*Call for Participation: ISS 2017 Doctoral Symposium*
Brighton, UK 17-20 October
*Important Dates: *
Tuesday, 1 August 2017: Deadline for submissions
Tuesday, 15 August 2017: Author Notifications
Monday, 28 August 2017: Final Manuscript Submission
The ISS Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet
and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced
Interactive Surface researchers in an informal and interactive setting.
Students should submit a paper that describes: the problem that the
thesis aims to address; the broad approach and how it builds upon and
goes beyond the most central of relevant previous work; the work
completed and the plan for the full dissertation work; and open
questions/issues for discussion and/or what you want to get out of
participation in the symposium. Completed work may be presented as an
overview or highlighting a particularly important part in depth.
Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in the ISS conference
companion distributed at the conference.
Each submission will be reviewed by both DC chairs to assess its
suitability for the DC, as well as additional expert reviewers when
necessary. This will be based on whether the work is sufficiently mature
to present but still early enough for the student to benefit from the
feedback and experience.
Formatting Instructions for student application (NOTE: 2014 Extended
abstract version): http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform
1. Student application: extended abstract and draft poster
2. Supporting letter from lead supervisor
1. Every submission should include both an extended abstract (no more
than six pages in ACM landscape format) and a draft poster design. You
may also submit a video and you are encouraged to do so if this
clarifies the work, as is often the case in ISS interfaces. The extended
abstract should be in the 2014 SIGCHI extended abstract format. (Note
that this format utilizes the "Lastname, F.M." author-name reference
style, not the more recent "Firstname M. Lastname" convention.). You can
download Word and LaTeX templates from the sigchi website.
Submissions should be converted to PDF and emailed directly to
[log in to unmask] by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on August
Note: where video or poster submissions are too large to be emailed,
please provide access via an online folder e.g., Dropbox.
Submissions must include a draft poster design, also in PDF format. This
does not need to be a complete final version, but should give a sense of
what is to be presented and allow for constructive feedback on the
design and content. The doctoral symposium posters are intended for
display along with the other posters at the conference, and so should
follow the same guidelines as described here:
http://iss2017.acm.org/authors/posters/. Posters will be shown during
the main ISS poster session, and will not be used during the doctoral
Submissions (both abstract and poster) should not be anonymised for review.
2 .In addition, a supporting letter from the lead supervisor should be
emailed directly to [log in to unmask] This should indicate
support for your application to the Doctoral Symposium and that they
agree that your research is at an appropriate stage for participation.
It should also indicate how you and other students might benefit from
your participation in the colloquium.
