** ACM IUI 2024 - Call for Doctoral Consortium Submissions**

29th International ACM Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (ACM IUI 2024)

Greenville, South Carolina, USA,

March 18-21, 2024  https://iui.acm.org/2024/




** Overview **



The IUI 2024 Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides students an opportunity 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—the ideal participant is a doctoral student about two years from finishing their Ph.D. We will also consider advanced Master's students and junior Ph.D. students provided their research plan is sufficiently developed to benefit from the discussion at the DC.



Submissions will be selected by the DC chairs and potentially other reviewers. The strongest candidates will be those who have a clear topic and research approach and who have made some progress, but are not too far along in their research so that they can still reshape their research topic or approach.



The final version of accepted Doctoral Consortium submissions will be included in the main conference proceedings published in the ACM Digital Library. The Doctoral Consortium workshop will take place as a separate session in parallel to workshops and tutorials, and DC participants will have the opportunity to present their research in the poster session during the main program.



Complimentary/reduced conference registration will be available for students. Doctoral Consortium participants will also be given high priority when applying for the student travel awards, under the precondition that they agree to assist as student volunteers in the organization of the event.


** Objectives **



The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are to:

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