CIbSE 2015 will host a Doctoral Symposium for PhD students whose research
area includes topics of Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering or
Experimental Software Engineering (Note that you can look at the specific
topics of the SET, WER and ESELAW Tracks).

The goals of the CIbSE 2015 Doctoral Symposium are:
- To provide PhD students in the early stages of their research with an
opportunity to survey the field and get a feeling for what their colleagues
are working on;
- To provide PhD students at a more advanced stage with an opportunity to
present their plans and early results;
- To provide all participant students with advice and suggestions from a
panel of senior researchers;
- To facilitate interaction among all the participants.

Following the time-honored tradition of CIbSE, the Symposium will revolve
around structured presentations and matching discussions, with ample time
devoted to comments from the floor. A number of senior researchers will
attend the event. Authors of sufficiently advanced proposals will be
invited to prepare a poster for the main conference. More information can
be found in  http://eventos.spc.org.pe/cibse2015


Presenters should have set on a dissertation topic in the general areas of
CIbSE such as Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering or
Experimental Software Engineering. Typically, you have progressed beyond
your first year in the program, or are close to doing so, but have not
submitted your thesis yet. To apply to the Doctoral Symposium, you will
need to submit an application to EasyChair
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dscibse2015 consisting of:

- A Research Abstract (max. 6 pages + 1 for references in LNCS style)
describing the problem you are addressing (what is unsatisfactory in the
current state of the world?), its relevance (why would anyone care if the
problem was solved?), your proposed solution (how do you plan to attack the
problem?), the novelty of the problem, of the solution, or both (nobody
identified the problem or provided the solution before you - i.e., what is
your original contribution), the research method you are applying (which
method are you following to get to the solution, and how do you prove it
solves the problem?), and the progress in your research (where are you, how
long to the final destination?). The Research Abstract should contain a
short survey and pointers to relevant literature.
- A Letter of Recommendation from your primary supervisor or advisor. The
letter need not discuss the research (which is already covered in your
abstract) but should include a statement about your position as a PhD
student, the starting and expected completion date of your PhD, and an
assessment of the current state of your research (including expectations
about the final delivery). If your research topic is not clearly in CIbSE
main Tracks topics, the letter should briefly make a case for relevance.

Submissions will be evaluated based on the quality of the Research
Abstract, and of the interest of the research described therein.
Submissions can be presented in Spanish, Portuguese or English languages.
