Doctoral Consortium Papers

The TPDL Doctoral Consortium provides doctoral students with the opportunity to present their work to senior researchers and engage with mentors and peers in a setting that is informal and allows for the fullest of intellectual exchanges. Students will receive constructive feedback on their doctoral project work from consortium participants, both other students and senior researchers. The Consortium is also an opportunity to network with the other participants – potential future colleagues and collaborators.

All doctoral students with a project in the general area of the TPDL 2022 topics, who have advanced enough in their studies to have a clear idea of the focus and study design of their thesis are encouraged to apply. Participants must apply and have their submission accepted in order to present their work at the Consortium. When accepting applications, topical relevance and the degree to which the project is expected to benefit from comments will be considered.

Participation in the Doctoral Consortium is included in the conference registration.
