Date of Symposium: Tuesday, October 4, 2005
The Doctoral Symposium at the MoDELS conference provided an international forum for doctoral students to interact with other students and faculty mentors. The Doctoral Symposium brought together PhD Students working in areas related to modeling and model-driven engineering. Selected students were given the opportunity to present and to discuss their research goals, methods and results within a constructive and international atmosphere.
The Symposium organizers provided useful guidance for completion of the dissertation research and initiation of a research career. The symposium was intended for students who have already settled on a specific research proposal and have some preliminary results, but still have enough time remaining before their final defense so that they can benefit from the Symposium discussions.
Among the ten students selected to participate in the Symposium, seven students offered a formal presentation and three students discussed their work during a poster session.
Due to the mentoring aspect of the event, the Symposium was open only to those students and mentors directly participating.
The opening slides used during the introduction of the Symposium can be found here.
A page of photos taken during the event is available here.
A summary of the Symposium is available here.
The mentors offered advice on many topics related to academic research and the PhD process. Several of the mentors provided PowerPoint presentations:

Note: The "Lead Discussant" represents the symposium mentor who led the discussion of questions. Each student provided a 30 minute presentation, followed by 15 minutes of questions from the mentors and students. During the poster session, three students concurrently presented their posters in an informal setting to both mentors and students.
