» All articles that have been presented and discussed (available to Malmö University staff only due to copyright reasons)

How do I sign up for the PhD course?
PhD students enroll by emailing the course responsible Paul Davidsson.

What kind of course is it?
The course is based on the presentation and discussion of scientific articles relevant for the IOTAP research center. Articles can be suggested to the course responsible who decides whether it is appropriate or not. The articles should preferably be relevant to all three IOTAP research areas (i.e. Interaction Technology, User-centered Development, and Embedded Intelligence). At the seminar, the student presents the article (about 20 mins) and then a joint discussion follows (about 25 mins). The article to be presented and discussed will be made available at least one week in advance.

What are the criteria for passing?
To pass the PhD course (5 credits), the student needs to present at least two articles and actively participate in at least ten seminars.

What will I learn?
The course contributes to the objective of demonstrating profound and current specialist knowledge within a delimited research area. The course also aims to develop the student’s ability to orally, with authority, present and discuss research and research results.

After completing the course, the student should have an understanding of current research questions in the Internet of Things field; have knowledge about the research areas Interaction Technology, User-centered Development, and Embedded Intelligence; and be able to orally present and discuss issues within the area in an informed way.
