Student Consortium Think Tank @ ICAD 2006

Chair: Dr Paul Vickers, email: [log in to unmask]
Panel - TBA
Deadline: 31 April 2006

The Student Consortium think-tank is a full-day meeting for students  
doing Masters or Doctoral projects in auditory display or related  
areas. It will be held on 19th June, 2006 the day before the main  
ICAD 2006 conference in London. There is a small registration fee of  
£22 GBP to cover the cost of lunch and refreshments. The conference  
web site gives details of accommodation options.

The Student Consortium is your chance to set a whole roomful of  
auditory researchers to work on your particular research issue, to  
help you choose which method, tool or technique to use to save you  
from heading down a dead end. Besides providing breakthrough insights  
into your particular project, the Consortium will foster friendships  
and networks that are essential in an international community for  
auditory display. The Consortium is open to all students who make a  
submission by 31 March.

The submission should consist of
- a description of a problem you would like to talk through, and
- a biography.

The description of your problem should begin with a title, a sentence  
summarising your research question or hypothesis, and 200 words  
summarising the problem you would like to discuss, which can be  
anything from choosing the right tools and techniques, to choosing  
research topics, to how to organise your thesis, to philosophical or  
aesthetic issues - anything where you could benefit from the  
perspectives and experience of other students and expertise from the  
panel. Your biography should start with your name, the title of your  
study programme, the names of your supervisors, the number of years  
you have been studying, your department and institution, and up to  
200 words on your personal background.

Ten submissions will be selected by the Panel for oral presentation  
and ‘think-tanking’ by the Consortium. Notifications of selection  
will be emailed by 28 April. The selected problems will be  
representative examples of a widespread problem, or will be  
particularly interesting or difficult (as determined by the expert  
Panel). Each student whose problem is selected will prepare a 15  
minute presentation for the Consortium which will be followed by a 15  
minute discussion by everyone in attendance. The Panel will present a  
report on the Consortium in the ICAD 2006 conference program. Even if  
your problem is not selected you will leave with a sense of what  
other students are doing and how they are approaching problems in  
auditory display, as well as new friends to talk about your project  
with during the rest of the ICAD 2006 conference and in the future.  
If your problem is selected you may also leave with the breakthrough  
you need!

Please email submissions (pdf or Word) by 31 March to the Consortium  
Chair Dr Paul Vickers at [log in to unmask]

Confirmation of receipt and notifications of selection will be  
emailed back by 28 April. Updates on the Consortium, possible support  
funding, etc. will be posted at
