ACM Creativity and Cognition, Glasgow  

Graduate Student Symposium: 26th June 2015
Deadline: 6th March 
Notifications: 17th April, 2015 

Note: If selected for the symposium, students from U.S. academic
institutions (regardless of citizenship) may receive reimbursement for
airfare (up to $1500) and registration costs. 

Call for Participation  
The Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) provides a forum in which students
have a unique opportunity to meet and discuss their work with each other
and a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners. The forum
provides an informal and interactive setting for acquiring feedback on
current research and creative explorations and to receive guidance on
future directions. Applications may address any of the topics,
approaches, and disciplines related to creativity and cognition (see the
main call for papers). The GSS will be held on the 26th of June, which
is the day after the main conference ends. 
We welcome applications from graduate students in degree programs (i.e.
doctoral programs in research fields and master programs in the arts and
design) in any of the disciplines and approaches concerned with
creativity and cognition. Applicants should have an established
direction of research relevant to the conference, but whose research
would benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior colleagues at
the Graduate Student Symposium. Each application should include: 
* A two-page written paper (it must be in the SIGCHI format) 
* A brief letter of support from the student’s principal adviser 
* A brief biographical sketch (2-3 paragraphs) together with a list of
any relevant publications 
The two page paper should describe ongoing work and summarize the
student’s thesis or highlight a particular aspect. The paper must be
first-authored by the student. Advisors’ or supervisors’ letters of
support should indicate that the work has reached the appropriate level
of maturity for presentation in this venue. The letter of support and
biographical sketch should be submitted together with the paper on the
conference submission site. Please note that submissions to the GSS,
unlike submissions to the other venues, is not anonymous. For templates,
please see the conference website under Submission. 
Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions
to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the
symposium. Selected students will be expected to give a short
presentation of their work, followed by discussion with the panel and
the other student participants. 
In addition, each student is encouraged to submit a poster describing
his or her work. The poster would be submitted to the Poster track and
reviewed independent of the GSS. An appropriate approach would be to
extend the two page GSS submission into a four page poster submission.
Authors may not submit an identical version of the GSS submission to the
Poster track. If an author does submit a poster in parallel, please
notify the chairs of the GSS. 
Financial support may be available for graduate students to attend the
GSS and conference. Please contact the Chair of the GSS for updated
information about financial support. 
All submissions will be handled through the Creativity and Cognition
Precision Conference web site (
). Use the two-column ACM SIGCHI format. Templates are available for
Latex (
) and Word (
). You must submit a PDF. The total size of all submitted materials,
including video, should not exceed 100 Mb. The CHI (
) and UIST ( ) guides
to producing good video figures are useful.
