The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet  
and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced CSCW  
researchers and practitioners. The colloquium itself will begin with  
dinner Saturday night February 6, 2010 and continue all day Sunday  
February 7.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches  
that inform CSCW, including anthropology, sociology, computer science,  
cognitive science, organizational studies, and related fields. We are  
particularly interested in applications from institutions and groups  
that have not traditionally been well-represented at past CSCW  

Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established  
direction of research relevant to CSCW, and who would benefit from  
attendance at the Doctoral Colloquium; preference will be given to  
students within 2 years of graduation.

The Colloquium committee will select approximately 15 participants who  
will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work  
during the Colloquium, to be followed by extensive group discussion.  
Participants will also present their research in an interactive poster  
session during the main technical program of the conference.

Applicants should submit the following items (by email to [log in to unmask] 
  with the subject line CSCW2010 Colloquium Submission.):

     * A two-page overview of your doctoral research that describes  
your research question, work in progress, and expected contributions.  
This overview should also include (1) a paragraph that articulates  
what you hope to get from attending the CSCW Doctoral Colloquium, and  
(2) an abstract of no more than 100 words. This overview should be  
formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Proceedings Template (two-column  
format, same as for papers).

Submissions must be in PDF format.
     * A short (2-3 paragraph) biographical sketch, in PDF format
     * An up-to-date curriculum vita, in PDF format
     * Optionally, one publication as an indicator of your progress in  
your research, in PDF format The above items should be combined into  
one PDF file named YOURNAME_CSCWDC2010.pdf (substitute your actual  
name where it reads YOURNAME)
     * An email letter from your supervisor sent to [log in to unmask] 
, indicating that they support your application to the colloquium and  
that they agree that your research is at an appropriate stage for  
participation. These letters should also make reference to how you  
might benefit from the Doctoral Colloquium and how they expect that  
you might benefit the other students in this group experience. The  
email should have CSCW Doctoral Colloquium:  + YOUR NAME in the  
subject header.

Submissions should be made by email to [log in to unmask] with the  
subject line CSCW2010 Colloquium Submission. All questions can also  
be directed to this address.

All submissions must be received by the chairs by 5:00pm (17:00)  
Pacific Time on October 18, 2009. Submissions received after this date  
will not be considered. All submissions will be acknowledged by email.

cover some portion of air fare for domestic (US) participants; non-US
