ISSTA 2019
Mon 15 - Fri 19 July 2019 Beijing, China

The ISSTA Doctoral Symposium is a forum for doctoral students working in the area of software testing and analysis to present their research goals, methods, and preliminary results. Participants will receive feedback from researchers in the software testing and analysis scientific community in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. Participants will obtain useful guidance that will help them complete their dissertation research and begin a research career in software testing and analysis. Accepted submissions will also be published as short papers in the ISSTA 2019 conference proceedings.

The ISSTA 2019 Doctoral Symposium will be co-located with ISSTA in Beijing, China. The Symposium will include a keynote address by a prominent leader in academic research. The Symposium will be closed-door, with participation restricted to the students taking part in the symposium and the members of the ISSTA 2019 Doctoral Symposium Program Committee. Participating students will have the unique opportunity to describe their research ideas and receive comments and suggestions from experienced researchers in the software testing and analysis community.

Call for Submissions


Prospective student participants should be at a stage in their research where they have already identified a research topic, but should still be at least six months away from completing their dissertation. Participants will be selected based on a four-page paper describing their proposed thesis research. The paper should state the problem their research intends to address and detail the research they propose to do to address it, including a statement of their hypotheses, a description of their approach and evaluation plans, their positioning with respect to the state of the art, and the expected improvements and benefits.


This year's symposium will feature a 2-round submission arrangement. We first welcome all participants to submit their proposals by Feb 28, 2019, a month after the technical paper submission. The submission is open until May 7, where the Phd student authors of the accepted technical papers might also be interested in presenting their research in the context of symposium to get more feedbacks. Reminders of each round will be sent separately.

Submission Instructions

A Doctoral Symposium submission must not exceed 4 pages, including all text, figures, tables, and appendices; one additional page containing only references is permitted. Submission should be in ACM Master conference format using 9-point type. For LaTeX users, this means using the acmart document class with the sigconf option (i.e., \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}).


Submission is now open.
Please submit through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=issta19ds
