Doctoral Colloquium

Call for participation

The NordiCHI 2020 doctoral colloquium is a full day session taking place on Sunday, 25th October 2020. It is intended for doctoral students working in the broad field of Human-Computer Interaction.

The doctoral colloquium is an opportunity to present issues of concern relating to doctoral studies, meet fellow doctoral students, and get extensive feedback from the chairs and other participants. It is primarily intended for students in the middle of their studies (you have started your study and already done some work, but it is not too late to make changes based on feedback).

We especially welcome submissions that address trends within HCI in the perspective of the conference theme: shaping experiences, shaping society.
