Doctoral Symposium

The ITS Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced Tabletop researchers in an informal and interactive setting. We will give preference to applicants beyond the proposal stage and well into their dissertation research. Each applicant should provide a short written paper (no more than four pages in normal ACM format). This paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the student's full dissertation work, or highlight a particular part in depth. In addition, each student is asked to present a poster describing his or her work to the full conference. Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in the ITS conference companion distributed at the conference. Doctoral Symposium will take place at the conference venue on Sunday, November 13th 2011 (for accepted authors only!).
