====DEBS23 - Doctoral Symposium — Call for Papers====

* Deadline: May 10th, 2023
* Date of Notification: May 20th, 2023
* Conference: June 27th – 30th June, 2023

The DEBS 2023 Doctoral Symposium welcomes submissions from doctoral
students who are undertaking research relevant to the DEBS 2023 conference.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to: Distributed and event-based
computing within, e.g., software systems, distributed systems, distributed
data processing, data management, dependability, knowledge management,
networking, programming languages, security and software engineering;
Domain-specific topics within event-based computing: e.g., real-time
analytics, mobile computing, social networking, pervasive, green computing
and ubiquitous computing, sensor networks, user interfaces, big data
processing, spatio-temporal processing, cloud computing, edge computing,
peer-to-peer computing, embedded systems, stream reasoning, and RDF stream
processing; Enterprise-related topics: e.g., complex event detection,
enterprise application integration, real-time enterprises and web services
Relevant research topics within the Internet of Things. Submission
Guidelines Doctoral symposium papers should describe the problem addressed
as part of the PhD work, explain its importance, discuss the limitations of
existing solutions and give some indication of steps taken towards a
solution. There should be enough substance to stimulate discussion at the
symposium, but the work does not need to be complete. We thus encourage
submissions from students both at early and late stages of their doctoral
work. Submissions should be written based on the following structure, which
focuses on the key methodological components required for a sound research
synthesis: Problem Statement: What is the core problem you are studying
during your PhD? Why is it relevant? How valuable are the results if you
find a solution to the problem (external validity)? Research
approach/Methodology: What methodology are you following for investigating
your research questions? How good is the method for obtaining findings
(internal validity)? Examples of methods: (i) Data science, (ii)
Macro-Meso-Micro Research Question, (iii) Action Research Research setting:
What are your research questions? Which hypotheses are you going to
investigate? (Noting that hypotheses must be falsifiable!) What assumptions
are you making? State of the art / Related work: Who has worked on your
problem (or a similar one) in the past? What are the main differences
between existing research and yours? How and why is your research novel
concerning the existing state of the art? The authors can decide whether to
include a state-of-the-art section before the approach or a comparative
related work section after their approach. Research approach: What is the
proposed solution to the problem statement? How does it answer the research
questions? Evaluation plan: How are you going to evaluate your research?
Which datasets will you use? Are you using any established benchmarks? Have
you reached any result so far? Conclusions and reflections: What is the
current status of your research? What are the main challenges you are
facing? Why do you think your research will be successful? Submissions must
be no longer than 4 pages and must adhere to the two-column "sigconf" ACM
conference proceeding style. Templates and examples in LaTeX and various
versions of Microsoft Word are available for download from the ACM Master
Article Template web pages at www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template.
Papers must be in PDF (Adobe’s Portable Document Format) format and must be
submitted electronically. Submissions must be single-author, on the topic
of the doctoral work. The name of the supervisor must be clearly marked
(“supervised by …”) on the paper, under the author’s name. All accepted
submissions must be presented in person at the symposium. Distinguished
scientists will be present to give feedback and advice to the students.
During the event, presentations from authors can involve media other than
traditional PowerPoint-style slideshows. Please note that in-person
attendance is requested for the presenters of Doctoral Symposium.
Submission Submit your paper using HotCRP: debs23dw.hotcrp.com. If you have
any questions, please contact the Doctoral Symposium Co-Chairs, Riccardo
Tommasini (riccardo.tommasini<at>liris.cnrs.fr) and Senjuti Basu Roy
(senjuti.basuroy<at>njit.edu) or the General Chair Valerio Schiavoni
(valerio.schiavoni<at>unine.ch). A short summary of each accepted project
will be included in the published conference proceedings, but students are
free to submit their work elsewhere in parallel, also. An expert panel will
judge the best submission and separately the best presentation by
participating students. Important Dates Deadline: May 10th, 2023 Date of
Notification: May 20th, 2023 Conference: June 27th – 30th June, 2023
