Diagrams is the only conference series that provides a united forum for all areas that are concerned with the study of diagrams and has a multidisciplinary emphasis.
The goal of the Diagrams 2021 Graduate Symposium is twofold. Firstly, the Symposium will provide senior graduate students and recent Masters and Doctoral graduates with the opportunity to present their research. Established researchers will provide feedback and comments on each of the presentations. Secondly, the Symposium will provide students with an opportunity to network with each other as future colleagues.
In previous Diagrams Graduate Symposiums, lively and useful discussions have enabled students to receive suggestions about their on-going research and allowed more experienced participants to hear some fresh ideas and view some of the new trends in the field.
The Graduate Symposium will include an Inspirational Early Career Researcher Invited Talk<http://www.diagrams-conference.org/2021/index.php/keynotes/>. The invitation to deliver this talk is reserved for an active Diagrams researcher, within approximately ten years of their PhD, who has demonstrable potential to be a major leadership force within the community. The Inspirational ECR talk will be open to the entire Diagrams delegation.
Submission Requirements

Submissions that focus on any aspect of diagrams research are welcome. Topics of interest are the same as those given in the calls for papers for the three conference tracks:
http://www.diagrams-conference.org/2021/index.php/calls/philosophy/ http://www.diagrams-conference.org/2021/index.php/calls/psychology-of-diagrams/.

Students who wish to present their work at the symposium must submit a 3-page report describing

– their thesis topic,
– the approach being taken,
– the work that has been completed,
– the expected contributions of the research
– any necessary acknowledgements (for example, supervision team and source funding).

The student should be the sole author of their submission and the supervisor names should be included in the acknowledgements section.

The report must be submitted in Springer LNCS format.

Authors of accepted submissions will be expected to be in attendance at the virtual conference to present their research and respond to questions presented by delegates. All presenters must accept that it is not within the power of the organisers to prevent delegates from recording  talks. However, when registering, delegates will be asked to confirm that they will not record any part of the conference.
More details can be found at
Supervisor Support
Students who submit to the graduate symposium must ask their main or lead supervisor to submit a short supporting statement, by email to Mohanad Alqadah, msqadah ‘@’ uqu.edu.sa.
The supporting statement should confirm that the supervisor supports the student’s participation in the symposium and briefly explain why the student will benefit.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their supervisor submits the supporting statement.
