TEI2023 will host a Graduate Student Consortium aimed at junior researchers currently in postbaccalaureate degree programs (i.e. doctoral programs in research fields, and master’s programs in the arts) in an area relevant for the Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction community. Traditionally the TEI GSC is focused on meeting other TEI graduate students as well as more experienced TEI researchers to share experiences and sharpen the research.

GENERAL INFORMATION

TEI2023 will host a Graduate Student Consortium aimed at junior researchers currently in postbaccalaureate degree programs (i.e. doctoral programs in research fields, and master’s programs in the arts) in an area relevant for the Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction community. Traditionally the TEI GSC is focused on meeting other TEI graduate students as well as more experienced TEI researchers to share experiences and sharpen the research. The main event is a one-day session on Sunday, February 26 2023, during which TEI graduate students present their work to, and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced TEI researchers. During this Sunday program the key purpose is to have an informal and interactive discussion about each candidates’ ongoing research, with the intention to sharpen it. GSC applicants may be at various stages of their PhD research or graduate thesis, however they should have a clear understanding of their driving research question, their research approach including preliminary research design and methodology(s) as well as a goal for what they hope to gain by attending the GSC session.

GSC ACTIVITIES

The main GSC panel will be held on Sunday, February 26 2023. The day will start with a welcome and introduction by the GSC chairs. Then each student will have to present and participate in a group discussion about their work. The day will end with a general discussion and wrap-up.

The registration for the Graduate Consortium itself will be free of charge. At this moment there is no information yet about further potential funding for GSC-attendees, but it will be posted on this website as soon as we know more.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

  • General

Each applicant should provide a short written paper describing their ongoing research. The deadline for the paper is Thursday, October 13 2022.

The paper should clearly describe the research topic, covering the context and motivation, objectives, and central research questions. Also we require a concise background description and literature review framing the research, a description and rationale of the approach to research design and methodology, and an overview of data collection and analysis methods. If possible and suitable, please also include description of pilot, preliminary or selected results framed in the context of research questions. Finally, the paper should provide a brief timeline that gives insight into the activities done so far as well as in activities planned for the remainder of the PhD research. Please mention the amount of time left.

The selection of GSC participants will be made by the GSC chairs. Accepted GSC papers will be published in the TEI Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
