The HCOMP 2014 Doctoral Consortium will provide doctoral students with a unique opportunity to meet each other and experienced researchers in the field. The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are:
Students will be mentored by a group of faculty who are leaders in the diverse specialties that make up the HCOMP field.
Thanks to generous funding from the the National Science Foundation (NSF), we will be able to support most expenses associated with attendance (e.g., airfare, one night of hotel expenses, conference registration, and meals on the day of the Consortium) for all accepted students.
The Consortium will take place on November 2, 2014 in Pittsburgh, PA, immediately before the main HCOMP 2014 conference. Planned Activities: The day will feature student presentations with plenary discussions, individual meetings with experienced researchers, and highly interactive networking sessions over meals and breaks.
Prospective attendees should have written, or be close to completing, a thesis proposal (or equivalent). We will give preference to students who are far enough from completing their thesis that the feedback they receive at the event can impact their work. Before submitting, students should discuss this criterion with their advisor or supervisor, who must write a short letter of support as part of the application. Those accepted are required to attend the event in person.
Selection will be based upon the expected potential of both the student and their proposed work, as well as the expected benefit to the student from participation. Priority will be given to students whose research goes beyond locally available expertise at their home institutions.
Applicants must submit: 1) a solely-authored written paper, 2) a paragraph motivation for attending; and 3) supporting advisor paragraph.
Papers must be submitted via the CMT online submission system. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that their submissions use no unusual format features and are printable on a standard printer. Submissions will be reviewed by the members of the Doctoral Consortium’s Program Committee.
