#### ACM MobileHCI 2012 || Call for Doctoral Consortium####
#### San Francisco, September 21-24, 2012 ####

The Mobile HCI 2012 Doctoral Consortium track provides an opportunity for
doctoral students to discuss their research both with other students and
with leading experts within the field. The consortium will take the form of
a workshop where established Mobile HCI scholars take active part as
discussants. The purpose is for students to receive constructive feedback on
their thesis work so far, get advice about future developments, and share
ideas and experiences with students in related areas.

Participants should have advanced beyond the introductory stage in their
thesis work, and be actively engaged in the exploration of an HCI topic. We
also expect DC participants to have completed at least one year of graduate
work to be eligible for participation. We will give preference to applicants
beyond the proposal stage and well into their dissertation research.
Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to
the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the consortium.

The proposals will be evaluated by a review committee. Approximately 8
participants will be selected to give a short presentation of their research
topic, followed by a discussion within the group of students and experts.

A travel stipend and free registration to the MobileHCI conference will be
provided to each selected participant.
