Deadline for Submissions approaching:
We are accepting submissions for iConference 2022, with submissions for the doctoral colloquia due Oct. 4, 23:59 Pacific Midway (SST, GMT -11).
The iConference Doctoral Colloquium has long provided doctoral students the opportunity to present their work, and engage with their peers and faculty members in a setting that is relatively informal, but allows for high-quality intellectual interactions.
New for 2022, we plan to offer a total of three Doctoral Colloquia, one for each of our three regions (Asia Pacific; Europe; North America). We feel this regional approach will help us better target the needs of our student participants.
During the iConference, participation in the Doctoral Colloquia will be restricted to those students who have applied and been accepted; the colloquia will not be open to observers.
Applications to participate in our Doctoral Colloquia are encouraged from any and all doctoral students. We are seeking broad representation, and participation is not limited to students from member iSchools; Ph.D. students from any university are encouraged to apply.
Application instructions are posted below. Questions can be sent to the Doctoral Colloquium Chairs listed at the bottom of this page.
Student participants in each of our doctoral colloquia will be selected by a faculty review committee. Application materials will be submitted as a single pdf document to our ConfTool submission site by Oct. 4, 2021. All materials must be in English, and include the following two sections:
Section 1: A short introductory statement explaining:
Section 2: A research statement of no more than 500 words describing their dissertation project.
The doctoral colloquia co-chairs encourage student applicants to also submit their work for possible presentation in poster or paper sessions. These submissions will go through the regular conference review process.
In order to promote extended interaction among conference attendees and students, those accepted for the doctoral colloquia will be expected to meet the following obligations after they have been accepted:

The 2022 doctoral colloquia are currently in the planning phase. Each will provide doctoral students the opportunity to present their research, receive feedback from leaders in the field, and participate in events with other doctoral students. More details will be posted as they become available.
The iConference 2022 Doctoral Colloquium will be virtual. With all participation taking place online, participants will have no travel or lodging costs. Accepted participants will be given a special discounted conference registration rate. Details will be provided in the acceptance notifications.
