18th Doctoral Symposium and PhD Students Workshop
July 7 or July 8, 2008,
The main goals of the event are:
1. to allow PhD students to practice clearly writing and
effectively presenting their research proposal;
2. to get constructive feedback from other researchers;
3. to build bridges for potential research collaboration;
4. to contribute to the conference goals through interaction
with other researchers at the main conference.
The 18th edition of the Doctoral Symposium and PhD Workshop will be held as
part of ECOOP 2008 in Paphos, Cyprus. As the name suggests, this is a
two-session event: a Doctoral Symposium and a PhD Students Workshop. The final
date will be determined soon, and is being scheduled to minimize conflicts with
co-located events. The date will be posted on the website when it is finalized.
This is a full-day event of interactive presentations. The first half is
dedicated to the Doctoral Symposium, the second half to the PhD Students
Workshop. The academic panel will also give short talks about a variety of
research-related topics. Besides the formal presentations, there should be
plenty of opportunities for informal interactions during lunch and dinner.
- Paper submission deadline: April 1, 2008.
- Notification of acceptance: April 30, 2008.

"The ECOOP Doctoral Symposium was a remarkable event. It was an honor to get
feedback on my personal thesis topic from such well-established researchers in
the field. Their comments not only encouraged me to continue with my thesis
work but also gave me valuable feedback on how to refine my concrete topic and
bring the overall topic into shape. In addition, I found the other students'
talks to be some of the most interesting ones at ECOOP. Some of them were very
inspiring even for my own work. Overall, my participation in the symposium will
certainly have a great positive effect on my thesis. Apart from that it was a
fun day which made me meet many interesting people."
