Graduate Student Symposium: 17th June 2013

The Graduate Student Symposium is a forum in which postgraduate students meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners. The Symposium itself will be held on the 17th of June, with a table for the participants to be reserved during the conference dinner. We welcome applications in any of the disciplines and approaches concerned with Creativity and Cognition (see the Call for Papers for further details on topics).

Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established direction of research relevant to Creativity and Cognition, but whose research would benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior colleagues at the Graduate Student Symposium. Each application should provide:

* A short written paper (no more than TWO pages in SIGCHI format)
* A brief letter of support from the student’s principal adviser
* A brief 2-3 paragraph biographical sketch on a separate page together with a list of any relevant publications

The paper should describe ongoing work and summarize the student’s thesis, or highlight a particular aspect – therefore it should be first-authored by the student. Advisors’ or supervisors’ letters of support should indicate that the work has reached the appropriate level of maturity for presentation in this venue. The letter of support and biographical sketch should be submitted together with the paper on the conference submission site. Please note that Graduate Student Symposium submission, unlike other paper submissions, is not anonymous. For templates, please see the conference website under Submission.

Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the symposium. Selected students will be expected to give a short presentation of their work, followed by discussion with the panel and the other student participants.
