I'm sure contact cement would work fine, but be damn sure you have the carpet lined up correctly because you won't get a second chance. That stuff sticks like grim death on contact and if you're using light weight carpet you'll have to destroy the carpet to get it off again.

I like my adhesives to have a bit of open time so I can fix the inevitable mistakes.

Re: Carpet on ceiling

roach711: haha

I was able to successfully carpet my ceiling with the 3M ultra strength spray adhesive. You spray both sides(carpet and ceiling), and let it sit a bit till it becomes tacky, then putting it up is a breeze as it just sticks in place. It's on extremely well, too, I haven't had any problems with peeling.
