Hints for Organizing a Successful Doctoral Symposium - An Experience Report

Claudia Raibulet, Eila Ovaska

Abstract

This paper describes our joint experience in organizing a Doctoral Symposium co-located with one of the main software engineering conferences. It presents the issues we addressed during the organization of the symposium, as well as during the symposium. This paper is addressed (1) to the organizers of Doctoral Symposiums aiming to provide a recipe with the main ingredients and preparation steps and their related significance in the entire organization process, as well as (2) to the PhD students providing our feedback on the expectations, evaluation, and presentation of their contributions.
