PhD and Professional Doctorate Consortium

Monday 8 April 2019, St Catherine's College, University of Oxford

Chairs: Dr Robert Campbell and Dr Diana Limburg

Keynote speaker: Professor Guy Fitzgerald 

The UKAIS consortium is a great opportunity for researchers undertaking an IS-related PhD or Professional Doctorate to gain input and feedback from senior IS researchers and peers. Research may be presented at any stage – from proposal to writing up.

The consortium provides:

·      Small group, in-depth discussions, which focus on participants’ research issues, around both the object and method of the research;

·      Understanding of work in progress by researchers active at PhD level in other universities;

·      Identification of and learning from other research related to the participant's interests.

Consortium attendees are also entitled to a discounted fee for attending the main UKAIS conference (9 and 10 April).

We invite PhD and professional doctorate students to submit a 500-1,000 word abstract summarising the aims, methods and relevancy of the research topic by Friday 22nd February 2019 to UKAIS2019@gmail.com, with the subject heading ‘UKAIS PhD Consortium’. Will we endeavour to notify you of acceptance within two weeks of you submitting your abstract.
