"Supercharge your Doctorate: Increasing Effectiveness of the Research Process through Relevance, Responsibility, Rigour and Impact"

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 (31 March and 1 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 to UKAIS2020@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.
