This full day event will enable doctoral students to present and reflect on their work alongside other doctoral students and a panel of experts. Submissions have to address the following questions:

  1. What is the problem? What are you going to solve?
  2. Who cares? Why should people care about this problem?
  3. What have other people done about it? Literature review. Why is that not sufficient? What are the gaps and unanswered questions?
  4. What are you going to do about it? Your approach
  5. What are you really going to do about it? Methods, operationalization, sample
  6. When do you know you are done?
  7. What do you expect to find? What did you find? Results
  8. What does this mean? Conclusions
  9. Who cares? Implications
  10. What would you like to know from the DC faculty panel?
  11. (Optional) Request for Funding - Please note if you need funding and your estimate costs.

The Doctoral Colloquium papers will not be published to ensure the student's work is kept in confidence, however students will present their work in a presentation during the doctoral colloquium and via a poster in the main conference poster session.

Students are requested to provide a short letter from their advisor noting their year in the program, years until the student should defend, and how the DC will help with their research.

Format: The 4 page doctoral consortium submissions should follow the Pervasive Health formatting guidelines http://pervasivehealth.org/2016/show/authors-kit

Dissemination: The Doctoral Colloquium papers will not be published to ensure the student's work is kept in confidence, however students will present their work in a presentation during the doctoral colloquium and via a poster in the main conference poster session.

Review Process: Each paper will be blind, peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive Health program committee with additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research domains. Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. The paper should make explicit how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been published or submitted

Submission: Complete application packages (with 4 page submission and Advisor letter) should be sent to pervhcdc@gmail.com

Funding: We have some funding for travel and hotel for a select number of presenting doctoral consortium participants.
