IUI 2019 Student Consortium Call for Papers

The IUI 2019 Student Consortium is intended to provide an opportunity for  
Doctoral and advanced Masters students to present and receive feedback  
about their research in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance  
of a panel of mentors selected from senior people in the field. We invite  
students who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their  
research to use this unique opportunity to share their work with students  
in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field. The  
consortium will be organized with 8 to 12 presentations by the students,  
whose applications have been selected by the Student Consortium chairs and  
potentially other reviewers. The strongest candidates will be those who  
have a clear topic and research approach, and have made some progress, but  
who are not so far along in their research that they can no longer make  
changes. The final version of accepted SC submissions will be included in  
the main conference proceedings published in the ACM DL.

Complimentary/reduced conference registration will be available for  
students. Student Consortium participants will also be given high priority  
when applying for the student travel awards. Moreover, we are working to  
provide partial reimbursement of travel/accommodation expenses  
specifically for the participants of the Student Consortium. More  
information will come soon.

The objectives of the student consortium are to:
1- Serve as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on students'  
current doctoral and masters' research and guidance on future research  
2- Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from  
researchers and students outside of their own institution
3- Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a  
spirit of collaborative research
4- Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other  
researchers and conference events
