Contributions to the Middleware 2019 PhD Workshop will appear in a

symposium, which may require the preparation of a poster for the 
symposium and

for the main conference.

Doctoral students that submit their work to this symposium are strongly

encouraged to apply for student travel grants to attend Middleware 2019.

Students participating in the doctoral symposium will be given priority
