We invite applications to the CHI 2019 Career Development Symposium.

This one-day Symposium aims to help members of the broad HCI community
navigate the challenges encounter within the first few years of completing
a PhD. Job hunting, interviewing, navigating new contexts such as a junior
academic position, applying for funding as a first time project
investigator, learning to adapt to the culture of an industry-based
workplace, supervising graduate students or full-time employees – these
are just a few of the scenarios recent PhD graduates find themselves in.
Within HCI, one may encounter more discipline-specific challenges, such as
keeping up with the CHI publication cycles while taking on new
administrative duties. The CHI community, however, strives to be
collectively supportive and inclusive of researchers at all stages of
their career – this is even more important as many of our design
approaches are rooted in empathy for and empowerment of participants. By
more actively supporting each other as researchers in our career paths, we
can better grow as a community, and reflect it back into our collective
body of practice. The Early Career Development Symposium has been proposed
(and held yearly since 2016) to provide a more formal mentoring venue that
reflects our aims as a community to more meaningfully support each other.

The event is open for applications from all members of the international
HCI community who have received their PhDs in the past five years.
