Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium is a full-day physical event for PhD researchers at Keele University on Monday 11th July 2022. It is chaired by Professor Alan Dix as part of the 2022 BCS Human-Computer Interaction Conference.

The Doctoral Consortium is a place for PhD students to share their work and experiences amongst a supportive group of peers and small panel of HCI experts. Participants will also have the opportunity to display an A1 poster of their work at the main BCS HCI conference on 12-13th July.

Past Doctoral Consortia have been highly recommended by attendees. (You can see information here about the 2020 Doctoral Consortium, including links about the event and the proceedings).

The registration fee for the Doctoral Consortium is £50 and this will be waived for students attending the conference days (12th and 13th July).

We hope you can join us at Keele University!

Call for Doctoral Consortium Papers: Deadline 29th April 2022 (AoE)

For submission to the Doctoral Consortium, please see the guidance below and provide the following two documents:

i) a 2-page pdf paper about your PhD research using the eWiC paper template. Use the Microsoft Word or Latex eWiC publication template and follow the eWiC author guidance. You should include a short summary of your research aims, research questions and plans or progress. This paper can be co-authored by supervisors or research collaborators. Accepted papers will be published in a combined adjunct proceedings after the conference.

ii) a short summary of less than 1 page outlining the following:
• Why you believe that attendance at the Doctoral Consortium will benefit you
• How you feel you could contribute to the other participants
Selection will be based on creating a diverse group of participants at different stages of their work, who can learn from each other and the expert panel. Do not feel you have to oversell your work: be honest about successes, problems and experiences. (The eWiC template is not required for this short summary).

Submit both documents to the Doctoral Consortium track using EasyChair by clicking on the following URL:
