Call for Doctoral Consortium at WWW2013 Conference
In conjunction with the 22st International World Wide Web Conference, May 13
– 17, 2013, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: , the
Doctoral Consortium of www2013 provides an excellent opportunity both for
the beginners as well as the senior PhD students to present their ideas,
receive feedback on their work, explore issues of academic and research
careers with experienced researchers in the field and build relationship
with other PhD students working in research areas related to the World Wide
Web . The symposium welcomes submissions by PhD candidates working on the
topics of www2013. You can consult the list of www2013 topics.
Eligibility: The Doctoral Consortium is open to all PhD Students. PhD
Students at the beginning of their work are particularly welcome when they
have a specific research proposal with a well-defined problem statement and
preliminary results and ideas about the solution that they want to discuss.
PhD students in a more advanced stage of their work should still have a
sufficient time before completing their dissertation to be able to benefit
from the symposium experience. 
Submission guidelines: Submissions should be written based on the following
structure, which focuses on the key methodological components required for a
sound research synthesis:
·        Problem: describe the core problem of the PhD and motivate its
·        State of the art: describe relevant related work
·        Proposed approach: present the approach taken and motivate how this
is novel with respect to existing works
·        Methodology: sketch the methodology that is (or will be) adopted
and, in particular, the approach to be taken for evaluating the results of
the work
·        Results: describe the current status of the work and any results
that have been reached so far
·        Conclusions and future work: conclude and specify the major items
of future work.
Submissions must be no longer than 5 pages and must be formatted in the
style of the www2012 submissions (which is based on the ACM proceedings
style). More information on the style files can be found at the WWW 2013
main website. Papers must be in PDF (Adobe’s Portable Document Format)
format and must be submitted electronically.
Submissions must be single-author, on the topic of the doctoral work. The
name of the supervisor must be clearly marked (« supervised by … ») on the
paper, under the author’s name.
Selection process: All submissions will be reviewed by the Doctoral
Consortium Committee composed of experienced researchers, who can provide
feedback and suggest future research directions. The Program committee will
select papers for oral and poster presentations.
The Doctoral Consortium Proceedings including all accepted papers will be
included in the same USB with the proceedings of the main research tracks of
the www2013 conference to be distributed to all attendees, made available on
the Conference Website, and available through the ACM Digital Library.
