Student work is often bold and exploratory in nature. The Student Research Consortium (SRC) track aims to showcase and discuss ongoing research on the topic of design intelligent systems by bringing in projects done by students at undergraduate or masters levels. This call specifically seeks to gather student research that builds from a wide variety of disciplines, including but not restricted to engineering, psychology, sociology, anthropology, architecture to performing arts. With this our aim is threefold.
A submission to SRC could be a thesis project, a class project, or an extracurricular activity, but the focus of this work should be research. The submission must present in-brief the state-of-art or related work, and discuss if and how your project contributes to the topic and issues concerning the theme.
You are eligible to submit an entry to SRC if you currently are an undergraduate or masters level student in any faculty (including design, engineering, architecture, social sciences, arts, commerce, management, etc.), or if you finished your education in the calendar year 2018-2019. A submission could be co-authored by 1-5 people. They need not be from the same educational institution, but all of the 5 people must be eligible to submit to the SRC. Faculty members or professionals who may have contributed as guides or supervisors should be acknowledged separately, and should NOT be listed as “authors” of the submission. The reviewing will be done by mentors. The best submissions will be showcased in a session during the conference.
“All submissions must be made via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=indiahci19”
A submission to the SRC should describe work in the topic areas covered by Human-Computer Interaction. Papers should describe:
Submissions are invited from all students at all stages of their university careers, from undergraduate to postgraduate studies.
We look forward to seeing your submissions!
Submissions must be made using the EasyChair system
Submissions can be made either as an extended abstract or as explained below.
Extended Abstract: Teams will submit an anonymized paper (6 pages maximum) written in the CHI Extended Abstracts Format (Download the right template from https://sigchi.org/templates/) summarizing their design solution and its evolution. Submissions not meeting the page limit or formatting requirements will be automatically disqualified. This document should be submitted as a single PDF and the file must be no larger than 10 Mb in size.
Video: Paper submissions may be accompanied by videos of any length up to a maximum of 5 minutes and less than 90 MB. The video needs to effectively communicate the research idea. Kindly submit your videos following this link https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1cXZa_ywnYJHV0zU2hY5MiYQFjJVJ_LV3
Proof of student status: All authors must submit notes signed by their academic supervisor/head of school to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of their paper as the subject line. Authors working in teams must send their student proofs as one zip file. The student proof is used to verify the following:
Your university: Whether you and your teams are graduates or undergraduate students.
Acceptable Submissions will be peer-reviewed by a panel of experts. The review process will be double-blind, that is the anonymity of authors and reviewers will be maintained. There will be three independent reviewers for each paper. In addition, a meta-review will be done by a program committee member.India HCI 2019 will include a shepherding process for papers which are conditionally accepted at the Program Committee meeting.
The authors of accepted submissions should register for the conference. Authors will be provided a specific time slot to present their work at the conference. The exact time-slot will be shared once the final program is published.
