IR15: Doctoral Colloquium — Call for Submissions

**Updated June 06, 2014**

The Association of Internet Researchers believes that its emerging researchers are the best in the disparate fields that constitute the field/s. In keeping with its commitment to students’ scholarship, we continue the tradition of bringing emerging and established scholars together through the Internet Research 15.0 Doctoral Colloquium (#IR15DC). The IR15DC offers PhD students working in internet research or a related field a special, day-long forum, to be convened on 22 October 2014 (IR15’s designated “Pre Conference Event” day). For many years, this pre-conference event has provided students with the opportunity to 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.

This year, Mary L. Gray will coordinate IR15DC. She will be joined by a diverse group of colleagues representing the range of AoIR scholarship. The final list of IR15DC Mentors will be announced shortly (if you plan to attend IR15 and would like to be considered for a spot as a Senior Mentor, please contact Mary ASAP directly at mLg {at} microsoft {dot} com).

Interested students should prepare 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; and b) A brief statement indicating why you want to participate in this doctoral colloquium and what you hope to get out of it.


Please submit the two-page application by Tuesday, July 11 to: Mary L. Gray: mLg {at} microsoft {dot} com

Applicants will be notified of acceptance by 29 July 2014. Successful applicants should register for the conference by the early bird deadline of August 1, and will be asked to prepare a four-page paper on their research and the issues they wish to discuss by 31 August 2014.
