The Doctoral Consortium is a full day pre-conference session of NordiCHI 2018. Here, PhD students can present and discuss their research with other students and with experts within the field. The purpose is for the students to get feedback on their thesis work so far, get advice about future developments, and share ideas and experiences with students in related areas.
The consortium takes the form of a workshop where established HCI scholars take active part as discussants. The purpose is for students to receive constructive feedback on their thesis work so far, get advice about future developments, and share ideas and experiences with students in related areas.
Participants have advanced beyond the introductory stage in their thesis work, and are actively engaged in the exploration of an HCI topic. The research areas covered by the Doctoral Consortium are the same as the NordiCHI conference generally. Students come from different academic subjects or disciplines, such as interaction design, computer science, cognitive science, and sociology.
Nine students have been accepted to the Doctoral Consortium. You can read more on the Doctoral consortium web page.
The consortium organizers are Dag Svanæs (NTNU, Norway), Susanne Bødker (Aarhus University, Denmark), Asbjørn Følstad (SINTEF, Norway).
