=======================================================================================
       2nd PHD COLLOQUIUM
a satellite event of the 28th International Conference on Conceptual
Modeling (ER 2009)
               09-12/november/2009 - GRAMADO, RS, Brazil
=======================================================================================

The ER2009 PhD Colloquium is intended to bring together PhD students working
on topics related to the ER conference series. The workshop will offer PhD
students the
opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a
constructive
and collegial atmosphere. Prominent researchers in the field of conceptual
modeling will
attend the workshop and mentor the participant students. The workshop is
co-located
with the ER2009 conference and will take place on the first conference day
(Monday,
November 9th, 2009). The Colloquium language is English.

The PhD Colloquium is intended for students who have already settled on a
specific
research proposal and have some preliminary results, but still have enough
time
remaining before submitting their dissertation so that they can benefit from
workshop
feedback. The technical scope of the PhD Workshop is the same as that of the
ER2009.

=============================
 SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
=============================

Students willing to participate in the PhD Workshop must submit an abstract
describing
their doctoral work. The abstract should not exceed 5 pages in the LNCS
conferenceproceedings
style and must cover the following aspects:

- a clear formulation of the research topic
- an outline of the significant problems in the field and their current
solutions
- a description of the proposed approach and its expected contributions
- a summary of the (expected) results, including their (proposed) evaluation
method

The abstract must be submitted electronically to both chairs of the
colloquium in PDF
format. All submissions will be acknowledged.
Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, technical merit,
presentation
quality and relevance to the workshop topics. Each paper will be reviewed by
at least
two members of the workshop program committee (PhD Chairs plus PhD mentors).

By submitting a contribution students accept that they have to register to
the
conference and attend the workshop. Failure to register or to attend will
entail removal
of their submission even if formally accepted.
