Meeting Description:

Doctoral Consortium at the ACM Symposium on Document Engineering

For the second time, the ACM Symposium on Document Engineering will feature a doctoral consortium, called ProDocDocEng.

PhD students present their dissertation project and will get feedback from a panel of senior researchers as well as from the general audience.

ProDocDocEng is intended to provide constructive criticism and help PhD students in formulating their research question, deciding about methods and approaches to use, and creating further ideas. It is a good place to learn about how to conduct a dissertation project and to learn about leading edge research, the results of which might be presented at one of the next Symposia. Participants of ProDocDocEng register for DocEng 2014 and will thus be able to attend all sessions of the Symposium.

Call for Submissions

Submission Deadline: June 1, 2014 (24:00 CEST).
Notification of Acceptance: June 30, 2014.

ProDocDocEng will take place during the ACM Symposium. Each participant will be allocated 10 minutes for presentation, followed feedback and questions. There will be no publication for ProDocDocEng.

You are not required to have an accepted paper/poster/demo for DocEng 2014 to be eligible for ProDocDocEng. However, if you are author or co-author of an accepted submission, we encourage you to present your dissertation project at ProDocDocEng.

For participation, please provide a proposal, briefly outlining your dissertation topic. Please also state your affiliation or/and employer, your main supervisor and your academic background. See below for details.

PhD students accepted for ProDocDocEng are eligible to apply for Student Travel Awards, for details see:

Submission Process:

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format by June 1, 2014, 24:00 CEST, via the easychair conference system:

Submissions must not exceed two pages and must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings format

- State the working title and your name and your affiliation or/and employer in the header.

- State your main supervisor, your background (i.e., what kind of MA or MSc you obtained before, or what you are working on at the moment), when you started your PhD studies and when your thesis is
planned to be completed. If your institution has certain rules with respect to the duration of PhD studies or internal and external readers, please add this information. Please also note if you are
looking for a second/third supervisor/reader.

- Then, describe your dissertation project including your research question, related work, and the current status of your work (i.e., preliminary ideas, proposed approach, and results achieved so far).

- If you have already published on your topic, give references.

(Skip abstract and categories, and start with information on your supervisor and personal background instead.)

The language of the consortium is English. All submissions must be in English. Accepted submissions will not be published in the DocEng 2014 proceedings.

Review Process:

All submissions will be reviewed by two members of the ProDocDocEng panel (to be announced). The main evaluation criteria are: originality, significance, maturity, and clarity.

Acceptance for the Doctoral Consortium is competitive in nature and is based on the evaluation criteria above.
