3rd CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Doctoral Colloquium

http://ieeevis.org/year/2014/info/call-participation/doctoral-colloquium

We solicit submissions to the doctoral colloquium (DC) for IEEE VIS 2014.
The DC is a single-day invitation-only event taking place the day before
IEEE VIS where Ph.D. students in any visualization field---preferably those
at the proposal defense stage or equivalent---present their proposed
dissertation work and receive feedback from leading senior visualization
researchers. We invite contributions from the scientific visualization,
information visualization, and visual analytics student communities.

The colloquium will allow students to discuss their research directions in
a supportive atmosphere with a panel of distinguished leaders and with
their peers. Students can expect helpful feedback and fresh perspectives on
their research topics and possible career paths, and will have the
opportunity to interact closely with expert researchers in their field. The
colloquium will support community-building by connecting beginning and
advanced researchers.

The DC is open to Ph.D. students in all stages of their studies, regardless
of whether they are presenting research work at the main conference or not.
Only selected applicants will be allowed to participate in the colloquium,
and will be expected to attend the full day of events. Preference will be
given to students who have formulated a dissertation topic but are still a
year or more away from graduating. In North American terms, this
corresponds to students that will or have recently defended their thesis
proposal. Students who are in the process of formulating their research
topic are particularly encouraged to apply, as this is the time where
external feedback can have most impact. It is our experience that students
who participate in the DC too early in their studies will not be able to
get focused and useful feedback, whereas participating too late means that
any significant feedback received will not be possible to incorporate in
the student's dissertation due to time constraints.

All research topics suitable for the IEEE SciVis, IEEE InfoVis, and IEEE
VAST main programs as well as associated workshops and symposia are
appropriate for the Doctoral Colloquium.

FORMAT

The colloquium will likely consist of both parallel sessions of student
presentations as well as common discussions with the expert panelists. A
lunch is also planned that will give student participants the opportunity
to interact more informally with panelists.

FUNDING

Contingent upon pending requests for external sponsorship of the VIS DC, we
might be able to partially fund the travel, conference registration, and
lodging for some accepted DC student participants.

DEADLINE

The deadline for DC submissions is May 10, 2014.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Applicants to the Doctoral Colloquium should submit:



   -
   http://ieeevis.org/sites/ieeevis.org/themes/visweek/images/menu-leaf.gif);
   background-repeat: no-repeat;">A four-page summary of their thesis
   research, including the problem being addressed, methodology and plan of
   research, a description of the progress to date, and the type of input
   expected from DC panelists. Please distinguish between work that has been
   accomplished and that which remains to be completed. The writing should be
   in a proposal format to facilitate feedback from the panelists as to
   validity of your problem and the efficacy of your approach.
   -
   http://ieeevis.org/sites/ieeevis.org/themes/visweek/images/menu-leaf.gif);
   background-repeat: no-repeat;">An email from the student's advisor
   supporting the student's attendance at the colloquium and confirming that
   the student is in a good position to benefit from participating. Note that
   this should NOT be a letter of recommendation; a brief statement of support
   is sufficient. The e-mail should be sent directly to
   [log in to unmask]
   -
   http://ieeevis.org/sites/ieeevis.org/themes/visweek/images/menu-leaf.gif);
   background-repeat: no-repeat;">(Optional) A draft poster in PDF format
   (see below.)



Student submissions should be emailed to [log in to unmask]
Formatting guidelines and LaTeX/Word templates can be found at
http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html.

Student submissions will be peer-reviewed and selections will be made on
the basis of their contribution to the colloquium's goals, strength of
research direction, and the advisor's assessment. Accepted submissions will
be printed for colloquium participants.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS

Accepted participants of the Doctoral Colloquium will also be allowed to
present their work as a poster that will be displayed together with the
regular poster program. Please consider including a draft poster with your
DC submission. Participants may be asked to refine their posters and
summaries based upon reviewer feedback. The poster session chairs will have
a final say in accepting all poster submissions, even for DC participants.
Also note that DC posters will NOT appear in the official IEEE VIS poster
proceedings.

The posters themselves have no predefined formatting, but dimensions may
not exceed A0 paper size (841mm x 1189mm / 33.1" x 46.8"). Participants are
responsible for bringing a hardcopy poster for display during VisWeek. They
should be available at the poster to discuss their work during the
scheduled evening poster session(s).
