  UbiComp/ISWC Doctoral School -- Announcement and Call for Papers

********************************************************************** |
    September 7-8, 2015, Osaka, Japan

The UbiComp/ISWC Organizing Committee is excited to announce the joint
UbiComp and ISWC 2015 Doctoral School, which continues the successful
Doctoral Colloquium event to offer a more in-depth and comprehensive
experience to PhD students at different stages in their PhD research.

The Doctoral School (DS) will provide a friendly, supportive, and
constructive forum in which PhD students can learn about research and
methods from internationally recognized leaders in the community and present
their research-in-progress to get feedback from peers and experts in the
field. The DS offers PhD students the valuable opportunity to engage in
in-depth discussion on their work and gain exposure to a variety of
perspectives that can help to strengthen and shape their work as they
progress towards their degrees.

**Target Participants**

The Doctoral School welcomes applications from candidates who are 1-2
years away from their PhDs. However, junior PhD students are welcome to
apply if they have already selected a topic they would like to pursue for
their thesis work and have some initial results. Applicants should be far
enough into their PhDs to have identified the salient issues and appropriate
research methodology, as well as achieved some results. The research
questions and proposed contributions of the dissertation research should be
defined. Preference will be given to applicants who are at a stage where a
substantial portion of the research has been completed but are still far
enough from completion that feedback received at the DS can influence the
remaining research.

Applicants accepted to the DS will be required to give a presentation on
their PhD research during the DS. DS student participants will be offered
free registration for UbiComp / ISWC 2015 for both the Doctoral School and
the main UbiComp / ISWC 2015 conferences. DS student participants will be
eligible to apply for student travel grants.


Student submissions should be 4-6 pages long and comply with the SIGCHI
Extended Abstract template. Accepted submissions will be included in the ACM
Digital Library as extended abstracts. Furthermore, students will be invited
to present during the joint UbiComp and ISWC poster session.

Applications should be submitted as a PDF file to either of the following
email addresses: [log in to unmask] and
[log in to unmask]

Submissions will be reviewed by the Chairs and an expert committee.
Interested applicants who are not sure whether to apply are encouraged to
consult with the Chairs prior to applying.
