Doctoral Symposium

REFSQ2012 will host a Doctoral Symposium for PhD students whose research area includes elements of Requirements Engineering.

The Symposium is intended to bring together PhD students, facilitate the establishment of links among them and with senior researchers, and give students the opportunity to present and discuss their research among colleagues in a constructively critical atmosphere. A number of senior researchers will attend the event.

The goals of the REFSQ2012 Doctoral Symposium are:

  • to provide PhD students in the early stages of their research with an opportunity to survey the field and get a feeling for what their colleagues are working on;
  • to provide PhD students at a more advanced stage with an opportunity to present their plans and early results;
  • to provide all participant students with advice and suggestions from a panel of senior researchers,
  • to facilitate interaction among the participants.

Following the time-honoured tradition of REFSQ, the Symposium will revolve around structured presentations and matching discussions, with ample time devoted to comments from the floor. Authors of sufficiently advanced proposals will be invited to prepare a poster for the main conference.
