                      CALL FOR PAPERS
Doctoral Consortium at ACM Hypertext 2015 (http://ht.acm.org/ht2015/)

** Please see details below about student travel grants
--------------------------------------------------------------------


Cyprus, 1-4 September 2015
=====================
Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: June 12, 2015
Notification to authors: July 10, 2015


Doctoral Consortium Chairs:
=====================
- Denis Parra, Catholic University of Chile, Chile
- Christoph Trattner, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway


Goals and Format:
=====================

The Hypertext 2015 Doctoral Consortium aims to provide qualified Ph.D.
students with the opportunity to present their on-going research to the
hypertext community. The Doctoral Consortium will be an integral part of
the Hypertext 2015 program, and will provide a constructive atmosphere and
a forum for Ph.D. students to receive useful feedback from the leading
experts, to exchange ideas, compare approaches and meet fellow researchers
in the field. Doctoral students are invited to apply to present their
research to field scholars who will provide constructive comments about
their work.


Submissions (due June 12, 2015):
======================

Submissions will be done through easychair
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hypertext2015 and should be related
to the conference topics:

- Data Connectivity
- Digital Connectivity
- Digital Humanities


See more details about the topics at
http://ht.acm.org/ht2015/callforpapers.html

Submissions describe Ph.D. research that is at a stage where feedback from
the broader hypertext community might be of value. Thus, we expect students
to be close to presenting their thesis proposal, or to have presented the
proposal with at least a year of work remaining before completion of their
thesis.


Format:
=======================

Submissions should include an extended abstract (up to four pages in the
ACM SIG Proceedings format specified by ACM Hypertext 2015, including
figures and references), which covers the following aspects:


- The problem(s) that the proposed research is addressing.
- The main contribution(s) of the research to the HT field in the context
of existing research.
- The proposed solution(s), including a brief description of results
achieved so far and a tentative plan for future work.


A revised version of this extended abstract will be included in the
Hypertext 2015 Extended Proceedings, which will be published open-access at
CEUR-WS.


Eligibility:
=======================

The ACM Hypertext 2015 DC welcomes contributions from doctoral students
currently  registered in a PhD program. Ideal candidates should have worked
on their dissertation for  some months; thus, they should have chosen a
research topic and possibly have also selected theoretical and
methodological approaches. Selection of participants will be based  on the
quality of the submission and its relevance to the conference topics of
interest.


Travel Grants:
=======================

SIGWEB in kindly offering up to US$7,000 (in total) in funding for student
travel grants to allow more students to take part in the DC; please find
more information at http://ht.acm.org/ht2015/support.html and apply as
early as possible to increase your chances. The application deadline is
13th of July, 2015.
