Call for Contributions
The ACM ISS Doctoral Symposium (DS) provides Ph.D. students with the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced researchers in an informal and interactive setting. Participants can expect the chance to present their dissertation research in a supportive environment and to receive constructive expert and peer feedback on their research topics and possible career paths in both academia and industry. The Symposium aims to support community building by connecting beginning and established researchers. The ideal time to apply to participate in the DS is when some progress has been made in Ph.D. research, and a path to completion is planned but could benefit from outside opinions and refinement.
All research topics suitable for the ACM ISS Conference and associated workshops are appropriate for the DS. The DS chairs aim to achieve diversity among the student participants, including diversity across research groups and geographical areas. Refer to previous years’ proceedings for examples: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3280295
All Ph.D. students are welcome to apply regardless of whether they are presenting at the main conference or not. Each submission will be reviewed by the DS chairs to assess its suitability for the DS, as well as additional expert reviewers when necessary. Authors of accepted submissions will present their work in a dedicated session and registration will be free for PhD students who do not present any other papers during the conference.
