Graduate Colloquium


We invite to both master and doctoral students studying in graduate programs related to human-computer interaction (HCI) to submit a research proposal to be considered in the Graduate Colloquium of the VI Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (MexIHC 2016).


The MexIHC 2016 doctoral colloquium provides an opportunity to graduate students to share their research results and ideas in and interdisciplinary workshop, under the constructive guidance of a panel of distinguished researchers. Presenting at a graduate colloquium will help students to present their work before their dissertation defense and receive guidance during their research process. Moreover, student participants will have the opportunity to find out the work their peers, who will eventually become their potential collaborators of researchers studying problems related to HCI in Mexico.

Preparing the submissions materials to the graduate colloquim

Each research proposal should include:

  • 1) Introduction
  • 2) Related Work
  • 3) Research objective
  • 4) Methods
  • 5) Current results
  • 6) Potential conclusions
  • 7) With what I need help with?
  • 8) References

The abstract of the research proposal could be either written in english or spanish, should use the format of the conference for up to 2 pages, and the student presenting at the colloquium should be the first author. The abstract will be published in the conference proceedings. Student participants should be prepared to give a talk for around 10 minutes about their work during the colloquium. At the end of each talk, we will held a group discussion about their work. Research proposals should be uploaded in a PDF format.


Selection criteria

This call is open for all graduate students with a research topic approved by their institution and whose dissertation defense is not scheduled before getting the feedback of the colloquium so the student could clearly benefit from such feedback before graduating.

Clarity and quality of the submitted research proposal will be the primary criteria for the selection of the works, with not much emphasis on the degree of advancement of the research.
