Call For Papers

Australian Software Engineering Conference 2014
Doctoral Symposium
Submission Deadline: 31 January, 2014
Notification to Author: 28 February, 2014

The aim of the ASWEC 2014 doctoral symposium is to give PhD students the opportunity to present their research to receive constructive feedback from a panel of senior researchers in software engineering. The doctoral symposium is run in a highly interactive and workshop-like format. To obtain maximum benefit from this symposium, students should consider participating after they have settled on a research topic, with a defined problem statement and some ideas about the solution that they want to discuss. Papers submitted to the doctoral symposium should not exceed 4 pages. Contents should cover: (1) Related work in the area of study, which clearly defines the gap, and the problem to be solved with a justification of its importance (2) The specific research question that arises from the identified problem (3) The proposed approach to address the research question (4) Progress in solving the stated problem. For more advanced students, papers should also describe (5) The main contribution(s) from the research work (6) The method used to carry out the research, which should include the plan for evaluating the approach and presenting evidence of the results (7) Preliminary results.

To apply as a student participant to the Doctoral Symposium the following two documents must be submitted before 31st January 2014.

Extended Research Abstract: Research abstracts must be formatted according to the CPS formatting guidelines and must not exceed 4 pages, including all text, references, appendices, and figures. Research abstracts must be in English and submitted via Easychair in PDF format.
Recommendation Letter: A letter of recommendation from your main PhD advisor that includes your name, and an assessment of the current status of your dissertation research. The letter should be in PDF format and should be sent by your advisor directly by e-mail to Doctoral Symposium Chair, Didar Zowghi ( This letter will be held confidential.

Evaluation Criteria: Participants for ASWEC Doctoral Symposium will be selected using the following criteria: (1) The quality and potential of the research and its relevance to Software Engineering (2) The stage of the research and its suitability for the Doctoral Symposium.

Doctoral Symposium Chair: Professor Didar Zowghi
