International ASEA-UNINET Doctoral Symposium on Data and Software Engineering (IDoDSE 2014)

The International ASEA-UNINET Doctoral Symposium on Data and Software Engineering (IDoDSE 2014) is an international event co-located with the International Conference on Data Engineering (ICoDSE 2014), aims at providing a forum for PhD student candidates, early and late-stage PhD students, to present their research in the area of information and communication technology, especially on data and software engineering. The PhD students should show their abilities and knowledge on doing the research, working on foundations, techniques, methods and tools and get detailed feedback and advices from the senior researchers acting as mentors in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. The scope of the doctoral symposium is on information and communication technology area, especially the topics of the main ICoDSE 2014 conference (data and software engineering).

The goal of the symposium is to expose PhD students to helpful criticism before their dissertation defense. Mentors provide constructive criticism about the current status of the work, and give some advices about possible future direction and focus. The objective is to improve the research designs and rigor in doctoral dissertations, share experiences and practices, and support the networking and cooperation within the community, in particular, between the promising young researchers and senior members of the community.
