Wrap-up  

 

The 2011 Middleware Doctoral Symposium will be the eighth in a series of successful events. The symposium will provide a forum in which doctoral students can practice and demonstrate their writing and presentation skills, and to receive guidance from experienced mentors, both on the academic content of their work, and on their presentation and planning of it. An inclusive and positive atmosphere has characterized past events, with helpful criticism provided that can be acted upon before students reach their final thesis assessment. Depending on the stage of their work, advice will be provided regarding potential future research trajectories.

There will be good opportunity for meeting and sharing experiences with other students at a similar stage in their doctoral work. There will also be more general discussion on research and career planning. The mentors will include both those experienced in academia and in industry. Participation in the symposium will be based on paper submissions of up to 6 pages in ACM format. Doctoral research contributions will need to be aligned with the themes of the Middleware conference, however for those nearer the start of their research careers, early stage ideas are welcomed too. All of the submissions will be reviewed by an international program committee, so that the highest quality and/or most innovative papers will be presented at the symposium.

The accepted papers will be published by the ACM along with the papers from the Middleware 2011 workshops, and will also appear online in the ACM Digital Library.
