        18th CRIWG Conference on Collaboration and Technology
                         Doctoral Consortium 
                        September 16th, 2012
                          Duisburg, Germany

                Submission deadline: July 8th, 2012


The CRIWG Doctoral Consortium aims at bringing together PhD students working on groupware and give them the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. The goals of the Doctoral Consortium event are:
- To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the selected Ph.D. students on their research thesis.
- To interact with other PhD students and stimulate an exchange of ideas and suggestions among participants.

To help achieving this goal the doctoral consortium will be moderated by experienced researchers from the field. For the CRIWG 2012 Doctoral Consortium these are:
- Daniel Suthers, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, USA
- Ralf Klamma, RWTH Aachen, Germany
- Josť A. Pino, Universidad de Chile, Chile

In the morning, the consortium PhD researchers will present and discuss their dissertation research progress. After lunch, consortium participants will receive feedback and suggestions regarding their research in face-to-face meetings with selected faculty members. Participating faculty will engage in discussions on academic research in GDN and the academic community in general.
