International Conference on Computing Education Research
The Koli 2019 Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides an opportunity for doctoral students studying computing education concerns to explore and develop their research interests under the supervision of experienced researchers with a strong background in Computer Science Education Research. Over the two days, you will have the opportunity to discuss your work with a range of mentors, testing your ideas and presenting your current progress, while enjoying the warm collegiality of the Koli community.
We invite students to apply for this opportunity to share their work with their peers, the organizers, and mentors. Doctoral students at any stage of their program can apply as long as they will not have graduated before the event. The focus is on educational research in CS and its related disciplines, thus areas such as education in cybersecurity are also welcome to apply. The Koli DC only runs every two years so apply for this year or you’ll have to wait until 2021!
Koli is a slightly smaller conference than other venues but we can offer a range of support to students who have financial need. Students are expected to pay the conference registration fee (half price) of EUR 130 which will cover their attendance at both DC and Koli. However, accommodation fees are separate to this for the main conference and are EUR 368 (twin share). Accomodation fees in Helsinki for the DC will be advertised shortly.
On application, we can offer up to EUR 1,000 in travel support to a student travelling in from outside of Europe who would otherwise not be able to attend. Should we have two students whose total requirement is EUR 1,000 or less, we can consider awarding both.
We also have two accommodation scholarships (for all accommodation, both DC and Conference) which we will allocate based on need. However, students who have also submitted a paper for Koli will be considered for the accommodation scholarship, should no other award be made.
To apply for support, please provide a support letter as detailed below.
Once you have assembled your PDF, go to the Koli 2019 EasyChair site and submit the file, being sure to choose the Doctoral consortium submission category. If your advisor would like to send their letter of recommendation separately, they can send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submissions will be confidential. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity.
Authors of accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to submit publication-ready copy of their 2-page abstract. Please note that submissions will not be published without a signed form releasing publishing copyright to the ACM. Obtaining permissions to use video, audio, or pictures of identifiable people or proprietary content rests with the author.
The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date will be one week prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. Preparing your poster.
During the DC, you’ll be presenting your work in many settings, including a poster to the main conference and describing your research in conversation. To support this, prepare and bring the following forms of visual aids:
All participants are expected to attend all portions of the Doctoral Consortium and students will also present a poster of their work at the main conference. The total time commitment is from the 19th to the 24th of November.
