Doctoral Colloquium

The doctoral colloquium is a full-day session intended for PhD students working within the field of Participatory Design. It will provide students with an opportunity to discuss issues of concern to them in their studies and receive extensive feedback from the session co-chairs and other student participants. Participants are selected based on the quality of application submissions and how the research is related to PD. The PDC 2016 doctoral colloquium includes an exciting spread of students with different disciplinary emphasis, at different stages of study, and coming from different cultural backgrounds.
