About

The goal of the ESEC/FSE 2022 Doctoral Symposium is to create a forum for PhD students working in the area of software engineering. Participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their doctoral research with senior researchers in the software engineering community, in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. Specifically, the symposium aims to:

  • Provide a setting whereby students receive feedback on their doctoral research and guidance on future directions from the Doctoral Symposium Panel;
  • Foster the creation of a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research; and
  • Contribute to the conference goals through the interaction between the Symposium participants and other researchers at the main conference.

In addition to scientific matters, students will have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and performing research as a young professional in software engineering. Students should consider participating in the Doctoral Symposium after they have settled on a dissertation topic with some initial research results. Students should be at least a year from completion of their dissertation (at the time of the Symposium). The Doctoral Symposium has the same scope of technical topics as the main ESEC/FSE conference.

Goal and Scope

The goal of the ESEC/FSE 2022 Doctoral Symposium is to create a forum for PhD students working in the area of software engineering. Participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their doctoral research with senior researchers in the software engineering community, in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. Specifically, the symposium aims to:

  • Provide a setting whereby students receive feedback on their doctoral research and guidance on future directions from the Doctoral Symposium Panel;
  • Foster the creation of a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research; and
  • Contribute to the conference goals through the interaction between the Symposium participants and other researchers at the main conference.

In addition to scientific matters, students will have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and performing research as a young professional in software engineering. Students should consider participating in the Doctoral Symposium after they have settled on a dissertation topic with some initial research results. Students should be at least a year from completion of their dissertation (at the time of the Symposium). The Doctoral Symposium has the same scope of technical topics as the main ESEC/FSE conference.

Important Dates

All dates are 23:59:59 AoE (UTC-12h).

  • Submission deadline: July 14, 2022
  • Notification: Aug 18, 2022
  • Camera-ready: Sep 1, 2022

Submission

To apply as a student participating in the Doctoral Symposium, you should prepare a submission package consisting of two parts, both of which must be submitted by the submission deadline.

Part 1: Research proposal

The proposal should cover:

  • Research problem you are targeting and its importance to the field;
  • Brief survey of the background and related work;
  • Description of the proposed approach or solution;
  • Expected contributions of your research;
  • Results achieved so far;
  • Plan to evaluate your work;
  • Plan to present evidence of contribution to knowledge in the research community.

The research proposal should be submitted through the ESEC/FSE Doctoral Symposium submission web site, in a single PDF document.

At the time of submission all papers must conform to the ESEC/FSE 2022 Format and Submission Guidelines (but they do not need to be anonymized), and must not exceed four (4) pages, plus an extra page for reference only, in this format, including all text, references, appendices, and figures; submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be summarily rejected by the chair without review. The research proposal should be single-authored and include the title of your research, your name, your advisor, your email address, and a short summary in the style of an abstract for a regular paper. All submissions must be original work, and must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (see also ACM policy and procedures with respect to plagiarism).

Part 2: Letter of Support

Please ask your research advisor to submit a letter of recommendation in support of your application. This short letter must include your name, the start date of your PhD studies, an assessment of the current status of your dissertation research, and an expected date for dissertation submission. The letter must come directly from your advisor’s email address and should be sent in PDF format to the Symposium Chair (Michael Pradel, michael@binaervarianz.de) with the subject: “ESEC/FSE 2022 Doctoral Symposium Support Letter for [student name]”.

Evaluation

The Doctoral Symposium Panel will select participants using the following criteria:

  • Quality of the research proposal and its relevance to ESEC/FSE;
  • Quality of proposal presentation.

Acceptance

Accepted contributions will be included in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted contributions must register for the ESEC/FSE 2022 Doctoral Symposium and present their work there.
