The joint UbiComp / ISWC doctoral colloquium is a unique opportunity for 
PhD students to present their key concepts and ideas to a premier 
scientific audience and to receive high-quality feedback from excellent 
external reviewers, a global scientific audience, and some of the best 
of their peers. The doctoral colloquium 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. Lively 
discussions, insights and novel ideas, and new opportunities for 
cooperation between research groups are also likely outcomes from 

PhD students/candidates are invited to present, discuss and defend their 
work-in-progress or preliminary results in the ubiquitous computing or 
wearable computing fields at the doctoral colloquium. PhD students and 
candidates at all stages in the process are invited to submit a thesis 
position paper, but preference is given to students who are still 1-2 
years away from completing their PhDs. 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 away from 
completion that feedback received can still influence the remaining 
research. Participants will be expected to give short, informal 
presentations of their work during the colloquium, to be followed by a 


Student submissions must be 4-6 pages long and are required to follow 
the same template as Ubicomp full papers:

* Problem domain and the specific problem(s) addressed
* Overview of related work in the area of the PhD work
* Methodological approach chosen
* Original key idea and corresponding hypothesis of the thesis
* Research carried out so far and planned ahead
* Evaluation methods and steps {carried out | planned}
* Contribution {made | expected} in the field of ubiquitous computing

Please observe the following additional guidelines:
* Omit the abstract mentioned in the template, but provide CCS keywords 
(see the template for explanation); you may provide additional keywords 
if you wish to do so
* We suggest to use the seven aspects listed above as chapter headings; 
if you think you have to divert from this skeleton, make sure that the 
seven aspects come out clearly in your submission
* Please also submit an additional page with a short biographical 
sketch, including the names and affiliations of your research 
advisor(s), the date when you began your PhD, and the expected date of 
* Use graphics and add references wisely
