The CRIWG Doctoral Consortium aims at bringing together PhD students working on groupware and give them the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. The goals of the Doctoral Consortium event are:

  •     * To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the selected Ph.D. students on their research thesis.
  •     * To interact with other PhD students and stimulate an exchange of ideas and suggestions among participants.

To help achieving this goal the doctoral consortium will be moderated by experienced researchers from the field.
