SICSA MMI Doctoral Consortium

Date(s) - 11/06/2013
All Day

A426F, Govan Mbeki Building, Glasgow Caledonian University

Following on from the success of last years’ inaugural MMI Doctoral Consortium we have decided to run a similar event in conjunction with the SICSA PhD conference at the University of Stirling in 2013. The event is designed to help PhD students in the multimodal interaction theme to present their ideas and get feedback from experienced researchers in a friendly environment.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held in Stirling on 11 June, the day before the SICSA PhD conference in 2013.

Please note the deadline for applications is May 24, 2013.

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 at the University of Stirling on June 11th, 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). We encourage applications from students in all years of study but particularly those in their second or third year. 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 on or before May 24, 2013.

Important dates:
Deadline for application: May 24, 2013.
Notification of acceptance: May 31, 2013.
Date of SICSA MMI doctoral consortium: June 11, 2013.
