2016 iConference Doctoral Colloquium Call for Submissions


The application deadline is September 28, 2015, 11:59 pm EDT


The Doctoral Colloquium will take place on Wednesday, March 23, 2016, the final day of the 2016 iConference. While the official Colloquium is a one-day event, other Colloquium-related events will be held throughout the iConference. Therefore, students are required to attend the entire conference, March 20-23, 2016.


We are seeking a broad representation of participants

The iConference Doctoral Colloquium is not limited to students from member iSchools. Priority will be given to students that are further along in their doctoral program who have not yet attended a colloquium event; however, applications to participate in the Doctoral Colloquium are encouraged from all doctoral students at any stage, including those still in coursework
 

Those participating will have the opportunity to present their work to senior faculty and engage with one another in a setting that is relatively informal, but that allows for the fullest of intellectual exchanges. Students will receive feedback on their dissertation, career paths, and other areas from participating faculty and student peers.


Financial Support

The conference organizers will seek financial support for the doctoral colloquium. Such funding, should it transpire, would help accepted participants offset a portion of their costs associated with attending iConference 2016. We cannot guarantee that all costs of participation will be covered
 

Applications

Applications should include a short introductory statement, a research statement (not to exceed 1,000 words), and a current CV, which can be submitted as as a single PDF document via our secure submission website.  For full details of the application process and the Colloquium in general, please visit the Doctoral Colloquium webpage.
