 Message from the Doctoral Consortium Chairs

The SocialCom 2012 Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for Doctoral
students to explore and develop their research interests in an
interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished
researchers. We invite students who feel they would benefit from this kind
of feedback on their dissertation work to apply for this unique opportunity
to share their work with students in a similar situation as well as senior
researchers in the field. The strongest candidates will be those who have a
clear topic and research approach, and have made some progress, but who are
not so far along that they can no longer make changes. In addition to
stating how you will gain from participation, both you and your advisor
should be clear on what you can contribute to the Doctoral Consortium.

  What is the Doctoral Consortium?
The Consortium has the following objectives:

Provide a supportive setting for feedback on students' current research and
guidance on future research directions.
Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from
researchers and students outside their own institution.
Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a spirit
of collaborative research.
Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
researchers and conference events.

The Consortium will be held on 3 September. Depending on the quality of the
applicants, the consortium will be held as a single track for 6-8
participants. The DC will be an afternoon event and will start with a DC
