ICWE 2009 - Call for Doctoral Consortium Papers
The ICWE Doctoral Consortium will take place in conjunction with the Ninth International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2009), to be held in San Sebastian, Spain, from June 24 to 26, 2009. It aims to provide PhD students an opportunity to discuss their research in Web Engineering in an international forum, and with a panel of well-known experts in the field. Additionally it will host several invited talks both to serve as motivation for students and to address their topics of interest.
The aims of the Doctoral Consortium are to:
- provide PhD students with a welcoming atmosphere to present their research, receive useful feedback from senior researchers, and exchange ideas and experiences with other students
- help PhD students develop their research questions, methodology and research plan
- support a new generation of researchers
PhD students carrying out research in Web Engineering are invited to submit a position paper for the Doctoral Consortium session, to be reviewed by the Consortium’s program committee. The criteria used for accepting a paper include: potential quality of the research, contribution of the work to the field of Web Engineering, originality of the work and overall quality of the position paper.
Students who are currently working on, or have already prepared their PhD proposals, are encouraged to submit papers to the Consortium.
Accepted position papers will be presented during the ICWE 2009 conference, at the Doctoral Consortium session. We also encourage students who are at the start of their PhD or who are in a Master Program, to attend the Doctoral Consortium session since they can also benefit from the discussions that will take place during the session.
The author of the best proposal will be granted with a free registration to ICWE 2009.
