20th IEEE/ACM International Conference on
The ASE'05 Doctoral Symposium seeks to bring together PhD students working on foundations, techniques, tools and applications of automated software engineering and give them the opportunity to present and to discuss their research with researchers in the ASE community in a constructive atmosphere. Specifically, the symposium aims to provide a setting whereby students receive feedback on their research and guidance on future directions from a broad group of advisors, foster a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research, and contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and conference events.
The Doctoral Symposium will be held on November 7, two days before the main conference. Selected students will present their work and receive constructive feedback from a panel of advisors and other Doctoral Symposium students. Note that advisors of student presenters will not be allowed to attend their student's presentations. In addition to scientific matters, students will have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and performing research as a young professional in automated software engineering.

The technical scope of the Symposium is that of ASE. The Symposium will provide an opportunity for student participants to interact with other students at a similar stage in their careers, established researchers, and the broader software engineering community.
The symposium is intended for students who have not yet completed their dissertation research and do not expect to write up their dissertation before the conference. If you are already writing your dissertation, or expect to be substantially done by the time of the symposium, we encourage you to submit your work as a full paper to the ASE conference.
To apply for participation at the symposium, you should submit an abstract of your doctoral work to the symposium organizers (see below). Only electronic submissions will be accepted. All submissions must be in either PDF or PS. Abstracts should not exceed 4 pages in the ACM conference-proceedings style and should:
In addition, your dissertation advisor should provide a letter (or email) of recommendation. The letter must include an assessment of the current status of your thesis research, and an expected date for dissertation submission.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Doctoral Symposium Committee and selected for inclusion in the symposium on the basis of originality, technical merit, presentation quality, relevance to the conference topics, and stage of research. Each accepted abstract will be included in the conference proceedings.
