The COSIT 2019 Doctoral Colloquium will take place on the first day (9-9-’19) of the conference and provides PhD students the opportunity to present their relevant research to international and interdisciplinary researchers and fellow students to gain important feedback. Students are encouraged to apply who are at any stage of their PhD from the early stages all the way to nearing completion. Typically, presentation topics are related to a PhD student’s doctoral dissertation research, but any research topic appropriate for COSIT may be presented, as long as the student is the primary author of the work.
Space permitting, all graduates who meet the deadline, format, and topic requirements will be invited to participate and give a brief oral presentation of their work. If the number of submissions exceeds the time available, the summaries will be screened by the COSIT Chairs for acceptance. The selection process will be based on the usual criteria of originality, scientific importance and relevance to the COSIT themes.
A novelty of the COSIT 2019 Doctoral colloquium will be the introduction of a mentoring theme, assigning each student participant a mentor, allowing for further in depth discussions with an expert of the relevant area.
Note that contributions to the Doctoral Colloquium will not be published in a proceeding. They will only be printed as a small booklet and distributed to the attendees of the DC.
Students are required to submit a brief summary of their work (no more than 1500 words in PDF format), along with a brief biography (no more than 300 words in plain text format) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The summary should be prepared using the same template as for the conference full papers. We suggest the following approximate structure for the summary:
- Abstract (max 150 words)
- Related Work
- Research Questions
- Expected/Actual Outcomes
- Further work
The biography should outline the academic background and research interests of the doctoral student submitting the abstract, and should indicate the current stage of the student’s PhD. The biographies and summaries will be distributed to the attendees of the DC
Submission deadline: June 1st , 2019
Notification: June 15, 2019
