Subject: ICA CAT Doctoral Consortium Deadline Extended until March 15th


Date and Time:
Monday, 17 June 2013; 9:00 – 17:00

Location: Hilton London Metropole

Cost: $75.00 USD (some scholarships available, see below)

Organizers: Miriam Metzger, UCSB; Nicole Kramer, U Duisburg-Essen and Lee
Humphreys, Cornell U

Description: The consortium brings together PhD
candidates working on Communication and Technology to give them the
opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructive and
international atmosphere. The goals of the event are to provide feedback
and advice to participating PhD candidates on their in-progress research
thesis. Moreover, the doctoral consortium will provide the opportunity to
meet experts as well as fellow PhD candidates from different backgrounds
working on related topics.

Students who would like to participate in the
doctoral consortium are invited to submit applications as per the
instructions listed below. During the consortium, students will be invited
to present their work and they will receive feedback from their fellow
students and faculty participants, all of whom will have read the
proposals in advance of the Doctoral Consortium. In addition, at least one
faculty participant will be assigned to respond in detail to each
proposal. Besides the presentations of proposals, there will also be
professional development sessions on topics such as ethics, research
methods, publishing the dissertation, and positioning one’s work for the
job market.

Applicants must be advanced to candidacy and have their
dissertation proposal topic. Ideally, students will be in the early stages
of their dissertation, where feedback would be most helpful in refining
and advancing their work. To apply, students must submit a proposal
describing their research as follows:
•	Submissions must be related to the
working area of the Communication and Technology Division of ICA
Proposals must identify the significant problems in the field of research,
briefly outline current knowledge of the problem domain, and clearly
formulate a research question
•	Proposals must outline the proposed
research approach, methods, and results obtained so far
•	Submissions must
not exceed 6000 words, and must include name and affiliation of the PhD
•	Applications should be accompanied by a short letter of
recommendation from the advisor stating how the PhD candidate can benefit
from participation in the Doctoral Consortium

The proposal and letter of
recommendation must be submitted as one PDF document and sent as an
attachment in an email to Miriam Metzger, metzger at comm.ucsb.edu. The new
deadline for submission is March 15, 2013. Submitted proposals will be
reviewed by the members of the program committee based on significance of
research, specificity of research topic and/or questions, clarity of
writing, and degree to which the student can benefit from expert guidance
and feedback.

To help ensure the consortium best meets the needs of its
members, limited financial assistance will be made possible by the CAT
Division. Please note in your application if you would like to be
considered for financial support to cover your costs for participation in
the CAT Doctoral Consortium (this support would cover only the $75
participation fee and not travel to London).
