*******************************************************************************

The Doctoral Symposium on Engineering Stochastic Local Search 
Algorithms (SLS-DS) is part of the Workshop on Engineering Stochastic 
Local Search Algorithms in Brussels, Belgium, on 6-8 September 2007. 
The Doctoral Symposium is a constructive and friendly forum where doctoral 
students can:

   1. present their research and obtain constructive feedback from senior 
      researchers
   2. establish contact with other students at a similar stage in their careers
   3. experience an international research event.

The goal of the symposium is to expose students to helpful criticism of their
current or future research plans and to foster discussions related to their 
research and careers.

The format of the symposium is a short single slide oral presentation of 
the student's research topic followed by a poster presentation.

Places at the doctoral symposium will be limited. The organisers' decision on the 
acceptance of a student's work for presentation at the symposium will be based on
an extended abstract describing the student's research. All submissions 
will be reviewed for relevance and for quality and clarity of presentation.

Accepted abstracts will appear in the doctoral symposium's proceedings, 
will be distributed to all participants of SLS 2007, and will appear as an 
IRIDIA Technical Report online (ISSN 1781-3794). 


Submission
----------------
Submissions of 5-page extended abstracts are invited from doctoral students conducting 
research on all aspects of engineering stochastic local search algorithms.

Submission formatting instructions are available from the Doctoral Symposium
web page. 

By submitting an extended abstract, the author(s) agree that, if their abstract
is accepted, they will:

   1. Submit a final, revised, camera-ready version by the deadline for 
      camera-ready extended abstracts,
   2. Register at least one author for the SLS Workshop
   3. Attend the Doctoral Symposium (at least one author) to present their 
      accepted abstract as a poster. 


Important Dates
