The ISSTA 2022 Doctoral Symposium will bring together doctoral students working in the area of software testing and analysis and give them the opportunity to present and discuss their research goals, methods, and preliminary results in a constructive and international atmosphere.
The goals of the Doctoral 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;
- provide an opportunity for student participants to interact with established researchers and practitioners in the software engineering community.
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 how they propose 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.
