The Doctoral Colloquium at the UbiComp 2011 conference offers students 
in the final stages of their Ph.D. research a unique forum for 
presenting their work and engaging in discussion with top experts in the 
field of ubiquitous computing. The Colloquium offers students the 
valuable opportunity to receive feedback and perspectives on their 
research from recognized experts in the field and other senior doctoral 
students, and to hear about and offer feedback on cutting-edge research 
being performed by other doctoral candidates.

The scope of the Doctoral Colloquium includes all major areas of 
ubiquitous computing. Participants will give high-level presentations of 
their dissertation research, followed by discussion with the faculty and 
other colloquium students. Applicants should be late-stage Ph.D. 
students with a well-established direction of research in ubiquitous 
computing, who are at still a stage sufficiently far from completion 
that their dissertations can benefit from the advice and feedback of the 

This year's Doctoral Colloquium will be a whole-day event taking place 
before the main Ubicomp 2011 conference. The event will consist of short 
student presentations and interactive discussions. Each participant will 
have time allotted for a short presentation about his/her research 
followed by an in-depth and constructive discussion led by the panel.  
The colloquium will be divided into multiple student presentation 
sessions with appropriate breaks in between. The event will conclude 
with a final session, in which panelists will have an opportunity to 
describe their own Ph.D. experiences and to provide useful suggestions, 
tips and advice on how to successfully navigate through a Ph.D and 
enrich one's Ph.D experience.
