                             Call for Doctoral Symposium

                             - MOBILESoft 2016 -

                  3rd IEEE/ACM International Conference on
                   Mobile Software Engineering and Systems

                          Co-located with ICSE 2016
                      May 16-17, 2016, Austin, TX (USA)



     * Submission deadline: February 05, 2016
     * Notification of acceptance: February 20, 2016



The goal of the Doctoral Symposium is to provide a forum 
in which PhD students can present their work in progress. 
The symposium supports students by providing independent 
and constructive feedback about their already completed 
and, more importantly, planned research work. The 
symposium will be accompanied by prominent experts who 
will actively participate in critical discussions.

Relevant fields within Mobile Software Engineering and 
Systems include (but are not limited to):

* Verification and Validation of mobile applications and 
* Energy consumption and sustainability
* Offloading
* Mobile patterns, frameworks, and best practices
* Model driven development for mobile applications
* Security and trust
* User experience of mobile applications
* Hybrid versus native applications
* Programming environments on or for mobile devices
* Mobile development in the cloud
* Libraries and programming frameworks for mobile devices

Any topic of interest for the conferences that will take 
place within the MOBILESoft 2016 call for papers is highly 


Submissions exclusively authored by the PhD student are 
invited from students who have settled on a PhD topic. We 
do accept papers on both initial stage (first or second 
year) and mature stage (third year, or later) of research. 
The authors shall clearly indicate their stage of research 
maturity in a footnote to be added to the paper title.

Submissions are allowed via EasyChair 

Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 experts 
based on originality, significance, correctness and 
clarity. Submissions should describe research-in-progress 
that is meant to lead to a PhD dissertation, using the 
following structure:

* Title of your proposal
* Your name, affiliation, email address, and personal 
* Your advisor’s name and email address.
* Problem: The problem the research intends to solve, the 
target audience of this research, and a motivation of why 
the problem is important and needs to be solved.
* Related work: A review of the relevant related work with 
an emphasis of how the proposed approach is different and 
what advantages it has over the existing state of the art.
* Proposed solution: A sketch of the proposed solution.
* Preliminary work: A description of the work to-date and 
results achieved so far.
* Expected contributions: A list of the expected 
contributions to both theory and practice.
* Plan for evaluation and validation: A description of how 
it will be shown that the work does indeed solve the 
targeted problem and is superior to the existing state of 
the art (e.g., prototyping, industry case studies, user 
studies, experiments).
* Current status: The current status of the work and a 
planned timeline for completion.

All accepted submissions to the Doctoral Symposium at 
MobileSoft2016 will be published in the MobileSoft216 
proceedings and in both the ACM Digital Library and the 
IEEE Digital Library.

Contributions must not exceed 4 pages in ACM format.
