PhD Symposium track
ESOCC 2022 (9th European Conference and Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing)

March 22nd-24th, 2022
Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany 

*** Aims and scope ***

The ESOCC 2022 PhD Symposium is an international forum for PhD students working in the areas addressed by the ESOCC conference (which list of topics of interest is recapped at the end of this message). The main aim of the Symposium is to give PhD students an opportunity to present their research activity and perspectives, to critically discuss them with other PhD students and with established researchers in the area, and to get fruitful feedback and advices on their research activities.

PhD students working on topics related to the scope of the ESOCC conference can submit a short report providing a clear statement of the problem they intend to address including the current state of the art, motivating the interest and novelty of the underlying research challenges, demonstrating the ideas by examples, and describing the proposed research plan and expected results.

*** Submissions ***

Papers should not exceed 8 pages formatted according to the Springer LNCS proceedings guidelines. They should be first-authored by the PhD student and indicate the name of her/his supervisor(s) and their affiliation. Papers can be submitted via the EasyChair submission page of the conference (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2022), by selecting "ESOCC 2022 - PhD Symposium" track. 

Papers will be peer-reviewed by the members of the program committee. All accepted papers will appear in the post-conference proceedings devoted to the satellite events of ESOCC 2022, in the Springer CCIS series. The best student paper will also be awarded with the "Best PhD student award", which will be announced at the end of the symposium. PhD students authoring accepted papers are expected to attend the symposium to present their paper. If not, the paper will not be included in post-conference proceedings and it will not be eligible for the "Best PhD student award".
