Symposium aim: A new feature of the Third International Conference on Design Computing and Cognition is the Doctoral Student Symposium. The goal of this symposium is to bring together doctoral students in an international forum for presentation and discussion of their research in an interactive and comfortable environment. Students will present and discuss their research that may be in formative stages. Senior researchers at the symposium will strive to provide constructive feedback to help the students complete their dissertation and initiate a research career.
