Symposium Overview

ICSR 2013 will host a Doctoral Symposium. The goal is to bring together doctoral students working in the area of software reuse and to provide feedback on their current and proposed research. Software engineering works that are related to software reuse are also welcome. Doctoral students researching the use of reuse in the development of critical systems are particularly encouraged to submit. Participants will be asked to prepare a presentation including a discussion of the main research challenges, solution directions, results obtained thus far, evaluation plan, and research plan towards the completion of the Ph.D. studies. It must be limited to twenty minutes and slides are strongly encouraged. An expert panel composed of software reuse researchers will provide feedback to help students shape their work.

Accepted papers will appear in the ICSR Proceedings.
