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 PhD 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.
