ASE 2011 Doctoral Symposium

November 6, 2011

Note: each student talk is 15 minutes long. This will be followed by 15 minutes of audience questions, then commentary and discussion with the doctoral program panel.

9 a.m.Keynote, Chair: Tim Menzies, WVU, USA
Andrian Marcus, Wayne State, Detroit, USA. Nurturing your research career

  • There is more to a research career than knowing (methodologically and technically) how to do research in your area. Assuming you know already how to do research, this talk will focus on other issues that impact your results and your career as a researcher. It will be targeted primarily to those doctoral students that plan to continue a career in software engineering research upon graduation, but hopefully it will benefit all students.
    • How to choose a research topic?
    • How to choose an advisor?
    • How and when to choose collaborators?
    • How to shape a research agenda before and after graduation?
  • These are some of the questions this talk will raise and venture to answer. There is no single answer to such questions, so alternatives will be discussed and analyzed.
