This is a new event designed to help PhD students in the multimodal interaction theme to present their ideas and get feedback from experienced researchers in a friendly environment
**Held in Glasgow the day before the SICSA PhD conference**
**Application deadline: May 18, 2012**
The SICSA MMI Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for doctoral students in Scotland to explore and develop their research interests in a friendly workshop guided by experienced SICSA researchers. The Doctoral Consortium will allow you to present your ideas and get feedback from a panel of experienced PhD supervisors and researchers, and the other students attending. This is a great way to get feedback on your work in a friendly and helpful environment before you submit your thesis.
The SICSA MMI Doctoral Consortium will be hosted in the School of Computing at the University of Glasgow on June 19th, the day before the SICSA PhD conference. SICSA doctoral consortium attendees will have the additional hotel night paid for by SICSA.
All doctoral students in Scottish universities who work in an area covered by SICSA MMI are eligible to apply (MMI is the multimodal interaction theme, http://www.sicsa.ac.uk/themes/multimodal-interaction). We particularly encourage PhD students in their second or third year to apply. Please note that both you and your supervisor should be clear on what you can contribute to the doctoral consortium.
How to apply:
Applicants should submit a CV, a description of their research on two pages of A4 with a minimum font size of 10 pt, and a letter of recommendation from their supervisor. The research description should include the main hypotheses investigated and may include a description of results obtained so far or results expected in the near future.
In addition the supervisor should write a short letter of recommendation that explains what the applicant would contribute to the consortium.
Your application package containing a CV, a 2-page description of your research, and a letter of recommendation from your supervisor should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before May 18, 2012.
Deadline for application: May 18, 2012.
Notification of acceptance: May 25, 2012.
Date of SICSA MMI doctoral consortium: June 19, 2012.
