Building on the success of the previous four conferences,the Symposium on Communicating Complex Information (SCCI) explores how complex information changes how we communicate, and how those changes affect information design, information architecture, user experience, and usability.  It seeks to examine how  design and content choices influence behavior as people interact with complex
information and how we can best design complex information systems. SCCI fosters an integrated approach to the design of complex information by bringing together members from a range of research and practitioner communities.

CFP: A Paper Is More than Great Results (Grad Conf)

Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is delighted to host the 2015 U21 Health Sciences Doctoral Forum which will focus on the theme: ‘A paper is more than great results’.

We would like to invite doctoral students in health sciences disciplines, who are advanced in their studies, to present their work at the forum. We are initially limiting student applications to one in each U21 institution; however, depending on demand, we will consider increasing the number of students in particular institutions.

Students’ presentations will be 10 minutes maximum, followed by 5 minutes for questions and 5 minutes for feedback from an international review panel. Students will not be expected to give an overview of their whole project but rather to highlight some of the issues they have encountered to get published and how they have resolved the issues. The main aim of this forum is to discuss the publication of manuscripts with a particular emphasis on the three following points:

  • Relevance of generating a manuscript
  • Challenges encountered to get published
  • How to choose a journal

Participating students will also have the opportunity to present a poster presenting their research that will be displayed in the coffee break and lunch area during the day of the forum.

Interested students should submit their abstract before 26 June 2015. An abstract submission form and a preliminary program for the event are available on the U21 HSG website.

Submissions of abstracts and any queries related to the 2015 Health Sciences Doctoral Forum should be directed to Dr Andrea Leiva.

Please circulate this communication to the relevant departments in your institutions and do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.
