  Call for Doctoral Student Consortia

ICCE 2011 Doctoral Student Consortia

November 28, 2011 (Monday) to December 2, 2011 (Friday)
Chiang Mai, Thailand

Organized by Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education

Hosted by National Electronics and Computer Technology Center, Thailand

     The Doctoral Student Consortia are held in conjunction with ICCE 2011 and is organized to bring together PhD students working in the areas of:
  • C1 : ICCE Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education/Intelligent Tutoring System (AIED/ITS) and Adaptive Learning
  • C2 : ICCE Conference on Computer-supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) and Learning Sciences
  • C3 : ICCE Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies, Open Contents, and Standards
  • C4 : ICCE Conference on Classroom, Ubiquitous, and Mobile Technologies Enhanced Learning (CUMTEL)
  • C5 : ICCE Conference on Game and Toy Enhanced Learning and Society (GTEL&S)
  • C6 : ICCE Conference on Technology, Pedagogy and Education
     The event aims to provide an opportunity for a selected number of PhD students to present, discuss and receive feedbacks on their dissertation work-in-progress from their peers and a panel of established researchers in the similar areas they are working. These consortia are meant for students to shape their research methodologies and analysis. As such, the student should not be too close to completing their research that the workshop would have little impact on their research work. Each accepted submission of the DSC will be published in the ICCE 2010 Doctoral Student Consortium proceedings.
  • Provide feedback on participants' current research approach and methodology;
  • Provide guidance on future research directions;
  • Provide theme-based forums for discussing methodological and theoretical issues of central importance to different DSC themes;
  • Nurture a supportive learning community by promoting interaction between young researchers from various institutions and across different countries in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Requirements and Submission Guidelines
    Proposals must relate to the themes of ICCE2011. Students who have completed their dissertation work, or are finalizing their dissertation are not eligible to apply.
