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”

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
The problem to be solved and its relevance in the software
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
All submissions must be formatted according to the ACM format and
The Doctoral Symposium Committee using the following criteria will
* 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.
