You are a Ph.D. student working in the field of Internet of Things?
The Doctoral Consortium is your special session of the IoT conference where you can share your current research with peers and receive advice in a constructive atmosphere. Furthermore, you can grow your research network and learn about hot topics and approaches in the field. You present and discuss your early research with other PhD students and a panel of established researchers in the area of the Internet of Things.
For the IoT 2021 Doctoral Consortium, we are seeking submissions of original (unpublished) early research by PhD students on all topics related to the design, development, applications, evaluations and adoption of the Internet of Things.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
- APIs and Software Frameworks for IoT
- IoT Edge and Cloud Architectures
- Web of Things
- AI and Machine Learning for the IoT
- Sensing, perception, and semantic models
- Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in the IoT
- Real-world Applications, Deployments and Testbeds
- Interacting with the IoT: agency and shared control
- Security, Privacy and Trust in the IoT
- Societal Impact of the IoT
- Evaluation, Benchmarks and user studies
- Submissions: August 23, 2021
- Notifications: October 4, 2021
Preparing and Submitting Your PhD proposal
Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should submit a 4 page abstract (including references) formatted in the most recent ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format (Latex, Word, Overleaf) via easychair to the DC chairs describing in English their research question / problem to solve, its position with respect to the state of the art, their research plans and methodology, and results achieved so far. The student should be the sole or at least the first author of their DC paper.
Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings (unless opted out by the student), listed on DBLP and published via the ACM Digital Library.
In the program, we plan to allocate for each student a separate time slot for a presentation and and corresponding oral feedback by at least two senior faculty members or researchers and other participating student peers. The presentation will be intimate to encourage interaction, with only the session organizer, review panel, and other student DC presenters in attendance. Students are encouraged to submit work at an early stage of development to get the greatest benefit from the feedback from senior researchers. Students are expected to attend all presentations in their session.
