The OnTheMove Academy Doctoral Consortium will be kicked off and rounded off by a discussion of general questions related to Ph.D. research. They include the following aspects: 

* problem formulation, 
* problem analysis, 
* research methodology,. 
* writing a thesis, 
* evaluating the innovative contribution of a thesis,
* academic careers.

SUBMISSIONS
-----------
To apply for participation at the OnTheMove 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/phd/2008/papers). The paper 
is restricted to 10 pages. Submissions may be handed in electronically in Postscript, PDF or MS Word format. 

The paper must specifically address the doctoral student's thesis! 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 OnTheMove conferences and workshops.
