Doctoral Symposium
in conjunction with the GII Doctoral School on Advances in Databases
September 18-19, 2009
Hotel S. Michele, Cetraro - Italy


The Doctoral Symposium intends bringing together PhD students
in Computer Engineering and in Computer Science providing them
the opportunity to present and discuss their research in
progress in a constructively critical atmosphere, and to meet
other researchers at a similar stage of their career.

More precisely, the goals of the symposium are:

- give PhD students the chance to illustrate their research
- provide them with valuable feedback on behalf of senior researchers
- facilitate their interaction with other researchers
- provide guidelines on how to write a PhD Dissertation
- attend the Summer School

The Symposium is intended for young researchers that have not
completed their research or written their dissertation before
the Summer School. Participants are doctoral students,
preferably at a mid-point in their dissertation work (i.e. are
at least 12 months from defending their dissertation, but have
at least a preliminary research design), who will present their
work at the symposium and receive feedback from the symposium
advisors and other attendees.

The Symposium will be held in conjunction with the Doctoral
School on Advances in Databases.


Students willing to participate are asked to submit a paper
between 3-6 pages containing: an introduction to the research
(research question which formulates the technical problem
faced, motivation of the problem, background and existing work
the research builds on along with existing solutions in
literature); the proposed technical solution (existing and
planned contributions to the solution of the problem,
innovative aspects of the solution); research methods used or
that will be used in the research; current status of the
research and results thus far; progress and plan to complete
the research.

Also, students should provide a reference letter in PDF format
on behalf of their dissertation advisor.

Contributions should be written in English, in PDF format,
using the Springer LNCS style available at
and sent to giischool2009 a si.deis.unical.it.
Papers will undergo a review process on behalf of the Doctoral
Symposium Committee which will select participants according to
the potential quality of the research and its relevance and the
stage of the research.


Paper submission deadline: June 29, 2009
Author notification: July 15, 2009.
Camera-Ready due: August 24, 2009.
