                 Automated Software Engineering - ASE'2000

                            Doctoral Symposium

                           September 11th, 2000
                             Grenoble, France


                           Call for Participation

The ASE'2000 Doctoral Symposium is intended to bring together PhD students
working on foundations, techniques, tools and applications of automated
software engineering technology, and give them the opportunity to present
and to discuss their research in a constructive and international
atmosphere. The goals of the symposium are:

   * To provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants' current
     research, and guidance on future research directions,
   * To develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of
     collaborative research,
   * To contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
     researchers and conference events.

The Doctoral Symposium will be held one day before the main conference, on
September 11th. Selected students will present their work and receive
constructive feedback from a panel of advisors and other Doctoral Symposium
students. Besides scientific matters, the students will also have the
opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and
performing research as a young professional in automated software

Moreover, during the ASE conference itself, a session will be
organized where the students presenting at the symposium will also be
able to present their work to all the conference attendees.

The ASE'2000 Doctoral Symposium has the same scope as the main conference.
Topics include but are not restricted to:

   * Automated software specification
   * Automated software design and synthesis
   * Category-theoretic approaches
   * Computer-supported cooperative work
   * Domain modeling
   * Knowledge acquisition
   * Maintenance and evolution
   * Process and workflow management
   * Program understanding
   * Re-engineering
   * Requirements engineering
   * Reuse
   * Software architectures
   * Testing
   * Tutoring, help, documentation systems
   * Human computer interaction
   * Verification and validation


To apply for participation at the symposium, you should submit an abstract
of your doctoral work to the symposium organizers (see below). Only
electronic submissions will be accepted. All submissions must be in either
PDF or PostScript form. Abstracts should be less than 3000 words, and

   * clearly identify the research question you are addressing,
   * outline the significant problems in the field of research and the
     current solutions,
   * present the preliminary ideas and state the proposed approach clearly,
   * present the contributions of the applicant and the results of the

In addition, you should provide a (short) letter (possibly e-mail) of
recommendation from your dissertation advisor. The letter must include an
assessment of the current status of your thesis research, and an expected
date for dissertation submission. The Doctoral Symposium is intended for
students who have not yet completed their dissertation research, and do not
expect to write up their dissertation before the conference. If you are
already writing your dissertation, or expect to be substantially done by
the time of the Symposium, we encourage you to submit your work as a full
paper to a future ASE conference. Note that advisors of student presenters
will not be allowed to attend their student's presentations.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Doctoral Symposium advisors panel, and
selected for inclusion in the symposium on the basis of originality,
technical merit, presentation quality, and relevance to the conference

Proceedings will be provided, that will include all accepted papers at the
Doctoral Symposium. The proceedings will also be available on-line on the
ASE web site.

Financial Support

Travel scholarships may be available for some or all students presenting
at the Doctoral Symposium, contingent on the availability of funding.
Quality of the submitted work will be a factor in allocating any
scholarships. All presenting students will receive free registration, and
will be expected to work at the registration tables during the conference
in return.
