Final Call for Submissions: Career Development Workshop at CHI 2016

To be hosted at CHI 2016 in San Josť, California (May 7-12 2016)

Website: <>

This one day workshop will help new PhD graduates develop their careers in HCI through intensive interaction with senior mentors from academia and industry who have been successful in research and professional service. The workshop is open to all members of the HCI community who have received their PhDs in the past five years.


The workshop will be modeled after the CHI Doctoral Consortia. Each participant will be given 30-45 minutes to present and get feedback on his/her research and professional activities. We will also hold a series of panels in which senior researchers discuss (a) developing a career trajectory, (b) getting started in professional service, and (c) issues of work/life balance. Topics will include:

  *   Building a cohort group of fellow HCI researchers.
  *   Establishing a successful career path in academia, industry, and the nonprofit sector
  *   Selecting and developing a research trajectory.
  *   Identifying potential funding sources and preparing proposals.
  *   Getting involved in professional service.
  *   Communicating your work and strengthening your public profile
  *   Balancing work, family and social life.
