CWE 2016 – call for PhD Symposium papers

The ICWE 2016 PhD Symposium aims to improve the research of PhD

students and broaden their perspectives by giving them the opportunity

to share and develop their research ideas in a supportive environment,

get feedback from senior members of the Web engineering community,

improve their communication skills, exchange ideas and build

relationships with other international Web engineering PhD students.

This event will bring together PhD students working on topics related

to the Web Engineering field. The goal is to provide a forum for PhD

students to present ongoing research in a collaborative environment

and share ideas with other young researchers in an international


Selected contributions will be presented in a dedicated conference

session where participants will discuss their research ideas and

results, and receive constructive feedback from an audience consisting

of their peers as well as more senior experts in the field. In

addition to that, students will be invited to participate at the

poster sessions so that they also receive comments of other

participants in the conference.

PhD students carrying out research in Web Engineering are invited to

submit a paper to the PhD Symposium, to be reviewed by the program

committee members. We particularly encourage submissions from students

who are at the last stages of their doctoral work but with sufficient

time prior to completing their dissertation, and from those who are in

the beginning stages but have a specific research proposal who can

obtain valuable feedback about their research plans.

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 paper.

All PhD Symposium papers will appear in the main conference

proceedings that will be published in Springer LNCS.
