Doctoral Consortium

Important Dates:

Nomination deadline July 1st 2011
Notification of Acceptance August 8th 2011

Nominations are invited for the International Conference of Information Quality (ICIQ) 2011 Doctoral Consortium. The consortium will be held on 17th November 2010, immediately prior to the ICIQ 2011 Conference, in Adelaide, Australia.

The Consortium provides a unique opportunity for doctoral students in Information Quality to present their research to an audience of peers and senior faculty in a sharing, supportive environment, and participate in a number of plenary sessions with senior Information Quality academics.

Objectives of the Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium will provide students with an opportunity to:
• Present their research work in a relaxed and supportive environment
• Receive feedback and suggestions from peers and experienced faculty
• Gain an overview of the breadth and depth of IS research
• Obtain insight into directions for IS research undertaken by other doctoral candidates
• Discuss concerns about research, supervision, the job market, and other career-related issues
• Network with peers and future colleagues

Submission Procedures

To be eligible for the Consortium the candidate must be a current doctoral student within a recognized university. 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 work remaining before expected completion. Submissions will be reviewed by a group of ICIQ Consortium faculty.
The language of the consortium is English. All submitted materials must be in English. Attendees must have sufficient proficiency in English to allow them to participate in the academic discussions of the Consortium.
If you wish to be considered for the Consortium you need to submit the following, via the online submission system.
1. A 3,000 word document (excluding the cover page and references) outlining the research topic, research question(s), key background literature, theoretical foundations, proposed methodology, current stage of the research, and plans for completion.
NB: The length restriction is rigid; documents exceeding 3,000 words will not be considered.
2. A cover page showing the candidate's full name, affiliation (university and school/department), and all contact details including name, mailing and e-mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. The candidate should also indicate the name(s) of his or her principal faculty supervisors.
