Call for Participation: Doctoral Colloquium at ECSCW 2017 (Sheffield, UK)

https://ecscw2017.org.uk/doctoral-colloquium/

The ECSCW 2017 Doctoral Colloquium provides an opportunity for doctoral 
students to discuss their research in an international forum under the 
guidance of a panel of experienced CSCW researchers. The Doctoral 
Colloquium will be held on Tuesday August 29 2017 as part of the 15th 
European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Sheffield, UK.

We invite students who are working in the broad field of CSCW to apply. 
The strongest candidates will be those students who have a 
well-established research proposal and have made some progress towards 
it, but still have time to benefit from advice and feedback by peers and 
senior colleagues. Selected candidates will be asked to give short, 
informal presentations during the Colloquium. These will be followed by 
extensive group discussion in a friendly and constructive workshop.

IMPORTANT: Students accepted for the ECSCW 2017 Doctoral Colloquium will 
also have the opportunity to attend free of charge a one-day program of 
three Masterclasses <https://ecscw2017.org.uk/masterclasses/> on CSCW 
concepts, methods and challenges delivered by senior researchers and 
taking place on Monday, 28th of August.

To apply, the following two components need to be submitted.

 1. Application, submitted by the student, that includes:

  * A 4-page overview of your doctoral research, stating your research
    questions, methodological approach, work/findings to date, next
