The submissions should address specifically doctoral work of the student and the following elements are recommended:
  • A clear description of the research question and its significance.
  • A clear description of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the existing solutions.
  • A discussion of any proposed ideas, and the results achieved so far.
  • A clear description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem domain.
  • A discussion of why and how the suggested solution is new or better than the existing approaches to solve the problem.
The paper length should not exceed four pages. The intention of this symposium is to support and inspire Ph.D. students during their ongoing research efforts. Accepted Ph.D. papers will be published in the 2011 IEEE World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2011) proceedings.
