C&C 2011 Graduate Student Symposium - *DUE TODAY !!!*

Web Site - C&C 2011 Grad Student

Submission deadline April 29, 2011, via PCS


The Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) provides a supportive setting
for feedback on graduate students' current work and guidance on
future directions. GSS participants will meet and discuss their work with
each other and a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners in
an informal and interactive setting. We welcome applications from
graduate students in terminal degree programs, (e.g., doctoral programs in
research fields and master programs in the arts, as well as promising senior
undergraduate students) in any of the disciplines and approaches concerned
with *creativity and cognition*. We are anticipating a diverse set of
student participants, we are particularly seeking members of groups that are
underrepresented, such as women and members of the minority populations, as
well as people with disabilities.

Each application should provide a short written paper (no more than*
two pages* in normal ACM SIGCHI archival format) and a brief *letter of
support *from the student's principal adviser. The paper should describe
ongoing work and summarize the student's thesis, or highlight a particular
aspect. Advisor’s letter of support should indicate that the work has
reached the appropriate level of maturity for presentation in this venue.
The letter of support should be submitted together with the paper on the
conference submission site. Please note that GSC submission, unlike the
submission, is *not anonymous.*

Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions
to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the
symposium. Selected students will be expected to give a short presentation
of their work, followed by discussion with the panel and the other
student participants. In addition, each student is encouraged to present a
poster describing his or her work to the full conference and a 30-second
overview of their work as part of the “madness” session.

We anticipate that significant financial support from NSF will be available
for graduate students to attend the GSS (and thus also the C&C conference).

All submissions will be handled through the Precision Conference System.
Please visit the PCS website to complete your submission:
