For the second time, the ACM Symposium on Document Engineering will feature a doctoral consortium, called ProDoc@DocEng. Phd students present their dissertation project and will get feedback from a panel of senior researchers as well as from the general audience.
ProDoc@DocEng 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 ProDoc@DocEng register for DocEng 2014 and will thus be able to attend all sessions of the Symposium.
ProDoc@DocEng will take place during the Symposium. Each participant will be allocated 10 minutes for presentation, followed feedback and questions. There will be no publication for ProDoc@DocEng.
You are not required to have an accepted paper/poster/demo for DocEng 2014 to be eligible for ProDoc@DocEng. However, if you are author or co-author of an accepted submission, we encourage you to present your dissertation project at ProDoc@DocEng.
For participation, please provide a proposal, briefly outlining your dissertation topic.
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
(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 Accepted submissions will not be published in the DocEng 2014 proceedings.
All submissions will be reviewed by two members of the ProDoc@DocEng 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.
