CAiSE Doctoral Consortium 2008
17th June 2008, Montpellier, France (held in conjunction with CAiSE08)
Second Call for Papers
The CAiSE Doctoral Consortium 2008 is an international forum for PhD students working in the areas addressed by the CAiSE conference. The forum is intended to bring together PhD students and give them the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructively critical atmosphere. The consortium will operate in a workshop format, giving PhD students an opportunity to showcase their research and providing them with feedback from senior international researchers. We particularly encourage students that are somewhere in the middle of their research to submit to this workshop.
The goals of the Doctoral Consortium event are
The CAiSE Doctoral Consortium 2008 will be attended by prominent researchers in the field of information systems who will actively participate in and contribute to the discussions. The workshop in Montpellier will be the 15th Doctoral Consortium of a series held in conjunction with the CAiSE conferences in Utrecht (1994), Jyväskylä (1995), Heraklion (1996), Barcelona (1997), Pisa (1998), Heidelberg (1999), Stockholm (2000), Interlaken (2001), Toronto (2002), Klagenfurt/Velden (2003) Riga/Latvia (2004), Porto (2005), Luxembourg (2006) and Trondheim (2007).
The submitted paper must give a clear description of the PhD work being conducted by author of the paper, and in particular:
However, the paper need not be structured to answer those questions directly, but may instead follow the format of a standard conference paper. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee with respect to overall quality of presentation, the potential for future impact of the proposed PhD research on the field of Information Systems Engineering, and the likely benefit to the student of attending the consortium.
To apply for participation at the Doctoral Consortium, please send a short paper describing your doctoral work to Peter McBrien email@example.com, with a copy to: ftoumani at isima.fr (replace ` at ' with '@' to get email address).
Submissions must be made electronically, in PDF format by the deadline stated, and the paper must conform to the Springer's LNCS format. The paper is restricted to 4000 words (approximately 8 pages). Submissions must be single-author, but the name of the supervisor should also be mentioned within the paper. The accepted paper will be published on the CEUR Workshop Electronic Proceedings Series.
