Call For Papers

IEEE RE2010 – Doctoral Symposium

September 27th, 2010 - Sydney, Australia



The RE Doctoral Symposium is an international forum for PhD students working in all
areas of Requirements Engineering. The forum is intended to bring together PhD students
and give them the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructively
critical atmosphere, and to meet fellow researchers at a similar stage of their career.

More precisely, the goals of the RE Doctoral Symposium are:
* to give PhD students a chance to showcase their research,
* to provide them with feedback from a panel of senior international researchers,
* to facilitate interaction among the participants.

The doctoral symposium will operate in a workshop-like format.

Who should participate

The Doctoral Symposium welcomes PhD students who are somewhere in the middle of their
doctoral research, that is:
* students who have settled on a dissertation topic,
* and whose PhD dissertation will benefit from the feedback received.

Submission Instructions

To apply as a student participant to the Doctoral Symposium, you should prepare a sub-
mission package consisting of two parts (described below), both of which must be sub-
mitted via e-mail to

no later than May 25th, 2010, 23.59 Sydney, Australia time. The e-mail should bear the
subject "[RE2010 Doc Sym] Submission".

Part 1 — Research Abstract

Your research abstract must be formatted according to the IEEE CS proceedings format
(see the website of the IEEE Conference Publishing Service at for instructions and
templates) and must be a maximum of four pages (font size: 10pt), including all text,
references, appendices, and figures. All submissions must be in English and in
PDF format.

The research abstract should cover:
* Technical question - clearly formulate the technical problem to be solved.
* Motivation - justify the importance of the problem.
* State of the art - describe what existing work your research builds upon
(citing key publications), and also briefly describe any existing solutions
that have been developed or are currently being developed (citing key pub-
lications) and why they do not solve the problem.
* Proposed solution - sketch the proposed technical solution.
* Contributions - point out your (existing and planned) contributions to the so-
lution of the problem, and state in what aspects the suggested solution is
different, new or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
* Research methods - indicate the methods you are using or will use to carry out
any empirical research to validate your solution.
* Progress - describe the progress made in solving the stated problem and propose
a plan to complete the research. The plan should include your strategy for eval-
uating your work and presenting credible evidence of your results
to the research community.

The research abstract should include the title of your work, your name, affiliation,
email address, postal address, personal website, and a one paragraph short summary in
the style of an abstract for a regular paper. Submissions should contain no proprietary
or confidential material and should cite no proprietary or confidential publications.

Part 2 — Letter of Recommendation

Ask your (main) dissertation advisor for a letter of recommendation.
This letter should include:
* your name,
* a candid assessment of the current status of your dissertation research,
* an expected date for dissertation submission.

The letter should be in PDF format and should be sent directly by your
advisor via e-mail to

The e-mail should have the subject "[RE2010 Doc Sym] Recommendation".

Attending RE2010

If you are accepted as a student participant at the Doctoral Symposium, you will prob-
ably also wish to attend the Requirements Engineering conference.
A number of scholarships are available and allow students to attend the conference in
return for acting as a student volunteers. These are offered by the organising
committee. The conference organising committee will give priority to applications from
student participants at the Doctoral Symposium. If you wish to be considered for a vol-
unteer scholarship, you are encouraged to apply immediately after you receive notice of
your acceptance as a participant in the Doctoral Symposium.
