IVA 2015 Doctoral Consortium, August 24th in Delft, The Netherlands

The Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA) 2015 Doctoral Consortium will be held on
Monday, the 24th of August, two days before the main IVA conference (26th of
August - 28th of August, 2015). We invite and encourage PhD students working in
the area of virtual agents to present and discuss their work. PhD students
working on human-human and human-robot interaction with a relevance to
intelligent virtual agents are also encouraged to apply.

The doctoral consortium offers PhD students the opportunity to discuss and
present their research plans and progress to peers and experts in an interactive
way. During the doctoral consortium, several distinguished researchers will
provide feedback and guidance on the students' current research and future
research directions. Students who would like to benefit from this feedback and
guidance are welcome to apply. Students who have a clear topic and have already
made some progress are especially encouraged to apply.

Based on the student's application, the organizing committee will select a group
of students that will be invited to participate. The students selected are
expected to attend and to give an oral presentation at the Doctoral Consortium.
Students will also be given the possibility to present a poster during the
poster session of the main conference.
