A doctoral consortium will take place as in previous years in conjunction with the CPR 2018 conference. It is meant for students spanning those at an early stage in their doctoral program to those who are more advanced and are at the stage of writing their dissertation proposal, and who are conducting research on a topic related to the conference theme or to the broad focus of the CPR conference on understanding issues pertaining to the intersection of information technology and people. The purpose of the consortium is two-fold: 1) provide feedback and guidance to students on their proposal while at a stage where feedback can be considered for future dissertation work, and 2) provide mentoring and networking opportunities to students who wish to pursue careers as researchers at the intersection of information systems and people.
Doctoral students must be nominated to the consortium by a faculty sponsor. Students nominated for the consortium should submit via email to Dr. Tim Weitzel (firstname.lastname@example.org
Funding will be available to assist with travel and registration fees to students selected for the doctoral consortium.
