The DSIE’17 (Doctoral Symposium in Informatics Engineering) is part of the "Methodologies for Scientific Research" course held by the Doctoral Program in Informatics Engineering (ProDEI) at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) and represents the 12th edition of a series of scientific meetings that have been held since 2005. The event will take place at FEUP on 31st of January of 2017.
The aim of DSIE is to improve graduate students' proficiency in scientific research, writing and presentation skills and develop a spirit of collaborative research.
Symposium participants will expose and discuss their work, while collecting profitable expert opinions and promoting their own experience. The students will also have the opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and performing research in Informatics Engineering. The sharing of new ideas, methods and applications leads the PhD students to a good improvement of their thesis content.
PhD students are invited to submit their contributions to DSIE'17 to share their ideas and knowledge on their areas of expertise.
All the information about the symposium activities can be found on this web page. We invite you to explore it and get to know about all the details of the event.

PhD and MsC students working in any area of Informatics Engineering are invited to present their on going research work and meet other students and researchers to obtain relevante feedback on future research directions regarding analytical, empirical, methodological and technological based papers. Analytical and empirical papers should make clear the significance and relevance of their potential impact to the community. Similarly, methodological and technological papers should make clear their scientific and technical contributions, and are expected to demonstrate a thorough evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses in practice. Contributions should report on substantial research supported by measurable results.
Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable.
Complete manuscripts in PDF format must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS Template , with a length between 10 and 12 pages, including figures and references. All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the Paper Submission Page (EasyChair system).
The received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system. We would recommend that you respect the page limit and do not submit more than one paper per event. At least one author for each accepted contribution must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceeding.
Contributions will be evaluated using the following criteria:

DSIE’17 will take place in the city of Porto. The scientific program will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP).
Overlooking the Douro River, Porto is one of the most ancient European cities, It was born and developed from the northern bank of this river during the Middle Ages. One of the most significant aspects of Porto and its historical centre is its landscape, combining harmony with the urban structure and presenting a frame of rare beauty. The city was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1996. When discovering Porto, you will find many surprises. Besides its welcoming and conservative environment, Porto is also contemporary and artistic. This is shown not only in the streets, architecture, monuments and museums but also in the terraces, restaurants and leisure and shopping areas.
