  Call for Ph.D. Symposium Papers

The ICSOC Ph.D. Symposium 2019 is an international forum for Ph.D.
students working in all areas related to the service-oriented computing.
It is intended to bring together Ph.D. students working on foundations,
techniques, tools, and applications of service-oriented computing, and
provide them an opportunity to present and discuss their research to an
audience of peers and senior faculty in a supportive environment, as
well as to participate in a number of plenary sessions with
service-oriented computing academics.

The goals of this Ph.D. Symposium are:

  * To provide an opportunity to meet experts from different backgrounds
    working on topics related to service-oriented computing field
  * To bring together Ph.D. students and established researchers in the
    field of service-oriented computing
  * To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the selected Ph.D.
    students on their research project, and to stimulate the exchange of
    ideas, suggestions, and experiences among participants
  * To provide the opportunity to discuss concerns about research,
    supervision, job market, and other career-related issues

We particularly encourage Ph.D. students who are still developing their
research methodology or are somewhere in the middle of their research
program to submit their preliminary results to this symposium. Topics
are restricted to their doctoral work within the scope of the ICSOC
conference. To be eligible for the Ph.D. Symposium, the candidate must
be a current doctoral student within a recognized university. Ideally,
the candidate should have at least 12 months work remaining before
expected completion, and at least 12 months of work already performed.
However, all Ph.D. students are eligible regardless of their doctoral stage.

    Important Dates

  * Submission Deadline: Extended to July 15(23:59 CEST)
  * Author Notification: July 08, 2019
  * Camera Ready Paper: July 15, 2019

    Paper submission

Submitted papers should give a clear description of the Ph.D. work. In
particular, papers must:

  * Provide a clear problem statement
  * Outline the research challenges that drive the proposed work
  * Describe the proposed solution, its expected impact, the expected
    research plan, and preliminary results
  * Discuss the progress beyond the state of the art of the envisioned
    research outcome compared to current literature and approaches (cite
    key papers)

Each paper must be formatted according to the _Springer’s LNCS Format_
<http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html> and must be at most 6
pages in length (strictly enforced). Submissions must be
single-authored, and the name of the supervisor(s) must be clearly
marked as (“supervised by …”) under the Ph.D. author name. Papers must
be submitted electronically, in PDF format, via the Ph.D. Symposium
track in the _ICSOC Submission System_
<https://www.conftool.com/icsoc2019/>. Accepted papers presented at the
Symposium will be included in the ICSOC 2019 post-conference proceedings
of satellite events, to be published by Springer as part of the Service
Science series. Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the
Ph.D. Symposium Program Committee..
