ABOUT THE DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
We invite to both master and doctoral students in graduate programs related to human-computer interaction (HCI) to submit a research proposal to be considered in the Graduate Colloquium of the VII Mexican Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (MexIHC 2018).
The MexIHC 2018 doctoral colloquium provides an opportunity to graduate students to share their research results and ideas in an interdisciplinary workshop. This workshop is conducted 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 of their peers, who will eventually become their potential collaborators studying problems related to HCI in Mexico.
PREPARING THE SUBMISSIONS MATERIALS TO THE GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM
Each submission must be accompanied with the advisor´s support letter and the research proposal should include:
- Related Work
- Research objective
- Current results
- Potential conclusions
- Information or aspects where I may need help with?
The abstract of the research proposal must be written in English, use the Extended Abstract Format of the conference for up to 4 pages, and the student presenting at the colloquium should be the first author. The abstract will be published in the conference proceedings as extended abstracts. 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 sent to email@example.com in a PDF format.
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.
- June 18th, 2018 – Submission deadline (12pm (noon) PDT / 3pm EDT)
- July 30th, 2018 – Notification
- August 14th, 2018 – Camera-ready submission
Limited support for some participants is provided and accepted authors will be notified with further information.
