The doctoral consortium of the IVA 2014 conference 
(http://www.ccs.neu.edu/iva2014/) will be held on Tuesday, 26 August 
2014 at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.

IVA (Intelligent Virtual Agents) is the leading scientific forum for 
presenting research on intelligent virtual agents. The IVA doctoral 
consortium offers an opportunity for doctoral students to get feedback 
and guidance on their current research and future research directions 
from distinguished researchers outside their own institution.

The doctoral consortium day occurs the day before the start of the main 
conference. It will provide a supportive setting that allows the 
selected students to present and discuss their work with an audience of 
distinguished researchers as well as other students.

Each selected student will be matched with  an  established  researcher 
  in  the  community,  who will  act as  a /mentor/.  The mentor 
will interact closely with the student, to provide feedback and guidance 
on the student's research and career before and during the doctoral 
consortium day.

We invite students who would like to benefit from this guidance to 
apply. We encourage in particular candidates who have a clear topic and 
research approach, and have made some progress, but who can still 
benefit from feedback and guidance.

Based on the submissions, the organizing committee will select a group 
of students that will be invited to participate in the doctoral 
consortium day. The selected students will be expected to attend and 
present at the doctoral consortium.

Submissions consist of the following documents which students should 

1.A four-page extended abstract  of the student's thesis work (in the 
IVA  submission format)

2.A short (2-page) resume (Curriculum Vitae)

3.A recommendation letter from the advisor/supervisor.

The documents should be emailed to: Magalie Ochs 

The recommendation letter should address the expected benefit of 
the student attending, the significance of the research, and the 
beginning date of the thesis as well as the expected date for thesis
