The Digital Media Doctoral Symposium (DMDS) provides an opportunity for the Digital Media Ph.D. students from the University of Porto and Universidade NOVA de Lisboa to present and discuss their ongoing Ph.D. research work (e.g., research goals, preliminary ideas, research plan, initial/intermediate results), with experts in the field and peers. Students will receive feedback on the quality of their presentation and on the proposed research itself.

Below you find the key dates:

  • Extended abstract submission deadline: March 15th, 2021
  • Notification of acceptance: March 19th, 2021
  • Symposium: March 26th, 2021

Accepted submissions will be presented at the DMDS (10 minutes presentation + 5/10 minutes to comments and questions).
