=============== ISMAR 2018 | CALL FOR DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM================
ISMAR 2018
17th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR)
in Munich (Germany)

October 16-20, 2018

The ISMAR 2018 Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for Doctoral
students to present and receive feedback about their research in an
interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of mentors
selected from experienced 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 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 potentially be included in the conference
proceedings published in the IEEE digital library. Complimentary conference
registration will be available for selected participants.
Important Dates

   - Submission Deadline: *July 9th, 2018 (all deadlines: 23:59 AoE)*
   - Notifications: *August 2nd, 2018 (all deadlines: 23:59 AoE)*
   - Camera Ready: *August 9th, 2018 (all deadlines: 23:59 AoE)*
   - Event at IEEE ISMAR: *October 20th, 2018*


The objectives of the student consortium are to:

   - Serve: as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on
   students' current doctoral and masters' research and guidance on future
   research directions
   - Offer: each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from
   researchers and students outside of their own institution
   - Promote: the development of a supportive community of scholars with
   affinity to IEEE ISMAR, and a spirit of collaborative research.
   - Contribute: to the conference goals through interaction with other
   researchers and conference events

Submission Instructions

Submissions should be 4 pages in length including references. The content
should include an overview of your planned thesis work. You may
additionally also focus on a more specific area of the research if desired.
Ideal candidates will be in the early or mid stages of their PhD, and
should have a solid idea of their direction and topic, but should also have
room for improvement.

Submissions will have the option of being archived in the IEEExplore
digital library (either in the main conference proceedings or adjunct).
