15th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys 2017)

November 5-8, 2017
Delft, The Netherlands

The Doctoral Colloquium of SenSys 2017 seeks to provide a friendly,
supportive, and constructive environment where PhD students can present
their research in progress for an open discussion guided by a panel of
experienced researchers.

The Doctoral Colloquium will be structured as a series of short
presentations by the students followed by individual discussions, feedback,
and advice. Students with the most inspiring topics will also be invited to
present a poster during the main conference to leverage further interaction
with SenSys attendees.

Current PhD students in the early stages of their career are encouraged to
submit a 2-pages research summary describing the work in progress and
including a 100-word abstract. Things to consider for inclusion in the
research summary might be: the expected contribution to the field; the
original idea or thesis statement; the problem domain and the specific
problem addressed; a brief overview of related work; the methodological
approach; research carried out and results so far. The abstract shall also
include a one-paragraph biography of the student, including the names and
affiliations of the research advisor(s), and expected date of dissertation
submission. The student should be the sole author, although contributions
of the advisor and others should be acknowledged.

The Doctoral Colloquium committee will review submissions to ensure
quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance. Authors of
accepted submissions are expected to participate in person to the Doctoral
Colloquium. There will be no separate registration fee for the Doctoral

Research summaries will be reviewed by the chairs and panel members. If the
work is accepted, a student may be expected to make clarifications and
improvements to the research summary by the camera-ready deadline.
Submissions must be received no later than September 29th via web
submission form:

Submissions must be in PDF format, be written in English, of no more than
two pages in length (all inclusive), and adhere to the Sensys formatting
styles found here:
The abstract should include the author’s name, affiliation, and email
