Call for Papers
Doctoral Consortium at OzCHI 2016, Launceston, Australia.

Submissions due: 2nd September 2016

# Overview:
The OzCHI Doctoral Consortium offers PhD students the opportunity to
present their research plans, and discuss them with peers and senior
researchers in a supportive and constructive environment. The consortium
is a full-day event held on the 29th November, 2016.

PhD candidates wishing to attend the consortium should submit a research
proposal that provides a concrete outline of the research, is based on
established literature, describes a clear method of inquiry, and presents
early data if available. Positions at the consortium will be offered
based on a review of the submitted proposals.

There is no fee to attend the consortium, however you must register for
at least one day of the OzCHI conference (30th Nov, 01st Dec, 2nd Dec).
The doctoral consortium includes catering (morning tea, lunch, afternoon
tea). It is arranged by HCI academics as a service to support our
doctoral student community and the research discipline. As we consider
this a very important event, each year we invite and support one or two
of our keynote speakers to act as responders.

Submissions should be in PDF format (see submission template below) and
emailed directly to the doctoral consortium chairs at
