The Doctoral Colloquium of SenSys 2018 seeks to provide a friendly,
supportive, and constructive environment where Ph.D. 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 Ph.D. 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
