Doctor Colloqium

The ECSCW 2015 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 Sunday, 20 September 2015 as part of the 14th European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Oslo, Norway.

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.

To apply please submit the following documents:

1.  A 4-page overview of your doctoral research, stating your research questions, level of advancement, and expected contributions. Formatting instructions and paper templates are available from the ECSCW 2015 website. Submissions should include names, affiliations and contact information.

2.  A short (2-3 paragraph) biography.

3.  A paragraph stating what you hope/expect to gain from attending the ECSCW 2015 Doctoral Colloquium.

4. A letter from your supervisor indicating that they support your application to the ECSCW 2015 Doctoral Colloquium and that they agree that your research is at an appropriate stage for participation. These letters should also indicate how you and other students might benefit from your participation in the colloquium.

All files should be submitted via email to ina.wagner@tuwien.ac.at . Please add files separately to the appropriate fields on the submission page. Here are templates: word-templatepdf-template and LaTeX-template.
