The COOP 2014 Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students
meet and discuss their work with each other and the DC chairs.
It offers each student a forum for receiving comments and fresh
perspectives on their work from researchers and students outside their
This is also a way to promote the development of a supportive community
of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research.
We invite Ph.D. students who feel they would benefit from feedback on
their current research and guidance on future research directions to
apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with students in a
similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field.
We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches
that inform the Design of Cooperative Systems, including anthropology,
sociology, computer science, cognitive science, organizational studies,
and related fields.
Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established
direction of research relevant to the Design of Cooperative Systems, but
whose research would benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior
colleagues at the Doctoral Colloquium.
The Colloquium Chairs will select a maximum of 10 participants, based
on the quality of their submission ( for details, see below). At the
Colloquium, students will be expected to give a very short, informal
presentation of their work, to be followed by substantial time for
discussion and questions by participating researchers and other students.
