Up-to-date information on the Doctoral Symposium can be found at

The UML'04 Doctoral Symposium is the first Doctoral symposium in the UML
Conference series. The Doctoral Symposium seeks to bring together PhD
Students working in areas related to UML and modeling in general.
Selected students will have the opportunity to present and to discuss their
research goals, methods and results within a constructive and international
atmosphere. The symposium 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 the Symposium discussions.


To apply for participation provide an abstract of your doctoral work.
Abstract should not exceed 8 pages in the LNCS conference-proceedings style
and should:

*cleary formulate the research topic
*outline the significant problems in the field and its current solutions
*present any preliminary idea, the proposed approach and the results
achieved so far
*point out the contributions of his/her work

The abstract must be submitted electronically to

All submissions must be either in PDF or PS.

The topics are the same as those of the main conference. These topics
include but are not restricted to:
*model transformations
*lessons learned from modeling
*tool support for any aspect of modeling or model use
*models in the development and maintenance process
*model evaluation, formal or informal
*model-driven engineering
*semantics of modeling languages
*domain-specific and concern-oriented modeling


Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, technical merit,
presentation quality and relevance to the conference topics. Each paper will
be reviewed by, at least, one senior reviewer and two PhD Students. Around
10 students will be accepted for presenting his/her work at the Symposium.
Participation will be open to all submitters.
