The ICHI 2018 Doctoral Consortium invites doctoral students to submit abstracts on solving problems in healthcare, public health, and everyday wellness through the application of computer science, information science, information technology, and communication technology.
The Doctoral Consortium offers an outstanding opportunity for doctoral students working on health informatics problems to discuss their work in progress and receive feedback and guidance from Consortium mentors.
The Doctoral Consortium strongly encourages students from under-represented groups to participate, such as female and minority students.
All doctoral students whose extended abstract is accepted will be scheduled for a rapid-fire talk where each participant has 5 minutes, with auto-advancing slides, to present a synopsis of their work. These rapid overviews will be followed by a poster session where participants and mentors can discuss research in greater detail. Selected participants may also be invited to give a longer oral presentation. The Doctoral Consortium will close with a panel or round-table discussion on topics relevant to doctoral students, such as dissertation development, job searching, or grant seeking.
Depending on availability of funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the top 10 successful doctoral students to be accepted for the Doctoral Consortium will receive a travel award to participate in the Conference.
