The Doctoral Symposium at the 31st IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’23) aims to bring together doctoral candidates and experienced researchers working in the fields of requirements engineering. This track provides an opportunity for the PhD students to present their research work in progress to the panel of internationally renowned RE expert researchers and academic and receive constructive feedback. The track will provide a highly interactive and collegial format for the doctoral candidates.

The schedule for Doctoral Symposium will be announced soon in CFP.

Call for Participation

The Doctoral Symposium welcomes any Ph.D. student who has already settled on a dissertation topic in the Requirements Engineering area and whose Ph.D. research will benefit from external feedback. Such a student is typically in the first half of the research towards the Ph.D. dissertation.

Evaluation Criteria

The Doctoral Symposium co-chairs will select participants using the following three criteria:

  • The quality and potential of the research and its relevance to Requirements Engineering,
  • The quality of the Doctoral Symposium paper, and
  • The stage of the research and its suitability for the Doctoral Symposium.
The Doctoral Symposium papers of the selected participants will be published in the conference proceedings.

Doctoral Symposium Panel

The membership of the panel will be determined after we know who is planning to attend RE’23. But the Panel will consist of renowned senior people in the field who have experience supervising research. The participants will be announced in due course.

Cost of Participation

Students who have been accepted to the Doctoral Symposium must register at regular student rates and must attend the Doctoral Symposium in person.
