IVA 2024 Doctoral Consortium

September 15, 2024. Glasgow, United Kingdom


The Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA) 2024 Doctoral Consortium occurs September 15, 2024, the day before the start of the main conference. We invite Ph.D. students working in the area of intelligent virtual agents to present their research to peers and a panel of distinguished researchers, who will provide students with valuable feedback, additional ideas, and suggestions regarding parallel ongoing work. We will also pair each attendee with an expert mentor to provide individualized feedback and guidance. The Doctoral Consortium will also introduce students to a network that can be very helpful with their career once they graduate. We particularly encourage applications from Ph.D. students who have made some progress on a clear topic and research approach, but are not too far advanced to benefit from feedback and guidance.

Based on student applications, the organizing committee will select a group of students that will be invited to participate. Attendees will present their work in three formats to give them practice addressing audiences in a couple of different venues:  A 20 minute oral presentation and a brief flash talk to go with a poster presentation.

Submissions consist of the following:

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) of the student.
3. A recommendation letter from the student’s advisor/supervisor.

The student should email the abstract and resume to the consortium chairs Laura Hensel and Hannes Högni Vilhjálmsson at <> by the submission deadline. Please note that reviews are not anonymous.

The student’s advisor/supervisor should directly email their letter of recommendation to the consortium chairs by the same deadline. The letter should address the expected benefit of the student attending, the significance of the research, and the anticipated graduation date of the student.
