6th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare

May 21–24, 2012 | San Diego, California, United States

Pervasive Healthcare Doctoral Consortium

The DC offers Ph.D. students the opportunity to engage with other doctoral students and to receive feedback from experienced reviewers and scholars. Pervasive health is a challenging and rapidly developing area of research where the exchange of ideas and discussion of concepts, directly with other researchers, is an effective way of gaining new insights and identifying opportunities for possible collaborations. The doctoral consortium will enable doctoral students to present and reflect on their work and receive feedback from a panel of experts.

Submissions should clearly state:

  • the background to the research
  • the specific problem the research is intended to address
  • the methodological approach adopted
  • a description of work done to date
  • the contribution or expected contribution
  • intended future work
  • specific issues related to doctoral research that you would like to discuss at the consortium

Submission and Review Process

Submissions (up to 4 pages) should follow the formatting and preparation criteria provided in the Authors Kit. (cf. also available from the conference website. Submissions in .pdf format should be made directly to the doctoral consortium chairs. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel, and based upon these reviews a number of the submissions will be presented at the consortium.
