The doctoral colloquium is a full-day session intended for PhD students working within the field of Participatory Design (PD). It will provide students with an opportunity to discuss issues of concern to them in their studies and receive extensive feedback from the DC co-chairs, along with a core group of senior participatory design researchers, and other student participants. Enrollment is limited and selection will be based on the quality of application submissions, taking into account how the research is related to PD. The aim will be to include a range of students with different disciplinary emphases, at different stages of their research programs, and coming from different cultural backgrounds. The proposal should give an overview of the PhD project, including research motivations and questions, intended contributions, methods, status of current work, major findings and plans for further research. Accepted applicants will be asked to do some pre-conference preparation, including reading each other’s submissions and articulate common themes, among others. More directions will be provided.
