The PervasiveHealth 2018 Doctoral Colloquium (DC) provides an opportunity
for doctoral students to present, reflect and discuss their research in an
international forum alongside other doctoral students and a panel of
experts. The Doctoral Colloquium will be held on Monday 21st May2018 as

discussion of concepts with other researchers provides an effective way of
gaining new insights and identifying opportunities for possible

The research overview has to address the following questions:
* What is the problem? What are you going to solve?
* Who cares? Why should people care about this problem?
* What have other people done about it? Literature review. Why is that not
sufficient? What are the gaps and unanswered questions?
* What are you going to do about it? Your approach
* What are you really going to do about it? Methods, operationalization,
* When do you know you are done?
* What do you expect to find? What did you find? Results
* What does this mean? Conclusions
* Who cares? Implications
* What would you like to know from the DC faculty panel?

Students should submit their documents via email to both DC chairs: <yunanc

that submissions are accepted only in PDF format. Confidentiality of
submissions is maintained during the review process, and the participants
to the DC will be selected through a single-blind review process and

rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. Submissions
will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the
contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation.

The Doctoral Colloquium position papers will not be published to ensure the
student’s work is kept in confidence, however students will present their
work in a presentation during the doctoral colloquium and via a poster in
the main conference poster session.
