Scalable Interaction Paradigms for Pervasive Computing Environments

Information about writing and submitting proposals

For this Priority Programme, we expect comprehensive research proposals, which take the specific challenges of future PCEs into account. A dedicated focus should be on the quality of the emerging interaction in terms of efficiency, experience and well-being. This also requires developing dedicated methods and tools to support the design and the evaluation of interaction paradigms for PCEs.

Information for Proposal Writing

Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by December 1, 2018. Please note that proposals can only be submitted via elan, the DFG’s electronic proposal processing system. To enter a new project within the existing Priority Programme, go to Proposal Submission – New Project/Draft Proposal – Priority Programmes and select “SPP 2199” from the current list of calls.

In preparing your proposal, please review the programme guidelines (form 50.05, section B) and follow the proposal preparation instructions (form 54.01). These forms can either be downloaded from our website or accessed through the elan portal. In addition to submitting your proposal through elan, please send an electronic copy to the programme coordinator. Applicants must be registered in elan prior to submitting a proposal to the DFG. If you have not yet registered, please note that you must do so by November 15, 2018 to submit a proposal under this call; registration requests received after this time cannot be considered. You will normally receive confirmation of your registration by the next working day. Note that you will be asked to select the appropriate Priority Programme call during both the registration and the proposal process.
