"Program at a Glance."

It also should be noted that any paper will not be included in the IEEE-CS 
digital library if no poster presentation is made without reasonable 
Joint Panel "Technology Summit : International Perspectives on Computed World"
COMPSAC/SAINT2011 specifically plans to hold the joint Panel "Technology 
Summit : International Perspectives on Computed World". Panelists of this 
special event are key-persons from academia, industries, founders and 
societies. This panel will be organized in conjunction with COMPSAC/SAINT 
Doctoral Symposium. So it will provide students for a talk about how to 
drive their career with key-persons from those areas. Panelists and further 
detail of the panel will be announced on the web, so do not miss this 
special event.
