Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium is scheduled prior to the main conference programme, on Monday 26 June 2017, from 1 to 5 pm. The Doctoral Consortium (DC) offers research students a special forum where they can present, discuss and progress their research plans with peers and established senior researchers.

We especially welcome contributions which are related to the overall C&T conference theme, which is devoted to technology that can be deployed for the common good. This encompasses questions and approaches which are concerned with securing healthy and diverse ways of societal development. However, all contributions falling in the scope of the C&T conference are welcome.

Research students wishing to attend the doctoral consortium should submit up to 4 pages, using the SigConf proceedings template (ACM templates), addressing the following:

  • Introduction setting up your research area and specific research question(s)/goals(s) (including key related work);
  • Overall research approach, methodology, and expected contributions;
  • Work in progress (including findings to date and next steps);
  • Questions and issues for discussion, and what you hope to gain from attending the DC;
  • Short bio.

Please send proposals to the Doctoral Consortium Chairs:

Yvonne Dittrich, IT University of Copenhagen
Claudia Müller, University of Siegen
Volkmar Pipek, University of Siegen

Deadline: May, 2, 2017 **extended to:** June 2, 2017
