*********  About the Doctoral Symposium  **********

The second IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing and 
Self-Organizing Systems (ACSOS) provides a forum to share the latest 
research results, ideas and experiences in autonomic, self-adaptive, and 
self-organizing systems.

ACSOS was founded in 2020 as a merging of the two long-running IEEE ICAC 
and SASO conferences, bringing together the two leading communities in 
this research space.

The Doctoral Symposium provides an international forum for PhD students 
working in ACSOS-related research fields to present their work to a 
diverse audience of leading experts in the field, to gain both 
insightful feedback and discussion points around their research as well 
as the invaluable experience of presenting new research to an 
international audience. The symposium has a strong history, though ICAC 
and SASO, of connecting young researchers with highly experienced peers 
to forge connections, which can last for many years.

PhD students are invited to submit a two-page abstract, with another 
page for references, which should use the below format to describe the 
key motivation of their research, the major contribution (either actual 
or expected, depending on the research stage), discuss their 
methodology, and present the current status of the research. Authors of 
accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their work both at 
the doctoral symposium and in brief at the main conference itself, 
offering a very wide audience for their research.

Students at any stage of their PhD are welcome to submit. Reviews, 
feedback, and expectations will be adapted appropriately to the relative 
stage of each submission.

**************  Mentoring Programme  **************

This year the Doctoral Symposium will employ a mentoring program, in 
which every author of an accepted paper will be paired with an 
experienced mentor from the community. Mentors will help introduce the 
student to the community, offer extended discussion of their research 
objectives and career opportunities, and will host their students 
throughout the event to help gain the best experience from an 
international conference.

************  Submission Instructions  ************

Submissions should use the IEEE Computer Society Press format 
(https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html) and should 
be a maximum of 2 pages long, with an extra page permitted for references.

Authors should submit their abstracts to EasyChair at

Because the doctoral symposium focuses on the work of specific PhD 
students, please note that only single-author submissions are permitted, 
with the name of the PhD supervisors included below that of the author.

All submissions should have the following specific structure:

Motivation and challenges: explain why this research is important, and 
identify the key research question and challenges that have yet to be 
addressed by the community - including limitations of current approaches

Contribution and objectives: present the main contribution of the 
research, in a way that a non-expert could clearly understand, then 
present the detailed objectives of your research, highlighting why your 
work is novel in comparison to existing research

Methodology and preliminary results: present the methodology of your 
approach, discussing why it is suitable to your contribution, and also 
present any preliminary results if you have them, including a statement 
about the current status of your work

Future work and research plan: summarise your intended future work, and 
provide a schedule of milestones with a discussion of their feasibility

Authors of accepted submissions will prepare a final (camera-ready) 
version of their abstract, taking into account reviewers’ feedback. 
Doctoral symposium papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore as part of 
the ACSOS proceedings and will be made available in the IEEE Digital
