SICSA Human Computing Interaction Research Theme Doctoral Consortium will take place on Wednesday 29 June (the day after the SICSA PhD Conference) at the University of Strathclyde.
The SICSA HCI Doctoral Consortium (HCI is the Human Computer Interaction theme formerly known as Multimodal Interaction/ MMI) 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 complete your important thesis.
All doctoral students in Scottish universities who work in an area covered by SICSA HCI are eligible to apply. We encourage applications from PhD students in all years of study but particularly those in their second or third year. Please note that you must have the support of your supervisor in applying to participate in the doctoral consortium.

Please send a single email with a subject heading of SICSA HCI DC to Marilyn Lennon on or before 5pm on May 31, 2016.
The email should contain the following in .doc or .pdf format: A short CV (max 2 pages) A description of your research (max of two pages of A4, with a minimum font size of 10 pt). This should include the main hypotheses/ research questions under investigation, and a description either of results obtained so far or of results expected in the near future.
A short letter of recommendation from your supervisor, explaining how you may benefit from the Doctoral Consortium.
