SUBMISSIONS

-----------

To apply for participation at the OTM Academy Doctoral Consortium, 

please provide an electronic version of your paper regarding your 

doctoral work to the cyberchair web page 

(http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/dc/2007/papers). The paper is 

restricted to 10 pages. Submissions may be handed in electronically 

in Postscript, PDF or MS Word format.

Therefore, the paper should 

 

* have the PhD student as single author (by preference), or as first   

  author with his/her (main) promoter as second author,

* formulate the research question, 

* identify the significant problems in the field of research, 

* outline the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as 

  the state of existing solutions, 

* present any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the 

  results achieved so far, 

* sketch the research methodology that is applied, 

* point out the contributions of the applicant to the problem 

  solution, and 

* state in what aspects the suggested solution is different, new or 

  better as compared to existing approaches to the problem. 

 

Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, 

correctness, and clarity. Admission is limited to 14 doctoral 

students. 

 

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically 

excludes a paper from the proceedings. To facilitate participation 

at the conference, PhD students will enjoy a reduced registration 

fee that will give them free access to all OTM conferences and 

workshops.
