a virtual venue of BCS HCI 2020

Applications re-opened for the BCS HCI 2020 – Doctoral Consortium!

Main event: Monday 6th July 2020 ... but with more as well!


BCS HCI 2020 has been postponed until next year, but a year is a long time
in your research, so we are continuing as a virtual event. It will be
different from originally planned, but we hope no less supportive for
attendees in the UK and wider afield.

In this difficult time we’d like to support as many students as possible.
The main event on Monday 6th July will need to be for a limited number of
selected participants. However, both during that day and in the period
before, we are also planning a series of open events.

The Doctoral Consortium is intended as a place for PhD students to share
their work and their experiences amongst a supportive group of their peers
and small panel of HCI experts.


Please submit your proposal through the EasyChair submission system (link
on the DC micro-site).

Your submission should be 4 pages (+references) and should include the

   - Your topic and your motivations for pursuing it
   - Your current stage in your PhD programme
   - Why you believe that attendance at the DC will benefit you
   - How you feel you could contribute to the other participants
   - Useful resources and open questions

This should be structured as outlined on the submission pages of the DC

Selection will be based on creating a diverse group of participants at
different stages of their work, who can learn from each other and the
expert panel.  Do not feel you have to oversell your work: be honest about
successes, problems and experiences.


We look forward to seeing your submissions.

Alan Dix (Doctoral Consortium Chair) and the BCS HCI 2020 team
