Doctoral Consortium - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

​Important Dates for the Doctoral Consortium

  • Deadline for Submission:
    8 September 2022

  • Acceptance Notification:
    15 September 2022

  • Presentation of Abstract:
    6 October 2022

The goal of the Doctoral Consortium is to help students with their thesis/dissertation and research plans by providing feedback and general advice in a constructive atmosphere. Students will present and discuss their research in the context of a well-known and established international conference, in a supportive atmosphere with other doctoral students and an international panel of established researchers.


A panel of prominent professors and experienced practitioners in the field of research will conduct the workshop. They will review all the submissions and comment on the content of the research and on the presentation. In the course of the workshop, students will also get the opportunity for one-on-one advice on students’ current research and guidance on future research directions as well as more general questions, e.g., on the differences in Ph.D. studies in different countries.


Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should submit an extended abstract describing their work. Submissions should be related to any aspect related to Information and Communication Technologies.


Submission Instructions
Submit an application that includes an extended abstract (limit of 2 pages) of your doctoral work. The extended abstract should be in English, in PDF format. 


In the extended abstract, the student should

  • describe the problem that will be addressed and why existing approaches do not

  • adequately address the problem,

  • provide 2-3 main research questions,

  • briefly summarize the methodology that the student plans to use to answer the

  • research question, e.g. the experimental setup, and

  • describe the expected contributions of the resultant research

All submissions will be reviewed by the Doctoral Consortium mentors. Students whose extended abstracts are accepted for the Doctoral Consortium will then be asked to make a 10-15 mins presentation, either online or in person.


Note that the Doctorial Consortium will be held at Hilton Mauritius Resort & Spa, Wolmar, Flic-en-Flac, 90503, Mauritius, on 6th October 2022.
