INTERACT 2015 Doctoral Consortium

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.

*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.
