Are you a early-stage doctoral student looking for guidance and feedback on
your research program?

The ASSETS 2016 Doctoral Consortium (DC) will provide a forum
for doctoral students to present their research plans and receive feedback
from senior researchers and students working in similar areas. Students
submitting to the DC should have a clear topic and research approach, and
made some progress, but should not be so far along that they cannot make

The overall purpose of the Consortium is to encourage and prepare a group
of promising young researchers dedicated to Assistive Technologies,
Universal Accessibility, and Universal Usability. The Consortium will:

   - Provide a supportive setting for promising young researchers to give a
   short, critiqued research presentation, and then receive feedback from
   other student participants, and from established researchers in the field
   of Assistive Technologies, Universal Accessibility, and Universal Usability
   about their current research, as well as guidance on future research
   - Provide opportunities for the student participants to make contact
   with experts in the field, and to receive fresh perspectives and comments
   on their work from researchers outside their own institution - including
   both faculty and students.
   - Enable the student participants to attend the ASSETS 2016 conference,
   to contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
   researchers and conference events, to learn of potential career paths
   within academia and industry, and to gain access to an international
   network of researchers who can support their professional development.

Students chosen for the DC will receive support covering conference
registration, one night hotel (double occupancy) and some travel expenses
(up to $500 for US students and up to $900 for international students).
Food will be provided for lunch and dinner during the consortium.

Submissions are due June 24, 2016.
