Call for Submissions: Career Development Forum at CHI 2017

To be hosted at CHI 2017 in Denver, Colorado (May 6-11 2011)


This one day Forum will help new PHDs develop their careers in HCI through intensive interaction with senior mentors from academia and industry who have been successful in research and professional service. The event is open to all members of the HCI community who have received their PHDs in the past five years.


The Forum will be modeled after the CHI Doctoral Consortia and 2016ís first successful Career Development event. Each participant will be given 20 minutes to present and get feedback on his/her research and professional activities.

Topics will include:

  *   Building a cohort group of fellow HCI researchers.

  *   Establishing a successful career path in academia, industry, and the nonprofit sector

  *   Selecting and developing a research trajectory.

  *   Identifying potential funding sources and preparing proposals.

  *   Getting involved in professional service.

  *   Communicating your work and strengthening your public profile

  *   Balancing work, family and social life.
