The goal of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a setting in which PhD students can present and receive feedback on their work. Students at different stages of their research will be able to articulate and discuss their problem statement, goals, methods, and results. The Doctoral Consortium also aims to provide students with useful guidance on various aspects of their research from established researchers and the other student attendees. Finally, the Doctoral Consortium seeks to motivate students in the development of their scientific curiosity and facilitate their networking within the research community.
The topics of the Doctoral Consortium are the same as CHItaly’s. The main scope of the consortium is to enable PhD students to interact with their peers, as well as with more senior researchers, on a wide range of Human-Computer Interaction related topics, and related to the conference theme.
The consortium is open to PhD students worldwide at any stage in their research. Students at an initial stage should be able to challenge their ideas and current research directions. Students at a more mature stage should be able to present their thesis and get advice on ways to further improve and better communicate their contributions and findings. Participation is particularly encouraged from PhD students who are close to proposing a thesis.

Submitted papers must be in English and single-author, but the name of the supervisor could be mentioned within the paper. Papers must be 5-page long using the 1-column CEUR template available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip.

- identify a significant problem in the field of research
- outline the current status of the problem domain and related solutions
- describe the contribution of the student by presenting the proposed approach and the results achieved so far
Accepted papers will be collected and published in CEUR-WS proceedings.
Each author of an accepted paper will present orally his/her contribution the first day of the conference.
