Doctoral Symposium Chairs


Goals and Scope

This symposium aims to provide a helpful environment in which selected PhD students can present and discuss their ongoing work, meet other students working on similar topics, and receive helpful advice and feedback from a panel of researchers and academics.

If you are a PhD student researching any topic that falls within the area of formal methods, you are warmly invited to submit a Research Abstract for consideration to be selected as a participant.

There will be a best presentation award. Scholarships for attendance will also be available.

Research Abstracts

Research Abstracts should be no more than 4 pages in LNCS format. Your Research Abstract should:

  • Outline the problem being addressed, its relevance, the solution you are working on, your research approach (such as your research method) and your expected contribution.
  • Contain a very brief literature survey indicating the most important references related to:
    1. the problem being addressed and/or
    2. existing solutions as appropriate.
  • Indicate your progress to date and the current stage of research.

The Research Abstract should be written by yourself as sole author, but should include references to any papers you have already published, including joint publications with your supervisor.
