5th ACM International Conference on Collaboration Across Boundaries: Culture, Distance & Technology
Kyoto, Japan
August 20-22, 2014

The CABS Doctoral Consortium is a forum for Ph.D. students doing research in the area of intercultural collaboration to meet and discuss their work with each other and an international panel of experienced researchers. CABS aims to be a multidisciplinary forum that integrates the socio-cultural and technical perspectives. The Doctoral Consortium will be held on Wednesday 20-August-2014 the day before the CABS 2014 conference begins.

Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established direction of research relevant to culture, language, and distance in communication, collaboration, and management and who would benefit from attendance at the Doctoral Consortium. We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches, including anthropology, cognitive science, computer science, information science, linguistics, organizational studies, psychology, sociology, and related fields.

The DC Committee will select approximately 12-15 participants who will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Consortium, to be followed by extensive group discussion. Participants will receive priority in the selection of Student Volunteers <>.

Eligibility and Application Process

In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address specifically doctoral work! Therefore, the following elements have to be addressed in the papers:

1.  An overview of your doctoral research that describes your research question, motivation, study plans, (work in progress), and expected contributions. This overview should also include a paragraph that articulates what you hope to get from attending the CABS Doctoral Consortium. This document should be no more than four pages, formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI template and submitted in PDF format. Please use the Extended Abstracts template <>.
2.  A one paragraph biographical sketch
3.  An email letter from your academic advisor/supervisor sent to [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> by 02-May-2014, indicating that they support your application to the colloquium and that they agree that your research is at an appropriate stage for participation.

Submissions should be emailed to: [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>

Accepted students should prepare:

1.  An introduction of themselves and the PhD project for the introductory session. Duration: 1 minute maximum.
2.  A 15-20 minute plenary presentation of the PhD project for discussion about their project and its main issues
3.  Students have the option of having their DC papers included or not to be included in the ACM digital library. In either case, students should submit the final version and clarify their preference (via email) by 25-June.
4.  Students are also invited to prepare a poster about their Ph.D. for the CABS 2014 poster session on 22 August, 2014.

All papers will be reviewed after acceptance by at least two senior researchers and one of the accepted doctoral candidates. Additionally, two discussants, members of the doctoral consortium committee, will be appointed to each paper. Discussant comments will be followed by a plenary discussion of the paper. At the end of the consortium there will be a general discussion, including a brainstorming session about current and future research topics in the area.
