IOT Conference - Call for Doctoral Colloquium
The 6th International Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT 2016)

Call for Participation: Doctoral Symposium
The IoT Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced IoT researchers. Goal of the Doctoral Colloquium is to provide Ph.D. students with feedback on their dissertation proposals and to provide opportunities for Ph.D. students to network with peers and future peers to share research ideas and facilitate their professional development.

* Notification: September 16, 2016
* Camera-ready: November 1, 2016

ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format:
Online Submission:

Submission content and format:
5 pages including figures, references, and 100 word abstract describing:
* the problem that the thesis addresses,
* an overview of the most relevant previous work,
* the current status of the work, and
* the plan for the full dissertation work.
1-page bio sketch, incl. a paragraph stating what you hope to learn from participating in the DC

Participants receive a student volunteer slot and a free conference registration.

What is the Doctoral Colloquium?
The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) brings together Ph.D. students working on topics related to the field of IoT, providing them with an opportunity to present and discuss their research with their peers and senior faculty from the Doctoral Colloquium Committee of the IoT 2016. It is planned that each student will be allocated a 30-minute time slot, with 15 minutes for a presentation and 15 minutes for oral feedback by at least three senior faculty or researchers. The presentation will be intimate to encourage interaction, with only the session organizer, reviewers, and other student DC presenters in attendance. Reviewer feedback will cover all aspects of their proposal (the choice of topic, how it is to be examined, etc.). Students are expected to attend all presentations in their sessions.

Eligibility, Submission, and Selection
The IoT 2016 doctoral colloquium welcomes contributions from doctoral students currently registered in a Ph.D. program. Ideal candidates should have worked on their dissertation for some months. Thus, they should have chosen a research topic and possibly have made progress in identifying the relevant theories and their research plan. Selection of participants will be based on the quality of the submission and its relevance to the conference topics. We will invite not only the best submissions, but also some of the weaker submissions if they show motivation in their bio sketch how to profit from the DC. Submissions must be single-author, but the name of the supervisor must be mentioned in the submission. The conversation language of the colloquium is English and all submissions must be in English. The research proposal should follow the instruction in the template. In addition, submit a one-page biographical sketch (CV), including a paragraph stating what you hope to get out of participating in the DC.
