The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced UbiComp researchers and practitioners.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform ubiquitous computing, including computer science, engineering, cognitive science, sociology, and related fields. Applicants should be beyond the proposal stage and into their dissertation research. The Colloquium committee will select approximately 10 participants who will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Colloquium, to be followed by a discussion.

Submissions should be no longer than 2 pages including an abstract of no more than 100 words and a description of the work in progress. In addition, a 2-3 paragraph biographical sketch should be supplied, indicating the name and affiliation of any advisors/co-advisors for the research, and including the anticipated date of completion of thesis research. Submissions should be formatted according to theACM SIGCHI conference publications format.

The Doctoral Colloquium will be held on Tuesday. Doctoral Colloquium participants will also have an opportunity to participate in the Posters session on Wednesday. Doctoral Colloquium papers will be published in the Conference Supplement that will be circulated to attendees at the conference; they will not be incorporated into the main UbiComp 2004 Conference Proceedings.

Submission requests should be made directly by email to the DC chair (below).
