EC-TEL Doctoral Consortium Open Call with two Deadlines

I am honored to chair the EC-TEL Doctoral Consortium for the second time. Like every year, the Doctoral Consortium offers Ph.D. candidates a unique opportunity to present their research, receive rich feedback from senior members of the community, and build their networks. Yet, this year things will be slightly different: Firstly, because we link the Doctoral Consortium to the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) and the World Conference on Mobile and Contextual Learning (mLearn), which are both co-located at the LDE-Centre for Education and Learning in Delft, the Netherlands. Secondly, we decided to offer two tracks: the challenge track addresses advanced PhD students that seek to be challenged regarding their state of research, and the ideas track allows early stage PhD students to get early feedback on their research ideas.

The challenge track requires requires PhD candidates to have initial published results and first experiements completed. These results should be presented in a six-page overview paper.

The ideas track requires PhD candidates to have completed some initial literature research on their research idea. The candidates should be able to justify their ideas in a three-page position paper.

If you intent to submit to the EC-TEL Doctoral Consortium, be aware that there are two deadlines:

  • Challenge track deadline: 13 May 2019
  • Ideas track deadline: 17 June 2019

We also expect all submissions to include a very short confirmation form, signed by their supervisor/professor. It might be wise to talk early with your supervisor or professor if you plan a submission.

Get all the details for the submissions on the EC-TEL homepage.

As a participant of the EC-TEL Doctoral Consortium, you have also the opportunity to present your work as a poster at the EC-TEL poster session. This allows you to gather even more feedback and have an easy way to discuss with other community members.

After the conference, you have the opportunity to revise your submission and include the feedback from the reviews and the conference. All revised papers will be published as Open Access on the CEUR-WS platform.

If you plan to submit to the ideas track, I strongly suggest that you join my workshop at the EATEL Summer School in Bari. Claim your place until 22 February 2019!
