Message from the Doctoral Consortium Chairs:

The IEEE CBI 2016 Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for doctoral candidates to explore and develop their research interests in an interactive workshop under the guidance of a panel of distinguished researchers. We invite doctoral candidates who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their dissertation work to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with junior researchers in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field. The strongest candidates will be those who have a clear topic, research approach and direction, and have made some progress but who are not shortly before submitting their thesis. A submission to the DC should clearly describe motivation, goal, expected results and the research approach taken. We encourage doctoral students who prepare a submission to reflect upon these questions: What makes the research I do especially appealing for me (for the scientific discipline of Business Informatics, for practice)? How can I justify that my research results will match the goals of the dissertation? How can I show that the results of my work will contribute to advancing the field? What are open questions that I still need to clarify? In addition to stating how you intend to benefit from participation, both you and your advisor should be clear on what you can contribute to the Doctoral Consortium.
