Call for Submissions

The ICSE Doctoral Symposium provides doctoral students an opportunity to interact with their colleagues working on foundations, techniques, tools, and applications of software engineering.

The goals of the symposium are to:

  • provide the participants independent and constructive feedback on their current research and future research directions;

  • develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research; and

  • provide an opportunity for student participants to interact with established researchers and practitioners in the software engineering community.

Who should participate

Students should consider participating in the Doctoral Symposium if they are at least nine months away from completing their dissertation at the time of the event, but after having settled on a research area or thesis topic.

Submission categories

There are two submission categories:

  • Early PhD submissions. These are aimed at students in the first years of their PhD, that have no publications that are core to their PhD and that are looking for early feedback on how to continue their PhD. Accepted submissions will appear as two page summaries in the proceedings, students will be invited to present a poster at the symposium and may have the opportunity to give a short talk to the symposium attendees depending on the available time.

  • Late PhD submissions. These are aimed at students that are in their last years of their PhD and that have results that they wish to present at the symposium. Accepted submissions will appear as four page summaries in the proceedings, students will be invited to present a poster at the symposium and to give a talk to the symposium attendees.

Submissions

Each student’s Doctoral Symposium submission consists of two elements:

  1. A letter of recommendation from the student’s dissertation advisor. The letter should be sent by e-mail directly to the Doctoral Symposium Chairs (icse2022ds@easychair.org). The letter of recommendation must include an assessment of the current status of the research and an expected date for the completion of the dissertation.

  2. A short paper describing the student’s dissertation research. This paper has to be authored only by the student.

For late PhD submissions, the paper should be 4 pages long (one more page containing only references is permitted) and should clearly state:

a) the problem to be solved in the student’s research; justify why this problem is important and make clear that previous research and related work has not yet solved that problem,

b) the research hypothesis or claim,

c) the expected contributions of the research, including a discussion of related work,

d) how the student plans to evaluate the results and to present credible evidence of the results to the community,

e) a description of the results achieved so far, and

f) the planned timeline for completion.

For early PhD submissions, the paper should be 2 pages (one more page containing only references is permitted) and should include all items above from (a) to (d) and not include (e) nor (f).

Please note that the ICSE DS does NOT require double-anonymous review.

Submissions can be made via the Doctoral Symposium submission site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icse2022ds). We encourage submitters to upload their paper early and to properly enter potential conflicts for reviewing.

Formatting

All submissions must conform to the ICSE 2022 formatting and submission instructions available at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template for both LaTeX and Word users. LaTeX users must use the provided acmart.cls and ACM-Reference-Format.bst without modification, enable the conference format in the preamble of the document (i.e., \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}), and use the ACM reference format for the bibliography (i.e., \bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format}). The review option adds line numbers, thereby allowing referees to refer to specific lines in their comments.

All submissions must be written in English. All submissions should be made accessible to people with disabilities. Guidelines (from the folks at SIGACCESS) can be found here: https://assets21.sigaccess.org/creating_accessible_pdfs.html.

Review process

Submissions will be reviewed by members of the Doctoral Symposium Committee. Participants will be selected on the basis of their anticipated contribution to the Doctoral Symposium goals as well as the potential benefit to the participants. Among the criteria that will be considered in reviewing submissions are:

  • the potential quality of the research and its relevance to software engineering,

  • the stage of the research; see the Section “Who should participate” above, and

  • the diversity of backgrounds, research topics, and approaches.

Attendance

Authors of submissions selected for participation will have the opportunity to present their work during the Doctoral Symposium and to have a camera-ready version of their papers published in a companion volume to the ICSE 2022 Conference Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Selected participants will receive feedback both from a panel of experts and from other Doctoral Symposium participants. The participants will also have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and performing research in software engineering.

To facilitate detailed feedback to the participants, attendance to the Doctoral Symposium is by invitation only, limited to the participants and the Doctoral Symposium Committee. The Doctoral Symposium will be held virtually on May 9, 2022. The presentation will be delivered virtually using Zoom (further information will be provided soon).

Important Dates

  • Deadline for submissions: November 19, 2021

  • Notification of acceptance: January 20, 2022

  • Camera-ready copy of paper due: February 11, 2022

  • DS Presentations and Keynote: May 9, 2022

If there are queries regarding the CFP, please contact the ICSE DS 2022 chairs (Filomena Ferrucci, Zhi Jin, and Nenad Medvidović): icse2022ds@easychair.org
