ACM IUI 2021 Student Consortium Call for Papers

Important Dates

Submission deadline: January 4th, 2021

Notification: February 1st, 2021

Camera-ready deadline: February 15th, 2021

Student Consortium day: TBA

Overview

The IUI 2021 Student Consortium is intended to provide an opportunity for Doctoral and advanced Masters students to present and receive feedback about their research in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of mentors selected from senior researchers in the field. We invite students who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their research to use this unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation. Submissions will be selected by the SC chairs and potentially other reviewers. The strongest candidates will be those who have a clear topic and research approach, and have made some progress but are not so far along in their research so that they can still reshape their research topic or approach. The final version of accepted SC submissions will be included in the main conference proceedings published in the ACM Digital Library. SC participants will also present their research in the poster session during the main technical program of the conference.



We are working to provide partial reimbursement of travel/accommodation expenses, as well as complimentary/reduced conference registration specifically for the participants of the student consortium.

Note: IUI 2020 participants

We also aim to invite as many of the IUI 2020 Student Consortium’s participants who did not get to present their work as possible. The SC 2021 chairs will contact each participant directly to evaluate this option.

Objectives

The objectives of the student consortium are to:

  1.  Serve as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on students' current doctoral and masters' research and guidance on future research directions
  2.  Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from researchers and students outside of their own institution
  3.  Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research
  4.  Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and conference events
