The Doctoral Colloquium offers PhD students working in Internet research or related fields a one day forum to be convened on 5 October 2016 at the AoIR 2016 conference in Berlin. For many years, this pre-conference event has provided students with the opportunity to spend a concentrated amount of time with senior scholars to share research projects, address methodological and theoretical challenges, and exchange informal advice on juggling the multiple pressures associated with job searching, publishing, and finishing the dissertation.
As always we will have excellent mentors in place. Fiona Atwood, Nicole Ellison, Andrew Herman, Tama Leaver, Annette Markham, Sharif Mowlabocus, Karine Nahon, Susanna Paasonen, Zizi Papacharrisi, and Michael Zimmerare already signed up and we are sure to have more great people join them.
To apply for a place at the consortium, please provide:
a) a two-page summary of your research. This should provide a context for the research, describe the methods being used, the progress to date, and primary concerns and issues;
b) A brief statement indicating why you want to participate in this doctoral colloquium and what you hope to get out of it.
Submissions for the colloquium should be emailed to aoir2016dc at aoir dot org. Submissions are due June 15, 2016.
If you have any questions, please do get in touch, and please do circulate this message throughout your networks. We look forward to your submissions.
