Student Research Consortium

Print Page

People often do some of their best work as students. Current students are not only future researchers and practitioners, they are also fresh thinkers and generators of innovative ideas. Students often work on hard problems and pressing needs and propose bold solutions.

The Student Research Consortium (SRC) track will celebrate the best and bold research projects done by students at undergraduate or masters levels. We call for submissions of original work from current and recent students.

The list of accepted SRC submissions is now available online

View Accepted Proposals

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. Your submission must present in-brief the state-of-art or related work, and discuss if and how your project contributes to the same.

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, arts, commerce, management etc.), or if you finished your education in the calendar year 2017.

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.

Submission Details

A submission to the SRC should in 2-4 pages describe work in any of the topic areas covered by Human-Computer Interaction. Papers should describe:

  • The research problem and motivation for the research
  • Background and related work (within the scope of the paper)
  • Research approach
  • Novelty of the design/research
  • Results
  • Contributions to the field, these could be in the form of findings and insights, and or a novel design concept / system, etc.

The paper submission will be judged on the novelty of the idea with respect to current related state-of-art, writing quality and how well the design/research is presented. 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.

Papers should be formatted according to Springer LNCS Format. The submissions will be published in official adjunct conference proceedings during the conference.

All submissions must be made using the conference submission system (PCS)
