This one day workshop will help new PHDs develop their careers in HCI through intensive interaction with senior mentors from academia and industry who have been successful in research and professional service. The workshop is open to all members of the HCI community who have received their PHDs in the past five years.
The workshop will be modeled after the CHI Doctoral Consortia. Each participant will be given 30-45 minutes to present and get feedback on his/her research and professional activities. We will also hold a series of panels in which senior researchers discuss (a) developing a career trajectory, (b) getting started in professional service, and (c) issues of work/life balance. Topics will include:
