DS at ECSA2019

The goal of the Doctoral Symposium is to encourage PhD students in the 
field of software architecture to actively participate in and contribute 
to the 13th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2019). 
Students will be able to present their research goals, 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 new research and social network of their peers 
in the field of software architecture.

The technical scope of the Doctoral Symposium is that of ECSA 2019, as 
represented by the list of the topics in the ECSA 2019 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 actively discuss and argue 
about their work by giving a presentation, presenting a poster and 
debating with senior researchers.

To help young researchers, this year we are honored to host the following


“Becoming and being a researcher--what I wish someone would have told me 
when I started doing research”

Prof. Carlo Ghezzi


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 relevance in the software
    architecture field;


    Previous work which has addressed similar problems explaining why
    they have not been 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.

The research summary paper is to be submitted electronically (PDF) to 
the ECSA2019 submission site 

Formatting instructions

All submissions must be formatted according to the ACM format and 
submission guidelines 

Selection Process

The Doctoral Symposium Committee using the following criteria will 
review submissions:

  * The 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, the
    novelty of the research approach, and relevance to ECSA 2019.

Doctoral Symposium proceedings will be published in the ECSA 2019 
Proceedings Companion Volume and shall appear in the ACM Digital Library.
