            Call Extended to 20th March 2015

ACM Creativity and Cognition, Glasgow           

            Graduate Student Symposium: 26th June 2015
Deadline: Extended 20th 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

            * 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 

            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

            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 

            All submissions will be handled through the Creativity and
Cognition Precision Conference web site. Use the two-column ACPDF. 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.
