Doctoral symposium track –
all for submissions
11th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2017)
11 - 15 September 2017, University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom


The goal of the Doctoral Symposium is to encourage PhD students in the
field of software architecture to actively participate in and contribute to
ECSA 2017. Students will be able to present their research goal, methods
and preliminary results. They will interact closely with established
researchers in their fields, receive feedback on their work and get advice
on managing their research. The symposium will also help participants to
establish a new research and social network of their peers in the field of
software architecture.

Doctoral Symposium proceedings will be published in the ECSA 2017
Proceedings Companion Volume, and shall appear in the ACM Digital Library.


The technical scope of the Doctoral Symposium is that of ECSA 2017, as
represented by the list of the topics in the ECSA 2017 call for papers. We
encourage submissions from Ph.D. students both at early and advanced stages
of their research. Based on the submissions, the 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 the Doctoral


To participate at the Doctoral Symposium, students should prepare a
submission package consisting of two parts, a research abstract and a
letter of recommendation.

Part 1: Research summary paper. The paper (2-4 pages) should cover the
following aspects:

        • The problem to be solved and its importance in the software
architecture field;
        • Previous work which has addressed similar problems explaining why
they have not been previously solved;
        • The proposed approach;
        • The expected results;
        • A plan for the evaluation of results.

Part 2: Letter of recommendation

        • The recommendation letter should be submitted directly by the
advisors. The letter should include the submission number of the paper, the
name of the candidate, the status of the dissertation research, and an
expected date for the dissertation submission.
All contributions must be formatted according the ACM format and submission
guidelines. Contributions should be submitted using the online submission
site (EasyChair ECSA 2017 Doctoral Symposium Track).

Selection criteria

The Doctoral Symposium Committee using the following criteria will review

        • Technical quality of the submission, e.g., clarity, precision and
adequacy of the problem statement, related work, self-contained solution
description, expected results and their evaluation plan.
        • Overall quality, including originality of the submission, novelty
of the research approach, and relevance to ECSA 2017.
