Monday, 8:30, full day
Chair: Fred Grossman, Pace University
The goal of the OOPSLA 2005 Doctoral Symposium is to provide useful guidance for the completion of the dissertation research and the initiation of a research career. The Symposium will provide an interactive forum for doctoral students in one of two phases in their doctoral progress.
- Apprentices: Students who are just beginning their research, are not ready to actually make a research proposal, but are interested in learning about structuring research and getting some research ideas.
- Proposers: Students who have progressed far enough in their research to have a structured proposal, but will not be defending their dissertation in the next 12 months. This 12-month stipulation is set in place because we would like for the students to have sufficient time to incorporate the advice and suggestions discussed in the symposium.
This year, the mentors are Fred Grossman (Pace University), Craig Chambers (University of Washington), Ron Frank (Pace University), Robert Kessler (University of Utah), Ole Madsen (Alexandra Instituttet A/S, Aarhus University). To provide further opportunity for discussion and feedback, doctoral symposium presenters have a poster on display during the conference and a two-page short paper published in the Conference Companion proceedings.
Due to the mentoring nature of the event, it is only open to those selected for participation.
