Call for Doctoral Consortium Nominations
Nominations are invited for the Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS) 2019 Doctoral Consortium. The Consortium provides a unique opportunity for doctoral students in Information Systems to present their research to an audience of peers and senior faculty.
The Consortium focuses on providing constructive feedback to students on their research and provides students with an opportunity to:
- present their work in a supportive and constructive environment
- receive feedback and suggestions from peers and experienced faculty
- gain an overview of the breadth, depth, and directions of IS research
- discuss concerns about research, supervision, and other career-related issues
- network with peers, future colleagues and IS faculty
The Consortium is limited to 24 students. Candidates must be current doctoral students from a recognized university. Each IS department/school can nominate a maximum of 2 candidates and must rank their applications.
Ideally, the candidate should have chosen their theoretical approach, developed their methodology, and started their empirical work, but should at the time of the Consortium have at least 6-12 months of work remaining before expected completion.
