The goal of the MODELS 2018 Doctoral Symposium is to provide an international forum for doctoral students to interact with their fellow students and faculty mentors working in the area of model-driven engineering. The symposium supports students by providing independent and constructive feedback about their already completed and, more importantly, planned research work. The Symposium will be attended by prominent experts in the field of model-driven engineering, who will actively participate in critical and constructive discussions.
The doctoral symposium will have the format of a one-day workshop, with presentations of the doctoral students who have their paper accepted in a peer-review process, feedback from the mentors, and plenty of time for discussion. The presentations will be open for mentors, students, and other conference participants; only supervisors of the presenters are excluded from the sessions in which their students deliver their presentation.
Submissions (exclusively authored by the doctoral student) are invited from students who have settled on a doctoral dissertation topic, but are still sufficiently far away from completion to be able to take full advantage of the given feedback.
Submissions should present research in progress that is intended to lead to a doctoral dissertation, using the following structure:
Submissions must not exceed five (5) pages plus two (2) pages for references. All submissions must conform to the sigconf template provided by ACM Template.
All papers have to be submitted electronically in PDF format. The submission page for Doctoral Symposium @MODELS’18 is through Easychair.
All submission deadlines are AoE (i.e. UTC-12).
