A call for submissions has been posted for the CSCW 2014 Doctoral Colloquium, to be held February 15-16, 2014, in Baltimore, MD. Submissions are due October 7th.
The CSCW Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners. The colloquium itself will begin with dinner Saturday night February 15, 2014 and continue all day Sunday February 16, 2014.
We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform CSCW, including anthropology, sociology, computer science, cognitive science, organizational studies, and related fields. We are particularly interested in applications from institutions and groups that have not traditionally been well-represented at past CSCW conferences.
Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established direction of research relevant to CSCW, but whose research would benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior colleagues at the Doctoral Colloquium. Preference will be given to students who have a defined topic and program of work e.g., who have proposed their topics and are within 2 years of graduation within a 5 year program or are half way through a 3 (or 4) year program.
