** Overview **
The aim of the IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition
Doctoral Consortium (FG 2015 DC) is to provide a forum for Ph.D. students to discuss their
research and career objectives with other students and senior researchers working in
relevant fields, and get effective and timely feedback from the international research
community. FG15 Doctoral Consortium also aims to:

- provide a networking environment that will enable the doctoral students establish new
contacts and collaborations with other international junior and senior researchers;
- equip the new generation of bright researchers with career options and inform them
about the possibilities in academia and industry.

The Doctoral Consortium will be a half-day event, and will start with a catered lunch
combined with an informal introduction by the senior researchers followed by Q&A and
discussions with attendees. Attendance will be by invitation only.
There will be three oral sessions following the lunch. During each session, the accepted
student participants will present their research work and will receive feedback from the
invited committee. The committee members will discuss the work with the student and provide
constructive comments and guidance on his/her research. The students will also present their
work during a poster session in the main conference, receiving feedback from the rest of the
community. Student participants accepted in the Doctoral Consortium are eligible for
consideration for some level of financial support on their travel.

** Eligibility **
We encourage submissions from Ph.D. students who are already working on their dissertations
with some results already published or close to publication. Preference will be given to
students who are far enough along to have formulated their dissertation topics. We encourage
diversity and equality, both in terms of research topics as well as participating institutions
and individuals. We do not expect more than two students to be invited from each institution
to represent a diverse sample. Women are especially encouraged to apply. It is not necessary
to have a paper appearing in FG 2015 in order to apply to participate.

** Submission **
Each student is expected to submit:
- A research statement to summarize the research topic, the working plan, and the progress to
date. (Max 2 pages)
- A CV. (Max 1 page)
- Title and abstract of paper accepted by FG 2015 or the workshops in conjunction with FG 2015,
if applicable. This is not a mandatory material for application.
- Applicants who did not submit a paper to FG 2015 or the workshops in conjunction with FG 2015
should submit an extended abstract (Max 4 pages) following the FG 2015 paper format. It should
describe original work that is part of the doctoral work of the student applicant. We encourage
the submission of work that is still in progress.
- A supporting letter from the thesis advisor that endorses the student?s application to this
Doctoral Consortium and briefly describes the progress or status of the student?s thesis work.
- All materials should be prepared in PDF format and submitted through the FG submission
systemhttps://cmt.research.microsoft.com/FG2015  in the "Doctoral Consortium track".

** Selection and Review Process **
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by both senior and junior TPC members. Paper topics should
be related to the conference topics, which are given in the general call for papers

   1.  Submissions will be evaluated by the following factors:
       - Quality of the submission
       - Expected benefits of the consortium for the student?s PhD research
       - Student's contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds, methodology, etc.
       - All authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend the Doctoral Consortium and
     the main conference poster session.

   2.  The accepted papers will be included in conference proceedings.

Successful applicants are expected to actively participate in the whole program.
