**** Career Development Symposium @ OzCHI 2017
*** Applications due 4 Sept 2017
** Details: *

Aimed at early career academics and researchers (postdocs, early career 
faculty), this inaugural one day OzCHI Symposium will provide 
discipline-specific career guidance and development. Participants will 
get the opportunity to learn from senior HCI mentors as well as from 
their peers, and will come away with a better understanding of how they 
want to develop as a successful HCI researcher. The event is open to HCI 
people who have received their PhDs in the past five years or so.

The symposium will run according to open space principles: that is, the 
participants will define the agenda to ensure that it best meets their 
needs. Each participant will be given a short time to introduce 
themselves, and will get feedback on his/her current professional 
activities. There will also be a panel of senior HCI experts who can 
share stories of their academic history and experiences. The rest of the 
agenda is for the participants to define! This process will be 
facilitated by the organizers and supported by senior faculty mentors, 
who will be present throughout the day to provide advice to participants.

The agenda is open, but example topics might 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.

The Symposium will be modeled after the successful Career Development 
events at CHI16 & CHI17.
