All Day

University of Dundee

Following on from previous successful SICSA HCI Doctoral Consortium events, we have decided to continue this annual event at the University of Dundee on Monday 24th August 2015. The event is designed to help PhD students in the HCI theme to present their ideas and gather feedback from experienced researchers in a friendly environment.

The SICSA HCI 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, as well as reflect on your future career options.
