ACM Sensys 2010 Doctoral Colloquium

The ACM Sensys 2010 Doctoral Colloquium will be held on November 2, 2010, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

The purpose of the doctoral colloquium (DC) is to provide a friendly, supportive, and constructive atmosphere where PhD students can present their research-in-progress for an open discussion, guided by a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners. Applicants should be far enough into their PhD to have a concrete proposal, and have initially outlined the salient issues and proposed research methodology. Applicants should not be planning to submit their PhD thesis or dissertation for at least six months after the DC, so that any advice or input may still be incorporated into the doctoral work.

The DC will be a one-day, seminar-style event, consisting of short presentations followed by roundtable discussion. Time will be allotted to each student not only for the presentation, but also for careful, in-depth consideration and discussion amongst the panelists and DC participants. In order to provide such individual attention, the number of accepted DC participants will be limited to twelve.
