Track Description and Topics of Interest
The ICALT2015 Doctoral Consortium aims to support and inspire PhD students
during their ongoing research efforts on topics related to Advanced Learning
Technologies. The Doctoral Consortium will provide to the PhD students the
opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in
the context of a well-known and established interdisciplinary and
international conference outside of their usual university environment.
Prominent professors and researchers in the field of Advanced Learning
Technologies will reflect to the selected papers and get engaged in a
scientific dialogue with the PhD students. 

The Doctoral Consortium will consist of 3 sessions. The first session aims
at giving students the chance to present their work to others and get
familiar with the work of other PhD students in their area. Each PhD student
will give a very brief presentation (about 3 minutes) about his/her work
with focus on motivation and research problem. These presentations are
followed by a poster exhibition where individual discussion about each
student's work will take place. The third session aims at giving students
feedback from an expert in their area and let them discuss their work with
him/her as well as with few other PhD students doing research in the
respective area. 

After the notification of acceptance/rejection, each PhD student with an
accepted paper will be assigned to a small group consisting of a few PhD
students and one expert in their area. Each group will start to communicate
and exchange their papers so that all members of the group are familiar with
the papers of each group member. During the third session, each small group
will meet individually to further discuss where each student can discuss
his/her work with the expert and with other PhD students.

The 3-page submission of DC Consortium papers should:   
. Provide the title of the PhD Research, the name of the PhD Student and the
PhD Advisor and the Affiliated Organisation . Provide a motivation for the
research, explaining what the problem in the respective field is and why it
is a problem, . Clearly formulate the research question, . Sketch the
research methodology that is to be applied,  
. Describe the expected contributions of the applicant to the research area,
and describes how the research is innovative, novel or extends existing
approaches to a problem.   
. Appropriately acknowledge the possible contribution of non-student
advisors or collaborators

Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, correctness, and

Up to 5 Ph.D. students per track will have the opportunity to participate.
Students will be required to pay the registration fees of the ICALT
Conference (at student rates).
