Call For Papers
The 7th ACM International Conference on Pervasive Services (ICPS 2010), July 13-16, 2010, Berlin, Germany
CFP: Doctoral Colloquium
Submission deadline: Apr 25, 2010
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2010
Camera ready: May 30, 2010
The Doctoral Colloquium at the ICPS 2010 conference invites PhD students to present their research and engage in discussion with top experts in the area of pervasive computing. The Colloquium offers students the opportunity to receive feedback and perspectives on their research from recognised experts in the field and other senior doctoral students, and to hear about and offer feedback on cutting-edge research carried out by other doctoral candidates.
Participants will present their research and the presentation will be followed by discussion with the panel of academics and other colloquium students. Applicants should be late-stage Ph.D. students with a well-established direction of research in pervasive computing, who are sufficiently far from completion that their research can benefit from the advice and feedback of the Colloquium.
The scope of the Doctoral Colloquium is similar to the scope of ICPS 2010 and the Doctoral Colloquium will be held as part of ICPS'2010.
Submissions will be reviewed by international experts and based on these reviews, candidates for the doctoral colloquium will be selected. Accepted DC submissions will be published in the workshop proceedings of ICPS 2009, i.e. will be published by ACM Press and will be available in the ACM Digital Library.
