SICSA HCI Doctoral Consortium 2014
Following on from the success of the previous 2 years’ MMI Doctoral Consortium, we are running a similar event in conjunction with the SICSA PhD conference at St.Andrews University in 2014. The event is designed to help PhD students in the Human Computer Interaction theme to present their ideas and get feedback from experienced researchers in a friendly environment.
Please note the deadline for applications is May 24, 2014.
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 submit your thesis.
The Doctoral Consortium will be held in St Andrews on 11 June, the day after the 2014 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 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.
