ER 2017 Doctoral Symposium Call For Papers
Submissions to the doctoral symposium comprise two parts: an extended abstract paper and a recommendation letter.
Part 1: Research Extended Abstract
Your extended abstract should be 5 to 8 pages long and must follow the Springer LNCS style. Each submission must be structured as an exposé, focusing on the research questions and the research design to tackle that question. PhD students should write the papers by themselves (single authored) and focus on presenting the idea behind the research in order to receive the most valuable feedback at the symposium.
Submissions to the ER 2017 Doctoral Symposium should be structured like this:
– A sound introduction to the research field – focusing on current challenges and opportunities.
– Clear specification of the research questions and the objectives.
– Brief description of related work highlighting how the proposal differentiates from prior work.
– Justification of the selected research design, focusing also on the research methodology.
– Discussion of the current status of the proposed solution. How is the proposal an improvement over the current state of the art?
– Identification of outstanding issues and a roadmap for tackling them.
Part 2: Recommendation Letter
Ask your (primary) PhD advisor for a letter of recommendation. This letter should include:
• Your name
• An assessment of the current status of your dissertation research
• The expected date for defending your dissertation
The letter should be in PDF format and should be sent directly by your advisor via e-mail to the ER 2017 Doctoral Symposium Chairs, Sourav S. Bhowmick (ASSourav@ntu.edu.sg), Stephen W. Liddle
(firstname.lastname@example.org), and Dimitris Karagiannis (email@example.com). This letter will be held confidential.
The e-mail should have the subject “ER2017-DS-Recommendation-YourLastName”.
Soon information about submission will be available.
