I got some really interesting comments, both generally on how to structure
a thesis, and specific comments on my specific research. Rick in particular
had a valuable idea on how to structure and present my work in such a way that
the contribution is more apparent. Hats off to the whole committee for staying
focused and constructive during the whole day.
- Kurt Schelfthout, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
I am very happy to present my PhD work in MDS2005. I would like to thank all
the mentors for their constructive remarks. I am also thankful to the doctoral
symposium organizers for given us the opportunity to meet.
- Abdelkrim Beloued, Technopôle de Brest Iroise
The experience was very good for me, exchanging emails and papers with other
students/researchers is not really like sharing experiences face to face. This
is what events like MDS are for, especially at the very beginning. I had really
good feedback from the committee. I would like to thank each and every one of
the committee members, for their invaluable support, and the time they spent
coming to the symposium and providing advice.

I found the DS very useful. The format was very good, 20 mins for questions
left a lot of time for analysis of the work and allowed for people to really
clarify what their work involved. The mentors did an excellent job too and were
thorough but fair in their questioning. I also liked the fact that the symposium
was "open" allowing interested individuals to attend and give their
own views on the work presented. I think this is also useful for students taking
on research who have may have not have submitted a paper. From my experience
DS in other conferences have been closed and would not include such an audience.
- Trevor Parsons, University College Dublin
It was very helpful for all of us and an invaluable help! Personally, I think
that the organization was close to perfect. I am very grateful to the committee
for taking the time to read our abstracts and criticize our ideas. Your feedback
was very helpful, especially, because it was provided from somebody from the
field we are working in and not related to oneself. All in all, it was an exciting
event where I learned a lot. Thank you very much for making this possible!
- Michael A. Jaeger, Technical University of Berlin.
The workshop was very helpful to me. Especially to justify my doubts. This
helps to narrow for example the problem statement or think about a more concrete
evaluation plan. Thanks for your time and suggestions.
- Rüdiger Kapitza, University of Erlangen-Nürnberg
The symposium has been very useful to me in my research. I got a valuable feedback
both on my research problem and the research methodology in general. I learned
a lot not only from feedback to my work but also from the works of other students.
The session where the panel shared their experience with students was particularly
interesting. It was really interesting to hear from people from both industry
and academy with very broad experience. I am really grateful and thankful to
the panel and the organizers of the symposium.
