SoCS (Social-Computational Systems) Workshops

June 9–11, 2011

Walter Library


Students participating in the doctoral symposium will present their research in two formats during the workshop. First, please prepare to make a 15-minute presentation of your research at the symposium itself on Thursday. This will be in smaller break-out groups (approximately 12 people) — we will have projection available. Your presentation should focus on areas where you hope to receive useful feedback, and should address the research questions, progress, and plans for your dissertation research. Each student will also be assigned to take notes for another student during the session (so you can focus entirely on interacting with the group). Please note: Early stage students will not be required to present, unless they desire to. Second, you will present a poster describing your work at the Workshop poster session on Friday evening. This poster — a copy of which will be provided as part of the conference handouts to all participants — should highlight the research challenges you are addressing, your progress, and your research plans.
