FDG 2015 invites PhD students to apply to the Doctoral Consortium, a unique opportunity to present their work and receive feedback from fellow students and senior faculty in game research. The consortium will primarily benefit PhD students who are pursuing a career in academia and already have a clear topic and research approach, but are not so far along in their PhD that they can no longer make changes.


Invited students are expected to attend both conference and consortium, which will take place in parallel to one conference day. At the consortium, invited students will give a 15 minute presentation on their work and receive detailed feedback from their peers and the consortium committee. They will also have opportunity to ask senior faculty about job market and publication strategies during two bespoke panels. Accepted doctoral consortium abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings, and students are invited to present a poster on their abstracts during the general conference poster session.
