About the ICCHP 2012 Young Researchers Consortium

We have divided our group into two main categories: those in the early stages of their research and those who are in more advanced stages. The early researchers will have 10 minutes to present with 20 minutes for discussion. Those in more advanced stages of their research will have 20 minutes to present and 20 minutes for discussion. 
We would like to ask each participant, at the end of their presentation and as the last slide, to describe one or two issues or problems which are causing concern with their research at the moment. Issues or problems can be anything from administrative issues such as figuring out your research timeline to personal/social issues preventing you from moving forward in your research. Detailed or specific technical issues should probably be avoided as we will be less able to formulate any solutions within the short time allocated to discussion. Our plan is to use these issues as starting points for small group discussions involving all the participants and Consortium Chairs. We anticipate there will be quite a bit of overlap with these issues - many problems you face are common ones! We hope that having the input of the whole group will be helpful for you in finding ways to address your particular issues.
If you have any questions about the Consortium please feel free to email Deborah Fels.

ICCHP is a series of biannual scientific conferences in the field of ICT/AT for people with disabilities run in co-operation with the Johannes Kepler University, Linz and the Austrian Computer Society
