The goal of the ICMI Doctoral Consortium is to provide PhD students with an opportunity to present their work to a group of mentors and peers from a diverse set of academic and industrial institutions, to receive feedback on their doctoral research plan and progress, and to build a cohort of young researchers interested in designing multimodal interfaces. We invite students from all PhD granting institutions who are in the process of forming or carrying out a plan for their PhD research in the area of designing multimodal interfaces. The Consortium will be held on October 22, 2012. We expect to provide travel support to most attendees that will cover the majority of their travel costs.

Travel Support

We expect to be providing most student attendees with travel support that will cover the majority of the costs of traveling to and attending the Doctoral Consortium and the conference. However, the details on the number of students to be funded and funding coverage is currently unknown, as we are currently working on raising funds. More detail on travel support will be announced here soon.


All authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend the Doctoral Consortium and the main conference poster session. The attendees will present their PhD work as a short talk at the Consortium and as a poster at the conference poster session. A detailed program for the Consortium and the participation guidelines for the poster session will be available after the camera-ready deadline.
