*INTERACT 2015 Doctoral Consortium - Submission 27 March 2015

The INTERACT 2015 Doctoral Consortium is a forum for PhD students to 
discuss their research goals, methods, and results at an early stage in 
their research. The Doctoral Consortium aims to provide useful guidance 
for completion of the dissertation research and the initiation of a 
research career in a friendly and constructive atmosphere.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held on 14 and 15 September 2015. The 
Consortium will be a closed event, open only to the selected 
participants and other invited attendees.

The Doctoral Consortium and INTERACT 2015 provides an opportunity for 
student participants to interact with other students, established 
researchers, and the broader HCI community. PhD students who are 
currently working in an HCI related field are eligible to apply. 
Doctoral Consortium candidates should have chosen a research focus and 
also have selected theoretical and methodological approaches and begun 
to conduct their research. To benefit from the Consortium students 
should have at least 6-12 months of work remaining before the expected 
completion of their theses. The number of participants in the Consortium 
will be limited. Selection for the Consortium will be based on the 
quality of the submission, its relevance to HCI, the relevance of the 
student’s contribution to the Consortium, and the potential benefit of 
the Consortium to the student’s research. Students selected to attend 
the Doctoral Consortium will be asked to present their work to get 
feedback for future directions. Consortium attendees are free to submit 
a paper or contribution to any of the other tracks at INTERACT 2015 on 
content similar to that in the proposal for the Doctoral Consortium.

<[log in to unmask]" target="_blank">[log in to unmask]>).

*Part 1* Extended Research Abstract
The research description should be in PDF format, up to four pages long, 
formatted according to the conference papers format 
<>, and must include:

  * The title of the work.
  * The student’s name, university, address and e-mail address.
  * Name and e-mail address of the dissertation advisor/supervisor.
  * The research area or sub-area of the work (ten words or less).
  * A brief description of the research topic (25 words or less).
  * A description of the research problem to be solved, why it is
    important and a justification that prior research has not solved the
  * The research hypothesis (claim).
  * The methods used or proposed to use to carry out the research; it is
    important to describe a plan for evaluating the work and presenting
    credible evidence of the results to the research community.
  * A sketch of the proposed solution.
  * The expected contributions of the PhD research.
  * A statement of work to date and open questions/issues for discussion
    at the DC.

*Part 2:* Letter of Recommendation
The letter of recommendation should come from the student’s PhD 
advisor/supervisor, or head of school, or equivalent, supporting the 
student’s nomination for the Consortium. This letter should include the 
student’s name, a short assessment of the current status of the PhD 
research, an expected date for dissertation submission, an assessment of 
what the student would bring to the Consortium, and how the student 
would benefit from attendance. The letter should be in PDF format, and 
must be e-mailed to the Doctoral Consortium co-chairs 
([log in to unmask] 
<[log in to unmask]" target="_blank">[log in to unmask]>).

The accepted four-page research abstracts will be published in the 
official adjunct conference proceedings at the University of Bamberg Press.

Students whose proposals are accepted for presentation at the Doctoral 
Consortium will be offered support in the form of waived conference 
fees, but will have to fund their own travel and accommodation expenses.
