****************************************************************************************************************************************************************** 
DECEMBER 6TH 2007

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Building upon the successful organisation and running of 9 previous
workshop events which focused on giving postgraduate students the
opportunity to discuss their research goals as well as critically review
and provide feedback on each others work, we feel its now time to
shake things up and start looking at ways that we might support each
other in learning about and practicing the additional skills necessary
to complete a PhD. We invite you to help us CELEBRATE the 10th birthday
of the Human-Centred Technology Postgraduate Workshop by taking part in
an innovative, fresh and exciting day focusing on the PhD PROCESS.

This years workshop, based in Brighton, will be a chance to not only
get to know other postgraduate researchers in the HCT field and present
your work to the attendees through a digital poster session, but also an
opportunity to actively focus on crucial progress specific skills which
may help you complete your own research. The workshop will also provide
the opportunity to discuss and work through research problems with other
postgraduate students as well as with more experienced researchers.

The workshop will take place in the InQbate Sussex Creativity Zone
(http://www.inqbate.co.uk), a technology-rich environment which supports
collaborative and group work through its innovative, highly flexible,
design.

Due to the interactive and collaborative nature of this workshop, SPACES
ARE LIMITED, so get in early to make sure youve got a spot!


APPLICATION FOR PARTICIPATION

To apply simply:

1. Send in a 400 word abstract outlining your current research
2. Some aspects of the workshop will be year specific, therefore please
indicate whether you would like to take part in activities intended to
support the work conducted in the first year (idea generating, knowing
whats expected of you), second year (research methods, ethics
