Call for papers: Doctoral symposium
The goal of the Doctoral symposium is to provide a forum in
which PhD students can present their work in progress and to foster
the role of MODELS as a premier venue for research in model-driven
engineering. The symposium aims to support students by providing
independent and constructive feedback about their already completed
and, more importantly, planned research work.
The technical scope of the symposium covers all topics of
Submissions should describe research-in-progress that is meant to lead
to a PhD dissertation. The submission should stick to the following
Submissions are invited from PhD students who have settled on a PhD
topic, but are still sufficiently far away from completion to be able
to take full advantage of the given feedback (typically, this means
that, at the time of the symposium, students should be at least one
year away from completion). Submissions must be in English, no longer
than six pages in the Springer
style, and include a title and the full contact information of the
author (name, email address, and postal address). Submissions must be
- Problem: The technical problem the research intends to solve
and why it is important and needs to be solved.
- Related work: A review of the relevant related work with an
explanation of how the proposed approach is different and which
advantages it has.
- Proposed solution: A description of the proposed solution and
which other work (e.g., in the form of methods or tools) it
- Expected contributions: A list of the expected contributions.
- Current status: The current status of the work and how close to
completion it is.
- Plan for evaluation: A description of how it will be shown that
the work does indeed solve the targeted problem.
Review and evaluation
Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the program
committee using the following criteria:
- Overall quality of the submission itself (e.g., clarity,
precision (relative to the stage of the research), and adequacy of
the problem statement, the solution description, the expected
contributions, the plan for evaluation, and the review of related
- Potential quality of the (completed and proposed) research
(e.g., originality of solution and its impact) and its relevance
to the MODELS community.
