Doctoral Consortium Eligibility and Application Process

In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address specifically doctoral work.

Therefore, the following elements have to be addressed in the papers:

  • A clear formulation of the research question.
  • An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.
  • An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state of existing solutions.
  • A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far.
  • A sketch of the applied research methodology.
  • A description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem solution.
  • A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.

 The maximum length of DC submissions should not exceed 6 pages. Students are kindly requested to make use of the supplied Springer template:

Papers accepted to the Doctoral Consortium will be eligible for publication in CEUR Workshop proceedings:

In a separate sheet include:

  • A statement of the particular issues/problems in your dissertation, research areas that you want to discuss, types of feedback that might be particularly useful,
  • A list of members of the ECTEL 2016 Program Committee who you think would be able to provide a particularly useful perspective or feedback on your work,
  • A letter of recommendation from your dissertation supervisor/advisor. It should include an assessment of the current status of your work, and an expected date for dissertation completion.

Submissions should be uploaded to:

Accepted students should prepare:

  1. An introduction of themselves and their Ph.D. project for the introductory session. Duration: 60 sec max.
  2. A 15-20 minute presentation of their Ph.D. project to be used for introducing discussion about their project and its main issues during the small group sessions.
  3. Students are also invited to prepare a poster about their Ph.D. for the EC-TEL 2014 poster session.

Submissions should be uploaded to:

All submissions will be reviewed after acceptance by at least two senior researchers and one of the accepted doctoral candidates. Additionally, two discussants, members of the doctoral consortium committee, will be appointed to each paper. Discussant comments will be followed by a plenary discussion of the paper. At the end of the consortium there will be a general discussion, including a brainstorming session about current and future research topics in the area.
