About the Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium at the DIS 2012 Conference will bring together 15 PhD students researching interaction design for two days of presentations and interactions with the organizers.

Because the students are selected chiefly on grounds of research excellence, their research represents the state-of-the-art in research on designing interactive systems. The Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity both for these projects to be shaped and improved through intellectual exchange as well as for the students to present and communicate the character of their work to a key group of their peer professionals. The DIS 2012 Doctoral Consortium brings together the best of the next generation of researchers in the design of interactive systems. This allows them to create a social network both among themselves and with several senior researchers, which plays a major role in their enculturation into the profession. This is particularly critical for PhD students in the DIS area, which is highly interdisciplinary.
