CALL FOR PAPERS DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM (DC)

To be held in conjunction with the International Conference on User
Modeling Adaptation and Personalization: UMAP 2010 in the Big Island
of Hawaii, between 20-24 June 2010,  http://www.hawaii.edu/UMAP2010/


 **************************************************
CALL FOR PAPERS

DEADLINE: January 31, 2010
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE: March 15, 2010

**************************************************

The UMAP 2010 Conference will include, as usual, a Doctoral Consortium
Session. This has been a tradition of UMAP Conferences since 1994,
where lively and useful discussions enabled students to receive
suggestions and feedback about their on-going research, and allowed
more experienced participants to hear about the emerging work in the
field. Students will benefit in several ways by participating in the
consortium; primarily by presenting work to a knowledgeable audience,
but also by meeting established researchers and other graduate
students working in the field.


FORMAT OF THE CONSORTIUM
Doctoral students are invited to apply to present their research to
scholars and researchers in the field who will provide constructive
comments about their work. Students are expected to document in a
brief submission the thesis topic, the approach to be taken and the
amount of work that has already been completed. Good quality
applications will be chosen by the consortium committee to present
their work in a short (15-20 minute) presentation, which may include a
demonstration if appropriate.

Each student will be assigned a mentor who will provide feedback on
the studentís work, and collate feedback from other Program Committee
members. Students whose submissions are selected for presentation will
be asked to submit a short list of questions to the committee to help
identify areas where the students feel that the Committee can be of
assistance. After the presentation, these and other questions can be
discussed with the audience of the Consortium.

The Doctoral Consortium will be conducted in one or two separate
sessions, totaling about 3-4 hours in length. A limited number of
fellowships will be available to enable students with accepted
contributions to participate in the meeting.

Accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings, which
will be published as a book by Springer. In addition, the Proceedings
will be made available on the World Wide Web.


SUGGESTED TOPICS
Just as the research in User Modeling spans different areas, graduate
research may cover a wide range of topics, but should contribute to
some aspect of user modeling and user-adapted interaction. These
include (but are not limited to) the topic areas listed in the general
Call for Papers http://www.hawaii.edu/UMAP2010/cfp.txt
