Doctoral students are invited to submit an application for the participation in the Doctoral Workshop to be held in conjunction with the Information Seeking in Context Conference on Tuesday, 20.September. During the Workshop, doctoral students will be invited to share their current dissertation work-in-progress with their peers and with an international panel of research mentors invited to take part in the Workshop.
The Workshop has the following objectives:
The Doctoral Workshop is free of charge. Participants in the workshop can attend the conference sessions for a discounted fee.
Participants for the Doctoral Workshop will be selected on the basis of their anticipated contribution to the workshop goals. Emphasis will be placed on forming a diverse group of high quality students with a view to selecting 20-24 participants. Students typically have settled on thesis directions, usually with a research proposal accepted by their thesis committee or departmental research committee. Further details on workshop activities will be available on the web site closer to the event.
To apply as a student participant in the Doctoral Workshop, prepare a submission package consisting of the following:
All Doctoral Workshop Submissions should be submitted electronically to Easy Chair. Fill in the Contact details Form, Title, Abstract and Keywords Form and choose “Doctoral Workshop Submission” category. After that, two files should be uploaded.
|Submission to doctoral workshop||10 March 2016|
|Notification of acceptance||17 April 2016|
|Deadline for final modified submission and supplemental information||20 June 2016|
|Doctoral workshop||20 September 2016|
Students accepted to participate in the workshop will be asked to provide supplemental information prior to the workshop that will help other participants understand the context of their research and the research challenges they wish to discuss at the workshop.
At the ISIC2016 Conference a special Poster Session is planned for doctoral student contributions. Your submitted thesis outline will automatically be entered for this poster session, unless you indicate otherwise. The guidelines for poster submissions will be provided later.” – June 14 update: the special Poster Session is cancelled, this additional task for students is not necessary.
The Doctoral Workshop Thesis Papers and Posters will not be published as part of the Conference proceedings in Information Research, but we intend to publish the Doctoral Workshop Thesis Papers and Posters as separate ISIC 2016 conference proceedings. Additionally, one possible outcome of the Workshop may be a decision to create an e-publication about the participants’ work. As part of the mentorship process characteristic of the Workshop, participants will receive feedback that will assist them with the publication of their work.View Fullscreen
