Doctoral Colloquium

Call for Doctoral Colloquium (DC)

PhD students and candidates are invited to present, discuss and defend their work-in-progress or preliminary results in an international and renowned audience of researchers and developers in the ubiquitous computing field at UbiComp 2007 [1]. PhD students and candidates at all stages in the process are invited to submit a thesis position paper. Participants will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Colloquium, to be followed by a discussion.

The submission (max. 8 pages) should clearly state:

  • the original key idea of the thesis
  • the problem domain and the specific problem addressed
  • an overview of related work in the area of the PhD work
  • methodological approach
  • research carried out
  • the contribution made in the field of ubiquitous computing (for early work, state the expected contribution)

Submissions should be formatted according to the guidelines of Springerís Lecture Notes in Computer Science [2] and should be submitted as PDF files through EDAS [3]. The submissions will be reviewed and based on these reviews approximately 8 participants for the doctoral colloquium will be selected. The accepted thesis position papers will be published in the adjunct proceedings of UbiComp 2007.
