21st European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems (ADBIS 2017): Fourth Call for Doctoral Consortium

by George Angelos Papadopoulos, March 19, 2017

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a forum where PhD students can present
their research ideas, confront them with the scientific community, receive
feedback from mentors, and tie cooperation bounds. Students will receive
inspiration from their peers and will have a chance to discuss their research
objectives with senior members of the community in the context of an
established international conference.

The DC session will take place on September 24, in parallel with the
workshop sessions. Each participant will present her/his work, followed by
a discussion with senior researchers.

21st European Conference on Advances in Databases

and Information Systems


ADBIS 2017


Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus


24 - 27 September, 2017


http://cyprusconferences.org/adbis2017/consortium.html



The internationally recognized ADBIS conference already for 21 years is

gathering researchers and practitioners around topics related to databases,

data processing, and information systems, in general. The conference is run

in Europe but attracts researchers from all over the world. The 21st ADBIS

conference will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus. The conference is accompanied

by satellite events, including doctoral consortia and workshops. 



DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM


The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a forum where PhD students can present

their research ideas, confront them with the scientific community, receive

feedback from mentors, and tie cooperation bounds. Students will receive

inspiration from their peers and will have a chance to discuss their research

objectives with senior members of the community in the context of an

established international conference.


The DC session will take place on September 24, in parallel with the

workshop sessions. Each participant will present her/his work, followed by

a discussion with senior researchers.



ELIGIBILITY


We seek PhD students who have either determined the direction of their

thesis research (probably with some preliminary results already published),

but who still have substantial work to complete, or PhD student participants

who are in the early stages of their dissertation year. It is not required to

have a paper accepted for the main conference in order to participate in

the DC.



SUBMISSIONS


To apply to the DC, please submit a single-authored paper (which will

appear in the proceedings of DC), accompanied by a short email from the

thesis advisor stating support for your participation in the DC, describing

the current status of the thesis research, and giving your expected date of

graduation.


The papers for DC should be at most 12 pages in Springer format (formatting

instructions can be obtained via

http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-2-793332-0) and

describe the state of the whole PhD project, rather than a specific completed

result. The paper should outline the objectives, the problem, state of the art,

results obtained so far, and what is still to be done in the frame of the PhD

project. If an author prefers to present a completed research result, the

paper should be submitted to the main conference or one of accompanying

workshops. A paper submitted to the DC may not be under review for any

other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for the DC.


Submissions should be made electronically in PDF format at CMT:

https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ADBISDC2017. In case of multiple

files, please submit a single compressed file (zip or rar). After logging into

CMT, please choose the “ADBIS 2017 Doctoral Consortium” track.



REVIEW PROCESS


Each paper submitted to the DC will be reviewed by at least two members

of the DC program committee and will be judged based on originality,

technical merit, presentation quality, and relevance. The authors of

successful submissions must take into account the reviewers’ comments

during the preparation of the final version and describe the changes in a

separate document to be submitted together with the final camera-ready

version. The program committee reserves the right to reject a paper if the

final version does not meet the requirements above.


Applications not adhering to the provided guidelines (including page limits)

will not be considered. The authors of accepted papers must register to the

conference, attend the DC and present their work.



PROCEEDINGS


The DC papers will be published by Springer, together with the ADBIS

workshops proceedings, in the Advances in Intelligent Systems and

Computing series.
