The Research Network at SIGDOC 2016 will host roundtable discussions allowing conference participants a chance to share their research ideas or research-in-progress in a supportive setting with colleagues from academia and industry who share their similar interests. The network will take place on the morning of September 23, 2016 at the Sheraton Hotel in Silver Springs, MD (this is the conference hotel). We invite proposals to discuss research at any stage of completion—from conceptualization to publication—and the network is open to all registered conference participants.
The research network can help scholars plan their next research project, provide insight on methods and strategies, work through stalled projects, envision avenues for publication, and network with other researchers in the interdisciplinary fields that comprise communication design.
To participate, please submit a 100-200 word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 6, 2016. Please include with your abstract a title and areas of study/interest to assist with effective roundtable grouping at the conference.
If you are interested in serving as a roundtable leader, please indicate your interest in your emailed proposal. Participants will be grouped into discussion roundtables just prior to the network session in September.
