Global Fellowship

This year, in MobileHCI’20, as a part of “Diversity and Inclusion” program, we aim to broaden the international horizons of our community. In particular, we want to strengthen the ties with members from continents that so far had fewer participation at the conference. To this end, we award 10 fellowships to PhD students from these continents.

Recipients of the award get the following:

  • Free registration to the conference;
  • Free registration at one of workshops at the conference;
  • The opportunity to meet senior members of the MobileHCI community, such as chairs of this year’s conference.
