Persuasive 2010 offers a doctoral consortium for PhD students working with projects within the field of persuasive technology and design or related areas.

The doctoral consortium will take place from June 5 to June 6, 2010 in Copenhagen.

The doctoral consortium is organized jointly by Aalborg University and The Royal School of Library and Information Science, both Denmark. The doctoral consortium is chaired by Associated professor Marianne Lykke, RSLIS and Professor Robert Biddle, Carleton University, Canada. The consortium program consists of a combination of lectures by invited senior researchers, workshops and student presentation.

Students selected for the doctoral consortium are expected to cover their travel costs and pay a nominal participation fee (800 DKK).

All meals (incl. coffees, lunches, and dinners) during the event in Copenhagen are covered by our sponsors. This includes a bike trip and dinner in the vivacious, historical part of Copenhagen city. Although we will try to get sponsors for the accommodation too, please note that until further notice, accommodation is to be covered by students themselves. Please find information about conference hotels here

PhD students who would like to participate should submit their applications through the submission system at https://www.softconf.com/a/persuasive2010dc no later than 22. March 2010. Each application should include a short description of the student’s PhD project (no more that 3000 words). The description should follow the classical structure for a research paper: research questions, motivation and related research, and methodology. Students preparing a PhD project within the field of persuasive design are also welcome to apply.

A maximum of 30 students will be selected for the doctoral consortium. Notification will be sent by e-mail by 15. April 2010
