ACM IUI 2018 *Student Consortium* Call for Papers

Important Dates:
* Submission Deadline: November 6th, 2017  (AoE 23:59)
* Notification: November 27th, 2017
* Camera-ready Deadline: December 24th, 2017
* Doctoral Consortium Day: March 8th, 9th or 10th, 2018 (Days TBD)

The IUI 2018 Student Consortium provides an opportunity for Doctoral
and advanced Masters students to present and receive feedback about
their research in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of
a panel of mentors selected from senior people in the field. We invite
students who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on
their research to use this unique opportunity to share their work with
students in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the
field. The consortium will be organized with 8 to 12 presentations by
the students, whose applications have been selected by the Student
Consortium chairs and potentially other reviewers. The strongest
candidates will be those who have a clear topic and research approach,
and have made some progress, but who are not so far along in their
research that they can no longer make changes. The final version of
accepted SC submissions will be included in the main conference
proceedings published in the ACM DL.
Complimentary/reduced conference registration will be available for
students. Student Consortium participants will also be given high
priority when applying for the student travel awards. Moreover, we are
working to provide partial reimbursement of travel/accommodation
expenses specifically for the participants of the Student Consortium.
More information will come soon.

The objectives of the student consortium are to:
1. Serve as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on
students' current doctoral and masters' research and guidance on
future research directions
2. Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work
from researchers and students outside of their own institution
3. Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a
spirit of collaborative research
4. Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
researchers and conference events
