MENTORING PROGRAM
Chair: John C. Thomas, IBM Research

Mentor support request should be made no later than: October 15th, 2006.

The Creativity & Cognition 2007 conference seeks contributions from diverse fields, bridging science, engineering, arts, humanities and more.  We are eager to present novel work that enables more people to be more creative more of the time. If you believe you have a contribution but are unfamiliar with ACM or ACM SIGCHI conferences, you may wish to request a mentor to help with your submission.   A mentor is a person who will help you with your submission to the Creativity & Cognition 2007 conference through one-on-one advising, usually via e-mail. A mentor will also familiarize you with the standards of CHI submissions. Mentors are volunteers familiar with submissions in the various participation categories.

Mentors may be available for Demonstrations, Papers, Posters, or Workshops. If you wish to ask for a mentor, we strongly encourage you to contact me as soon as possible. A mentor's feedback will be most useful to you if it is early enough to influence the way you focus your work, not just the way you write it up for the conference. Reasonable expectations for a mentor might include giving advice as to the most appropriate category for your work, suggesting improvements to your submission, suggesting how to deal with language problems or referring you to relevant research of which you might not have been aware. Typically, a mentor might spend 3-7 hours on a submission. I try to carefully match mentors to those they mentor, and wish to support you in getting your work focused into a high quality submission with a good chance of being accepted.

To request a mentor, please send email to John C. Thomas, jcthomas@us.ibm.com with the words: “CC2007 Mentoring Request” in the subject field. Please include a 100-200 word description of your work, an indication of which participation category you are interested in and any questions for which you would like help. Please see individual venue pages on this web site for further help on ways to describe your work and specific deadlines.
