The ER 2016 PhD Symposium calls for original papers reporting research results, applications and system development experiences, in all topics related to the ER conference series. The symposium will offer PhD students the opportunity to present and discuss their research and to interact with other researchers, experts in the field of conceptual modeling, who could provide feedback on their research.
The papers must be authored by one or more PhD students only and should not exceed 10 pages in the LNCS conference proceedings style. Short papers (e.g., 4-5 pages) are also welcome.
A paper submitted to the ER 2016 PhD Symposium may not be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ER 2016. Submissions should be sent via e-mail to er2016-phdsymp[at]se.cs.titech.ac.jp.
Submissions will be judged based on originality, significance, technical merit, presentation quality, and relevance. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the PhD Symposium Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the PhD Symposium and made available at the conference web site during the conference period. The authors of accepted papers must register to the conference, attend the Symposium and present their paper. Failure to register or to attend will entail removal of their submission from the proceedings.
Selected papers will be reviewed by the ER 2016 Workshop Chairs for possible inclusion in the ER 2016 Workshop proceedings.
