REFSQ 2013 will host a Doctoral Symposium for PhD students whose research area includes elements of Requirements Engineering. The goals of the REFSQ 2013 Doctoral Symposium are:
- to provide PhD students in the early stages of their research with an opportunity to survey the field and get a feeling for what their colleagues are working on.
- to provide PhD students at a more advanced stage with an opportunity to present their plans and early results.
- to provide all participant students with advice and suggestions from a panel of senior researchers.
- to facilitate interaction among all the participants.
Following the time-honoured tradition of REFSQ, the Symposium will revolve around structured presentations and matching discussions, with ample time devoted to comments from the floor. A number of senior researchers will attend the event. Authors of sufficiently advanced proposals will be invited to prepare a poster for the main conference.
