ECSA 2016 organizes a doctoral mentoring program that is intended for Ph.D.
students both in early and advanced stages of their research. This program
will provide an opportunity for students to interact closely with
established researchers in their fields, receive feedback on their work and
get advice on managing their research.

The goals of the doctoral mentoring program are:
*To match each student with an established researcher in the community (who
will act as a mentor). The mentor will interact closely with the student,
provide feedback on research, and help the student form new contacts.
*To allow students an opportunity to present their work to a friendly
audience of other students as well as mentors.
*To provide students with new contacts and networking opportunities.

The doctoral mentoring program will provide opportunities for interactions
between mentors and their mentees during the conference and the doctoral
symposium day.

We encourage submissions from Ph.D. students both at early and advanced
stages of their research within the field of software architecture. Based
on the submissions, the organizing committee will select a group of
students that will be invited to participate in the program. Participants
will be expected to take active part in all doctoral mentoring program
activities. A beneficial registration fee will apply for doctoral students
that participate in the program.

Each submission should include a set of documents from the student and a
recommendation letter from the advisor. The submission package consists of:
1. A two-page extended abstract of the student's thesis (accepted extended
abstracts will be published in the ACM Digital Library and must follow the
ACM format and submission guidelines:
2. A personal statement (one page) that includes:
a. The institute of study
b. The area of study (provide 1-3 keywords)
c. Two or three names of suggested mentors
3. A short (2-page) resume (CV)
4. A recommendation letter from the advisor (to be submitted by the
