Doctoral Consortium Submissions
The Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with a panel of established researchers in computing. Ph.D. students who have decided on their thesis research topics and have produced (either preliminary or substantial) thesis research results are eligible to submit. The typical proposer, therefore, is in the mid or late stages of their Ph.D. program. Doctoral Consortium proposals must include the following:
● Years enrolled in your doctoral program and thesis summary;
● Thesis abstract (up to 300 words);
● CV (up to 2 pages);
● Contact information for the thesis advisor; and
● Statement of expectations (up to 250 words, stating what you expect to gain from presenting and participating in the Doctoral Consortium as well as what you think you can contribute)
The thesis summary must conform to the Tapia Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 4 pages for all text, figures, and references in PDF format.
Domestic students selected to participate in the Doctoral Consortium will receive a scholarship that includes full conference registration, a reimbursable travel stipend and hotel accommodations.
Please note: Travel Scholarships are only awarded to accepted presenters studying at colleges/universities in the U.S. and U.S. Territories. Accepted Doctoral Consortium presenters at international universities are responsible for providing their own travel, hotel and registration to attend the conference.
You MUST submit your application for a Tapia scholarship by March 11 at 11:59 pm PT. If you DO NOT submit an application for a Tapia Scholarship and you are accepted into the Doctoral Consortium, you will be responsible for covering your conference registration, travel and hotel accommodations. Tapia Scholarship Applications open February 11.
Submission deadline is Monday, March 11 at 11:59 pm PT
For questions regarding submissions please contact the Program Committee.
