=== GROUP 2014 Doctoral Colloquium ===

Important Dates
Applications due: May 7th, 2014; Email collated pdf to: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
Notification: June 6th, 2014?
Doctoral Colloquium: Nov 9th, 2014

The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) will be a full-day event on November 9, 2014 as part of the GROUP 2014<> conference. It provides a forum in which up to 12 selected Ph.D. candidates will meet and discuss their work with each other and with a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners, including Dan Cosley (Cornell University), Thomas Herrmann (Ruhr University Bochum), and Geraldine Fitzpatrick (Vienna University of Technology).

The DC goals are to: (1) build a cohort of new researchers; (2) provide constructive feedback from GROUP-related experts; (3) encourage research on GROUP-related topics; (4) enable promising new researchers to attend a leading research conference; (5) illustrate the interrelationship and diversity of GROUP research; and (6) make participants' GROUP experience enjoyable and rewarding.

Format & Attendance
The colloquium Participants will give short, informal presentations of their work and receive constructive critiques from both faculty panelists and other DC members. There will also be time for discussing professionalization issues. Participants will also present their work to the larger GROUP community during the interactive poster session at the conference.

DC participants are expected to stay for the entire conference, because a primary goal is to enculturate participants into both GROUP and the scholarly community. To this end, we will cover registration, lodging, and to the extent possible, travel costs. We gratefully acknowledge funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support the DC.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform the GROUP conference, including CSCW, CSCL, information technology, information science, HCI, learning sciences, organizational studies, social informatics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, computer science, cognitive science, and other related fields.

Applications must be formatted according to ACM SIG Proceedings Extended Abstract Template, include the three key components stated on the website, and be emailed by May 7th, 2014 as a collated pdf to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

For details on the application requirements please go to:

Participants will be chosen with an emphasis on diversity of topics, participants, approaches, and institutions. Preference will be given to students who have a defined topic and are actively engaged in their dissertation research program of work i.e., students who have proposed their topics and are within 2 years of graduation within a 5 year program or are half way through a 3 or 4 year program.
