For PhD students in the area of Ubicomp -

Doctoral Colloquium at the Grid and Pervasive Computing conference (GPC 2011)
on the 11th of May 2011 in Oulu, Finland
Deadline for the submission of Doctoral Colloquium papers is the 28th of February 2011.

The doctoral colloquium offers a chance for PhD students to receive high-quality feedback from external reviewers and to directly interact with peers, to exchange ideas, discuss concepts, and establish informal cooperation between researchers and research groups. 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 GPC 2011.
PhD students and candidates at all stages in the process are invited to submit a thesis position paper, but preference is given to students early on in their PhD work. Participants will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Colloquium, to be followed by a discussion. The submission should clearly state:

        . The original key idea / hypothesis 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 grid and pervasive computing (for early work, state the expected contribution).

The papers should be submitted as a PDF file through the EasyChair system.
