SenSys 2015 Doctoral Colloquium
November 1,Seoul, South Korea

The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) of SenSys' 15 is to provide a friendly,
supportive, and constructive environment 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 four
months after the DC, so that any advice or input may still be incorporated
into the doctoral work.

The DC will be a seminar-style event, consisting of short presentations
followed by round table 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.


Topic scope is the same as that listed in the SenSys call for papers. DC
submissions should consist of a single PDF document using the SenSys paper
template. The document should contain the following:

[1] Research summary (3 pages) 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 of sensor
networking; 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.

[2] Student biographical sketch, including the names and affiliations of the
research advisor(s), and expected date of dissertation submission.

The submission site can be found at:


Research summaries will be reviewed by the chairs and panel members. If the
work is accepted, a student may be expected to make clarifications and
improvements to the research summary by the camera-ready deadline. Note
that the research summaries (limited to 2-pages at camera-ready time) will
be formally published as part of the SenSys proceedings and archived in the
ACM digital library.

A prize for best student presentation will be awarded by the panel.
