*Australian Software Engineering Conference 2014*
*Doctoral Symposium*

*Submission Deadline:* 31 January, 2014
*Notification to Author:* 28 February, 2014
*Submission Site:*

The aim of the ASWEC 2014 doctoral symposium is to give PhD students the
opportunity to present their research to receive constructive feedback from
a panel of senior researchers in software engineering. The doctoral
symposium is run in a highly interactive and workshop-like format. To
obtain maximum benefit from this symposium, students should consider
participating after they have settled on a research topic, with a defined
problem statement and some ideas about the solution that they want to
discuss. Papers submitted to the doctoral symposium should not exceed 4
pages. Contents should cover: (1) Related work in the area of study, which
clearly defines the gap, and the problem to be solved with a justification
of its importance (2) The specific research question that arises from the
identified problem (3) The proposed approach to address the research
question (4) Progress in solving the stated problem. For more advanced
students, papers should also describe (5) The main contribution(s) from the
research work (6) The method used to carry out the research, which should
include the plan for evaluating the approach and presenting evidence of the
results (7) Preliminary results.

To apply as a student participant to the Doctoral Symposium the following
two documents must be submitted before 31st January 2014.

*Extended Research Abstract:* Research abstracts must be formatted
according to the CPS
formatting<http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/home> guidelines
and must not exceed 4 pages, including all text, references, appendices,
and figures. Research abstracts must be in English and submitted via
Easychair in PDF format.
*Recommendation Letter:* A letter of recommendation from your main PhD
advisor that includes your name, and an assessment of the current status of
your dissertation research. The letter should be in PDF format and should
be sent by your advisor directly by e-mail to Doctoral Symposium Chair,
Didar Zowghi (Didar.Zowghi at uts.edu.au). This letter will be held

*Evaluation Criteria:* Participants for ASWEC Doctoral Symposium will be
selected using the following criteria: (1) The quality and potential of the
research and its relevance to Software Engineering (2) The stage of the
research and its suitability for the Doctoral Symposium.

Doctoral Symposium Chair: Professor Didar Zowghi
