Call For Papers

W1. Doctoral Workshop

This iLRN 2019 Doctoral Workshop provides a platform for doctoral students undertaking research on various aspects of immersive learning, innovation in technology (Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality spectrum) to assist education and emerging theoretical models to assist technology driven forms of education. The workshop offers doctoral students an opportunity to:
◾share and develop their research ideas in a supportive environment;
◾obtain feedback from mentors who are senior academics and established researchers;
◾explore issues related to academic and research careers; and
◾build relationships within the broader academic community from around the world.

The Doctoral Workshop integrates the “publication retreat” which offers doctoral students the opportunity to meet reviewers and journal editors and gain mentorship on devising the most effective strategy for writing and submitting papers to top journal titles.

Call for PhD research proposals
The Doctoral Workshop invites all interested doctoral candidates to submit their research proposals for review and feedback. The research proposals should be a maximum length of 4 A4 sized-pages and should typically include the following structure:
◾Problem statement/definition
◾Brief literature review
◾Conceptual development
◾Proposed methodology
◾Outcome/Anticipated results

Proposals can be submitted for presentation in either oral or poster format. 20 minutes will be allocated to oral presentations (15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for Q&A and feedback). Poster presentations will be available throughout the day for comments and feedback. Please state in your proposal which format you would like to present in.

Each submission will undergo a peer-review process. The review criteria will include: relevance of the topic to iLRN; clarity of research objectives; review of relevant literature; clarity of research methods; stage of research.

The stage of research is important. It should not be a draft/initial idea or a project that is about to be completed. It should be a proposal you have worked on for some time and you are looking for feedback.

Students will be notified about the review outcome, along with recommendations on how to improve the proposal (if applicable) before the workshop.

Submission & publication
All submissions should be in English via iLRN’s 2019 EasyChair submission system as a single PDF file.

Accepted presentations at the Doctoral Workshop will be included in the iLRN 2019 online proceedings.

The workshop is free to registered attendees of iLRN 2019 conference.

To encourage students to attend other sessions and to connect with the immersive learning community students registered to the iLRN 2019 Doctoral Workshop will get a reduced fee. For more information look at the conference registration.
