Doctoral Consortium


The HAICTA 2011 Doctoral Consortium provides doctoral students with an opportunity to have substantive interaction with other young and more experienced researchers regarding their proposed PhD research.


The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are:

  • To provide a forum where doctoral students can present and discuss their proposed research with more experienced researchers.
  • To give students an opportunity to establish a supportive community of other doctoral students at the same stage of their dissertation research as themselves.

The Consortium will take place one day before the main programme, with the format being: student presentations with plenary discussions, individual meetings with experienced researchers, and dinner.

Prospective student attendees should have written, or be close to completing, a thesis proposal. It is also desirable that the student not to be so close to completion of their dissertation that discussion would have little or no impact on the dissertation research.

Selection for attendance at the Doctoral Consortium will be based on a written paper. For more details read the Call for papers/posters section. Papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings as the rest of the papers.

Papers must be submitted electronically, via the submission web page.

Indicate your submission as a student paper. We will accept papers only in PDF format.

Doctoral students who submit to the Consortium are permitted, and indeed encouraged, to submit a full paper or poster on their research. However, acceptance for participation in the Consortium will be based solely on the paper submitted for the Consortium.

Content guidelines

The Consortium submission paper will be the basis for detailed discussions at the Consortium, and to get the most out of the discussion, a paper should include the following:

  • Motivation for the proposed research
  • Background and related work (with key references)
  • Description of proposed research including main research questions
  • Research methodology and proposed experiments (where appropriate)
  • Particular issues highlighted for discussion.

All papers will be reviewed with respect to overall quality of presentation, the potential for future impact of the proposed PhD research and the likely benefit to the student of attending the Consortium.
