ICSOC 2011 PhD Symposium
The 9th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing
5-8 December 2011, Paphos, Cyprus http://www.icsoc.org
***AIM AND TARGET AUDIENCE***
The ICSOC PhD Symposium 2011 is an international forum for PhD
students working in all the areas addressed by the ICSOC
conference (http://www.icsoc.org). The goals of the ICSOC PhD
- To bring together PhD students and established researchers in
the field of service oriented computing.
- To enable PhD students to interact with other PhD students and
to stimulate an exchange of ideas, suggestions, and experiences
- To give PhD students the opportunity to present and discuss
their research in a constructive and critical atmosphere.
- To provide students with fruitful feedback and advice on their
research approach and thesis.
We particularly encourage students that are still developing
their research methodology or are somewhere in the middle of
their research program to submit to this symposium. Only active
PhD students are eligible to submit, and topics are restricted to
their doctoral work within the scope of the ICSOC conference.
The symposium in Paphos, Cyprus will be the 7th PhD Symposium of
the series held in conjunction with the ICSOC conferences in San
Francisco, USA (2010), Stockholm, Sweden (2009), Sydney,
Australia (2008), Vienna, Austria (2007), Chicago, USA (2006),
and Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2005).
***SUBMISSION FORMAT AND PROCEEDINGS***
Submitted papers should give a clear description of the PhD work
being conducted by the author of the paper. In particular, papers
- Provide a clear problem statement.
- Outline the research challenges that drive the proposed work.
- Describe the proposed solution, its expected impact, the
expected research plan, and - if available - preliminary
- Discuss the progress beyond the state of the art of the
envisioned research outcome compared to current literature and
approaches (cite key papers).
Each paper must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS
format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and must
be at most 6 pages in length (strictly enforced). Submissions
must be single-author, and the name of the supervisor(s) must be
clearly marked ("supervised by ...") under the author's name.
Papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, via the
PhD Symposium track in the ICSOC submission system. Accepted
papers will be included in the ICSOC 2011 post-conference
proceedings of satellite events, to be published by Springer as
part of the Service Science series.
***REVIEW PROCESS AND FORMAT OF THE SYMPOSIUM***
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the
PhD Symposium Program Committee. The main evaluation criteria
are: relevance to service-oriented computing, potential for
impact, quality of proposed research. The selection of papers
will be based on these criteria.
In order to stimulate the discussion during the symposium, (i)
reviewers will be asked to provide one paragraph description of
what solution they think suits the described problem and how they
would approach the research (in addition to the review); (ii)
students accepted for participation will be asked to write their
own reviews of two/three other accepted papers. As a feedback on
their reviews, students will be granted access to the respective
reviews by the Program Committee.
The symposium will operate in a workshop format, giving PhD
students the opportunity to showcase their research and to assess
the solutions proposed by the Program Committee.
