The Doctoral Consortium at IDC is intended to provide an opportunity 
for Ph.D. students to share and discuss their research with peers and 
panellists (faculty mentors). The Consortium will begin with a meal in 
the evening of the 4th June and this will be followed by an all day 
academic session on 5th June (Tuesday). 

At the Consortium, students will give short presentations of their 
current progress and will have this work discussed by the participants 
and panellists. Subjects to be covered in the presentations will 
include: a statement of the problem and research question(s), 
literature review, theory development and/or experimental work, 
research methodology and preliminary findings, if any. In addition to 
the formal sharing the Consortium will include some instruction and 
informal discussion. 

We anticipate inviting between 6 and 8 doctoral students but this will 
depend on the quality of the submissions and the resources available at 
the conference. In the event that the number of suitable participants 
significantly exceeds the places available, preference will be given to 
those students that seem most likely to benefit from the event. Student 
participants will have their abstracts published in the Conference 
proceedings and will be required to display a poster of their work 
during the conference. Applicants who are selected will receive 
complimentary conference registration, and may also be offered partial 
reimbursement of travel and accommodation (the amount of reimbursement 
is still to be finalised). 

Applying to the Doctoral Consortium 

Applicants should prepare: 

an extended abstract of their work in the conference format that 
describes their research. This should be no more than four pages and 
should include 
the problem(s) that the research is addressing; the research question
(s) that are being considered. 
the expected contribution(s) of the research to the IDC field. 
the work done to date 
the essential literature 
a single page word document that briefly describes the applicant and 
makes a case for attendance at the Doctoral Consortium. 
a letter of recommendation from the student's primary research 
supervisor (this can be sent separately, if desired), and 
an estimate of expenses (this will not be considered during the 
assessment process, it will be used to attract sponsors). 
Review Criteria 

Doctoral Consortium submissions will be judged on the following 

Originality of the work with respect to current concepts and 
Importance of the work with respect to fundamental issues and themes 
in Interaction Design and Children. 
Rigor and validity of claims, argumentation, methodology, results, and 
Participants in the consortium will be selected by the Doctoral 
Consortium Committee (Chair and Panellists). The review process will 
retain the anonymity of reviewers. 


Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review
