In 2018, ECOOP and ISSTA will have a joint Summer School that aims at encouraging graduate students and senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in research on topics related to both conferences. The School brings together leading researchers in programming languages, object-orientation, software testing, analysis, and teaching from academia and industry to provide technical sessions on important research and mentoring sessions on how to prepare for a research career. The School aims to engage students in a process of imagining how they might contribute to our research community. We especially encourage women and under-represented minority students to attend. The Summer School lectures are restricted to registered students.
Students who register to the summer school will be able to attend the Doctoral Symposium, a special introductory session to research in the field, and the Summer School lectures that will be spread throughout the week. Each lecture is between 100 and 200 minutes long and is free to all registered participants. The lectures run concurrently to the technical sessions. Students will get preferential seating. Each student will be assigned a senior mentor, another student who is already active in research, the mentor will help students navigate the conference.
The organizers have secured limited funding to help students attend the event. Please register as soon as the application is available online, and include a budget that describes how much you would need to be able to come to the summer school. We encourage all the students applying to the summer school to register for Student Volunteer positions.
