GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM PAPERS
Submissions should describe PhD research that is at a stage where feedback from the international interactive TV/Media community might be of value. Thus, it is expected that students who will submit papers should have specified the research problems that their work will address, and have already made (or are close to making) their PhD research proposal. They should also have at least a year of work remaining to complete their PhD thesis.
Submissions are of a paper that should be between 2-4 pages (including references). The paper should be in regular SIGCHI paper format. They should be well organised and structured in a way that demonstrates the links between the concepts presented, and they should clearly specify:
- A real world problem that relates to and motivates the PhD
- The concrete research problem(s) that the (proposed) PhD is addressing and how this fits into the bigger picture of other research that addresses the real world problem
- The aims and objectives of the research
- The methods used to achieve the objectives and the proposed solution(s), including a brief description of work done so far and a tentative plan for future work
- The main contribution(s) of the research to interactive TV/media experiences and justification why the contribution will lead to a PhD
If you require any support in the preparation of your contribution due to mentoring requests, please get in touch with our Inclusion and Accessibility Chairs (email@example.com).
