Call for Interdisciplinary PhD Symposium
Submission Deadline: May 3, 2019
One of the WebSci’19 events on Sunday 30 June 2019 will be the Interdisciplinary PhD Symposium, offering PhD and research master students the opportunity to present and discuss their research plans and ongoing research for an interdisciplinary audience. We aim for a lively and engaged discussion maximising early-stage ideas exchange and interdisciplinary discussion on emerging or novel ideas/research.
To achieve this we are seeking 1-2 page PhD research descriptions that will be reviewed by the PhD Symposium chairs. Accepted submissions will be presented in (about) 20 minute slots during the PhD Symposium on Sunday June 30th. In addition, accepted students will be invited to present their work as a poster during the plenary poster reception of the main conference on Monday July 1st.
The Web Science conference welcomes participation from all disciplines including, but not limited to, art, computer and information sciences, communication, economics, humanities, informatics, law, linguistics, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology, in pursuit of an understanding of the Web. This conference is unique in bringing these disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue. We particularly welcome contributions that seek to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. Possible topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Submissions should be up to 2 pages, ACM double column format. Accepted submissions will be made available in a separate open access WebSci’19 Events Proceedings that will accompany the main conference proceedings. You can submit your contribution via the WebSci’19 submission page at Easychair.
