PhD students in information studies (including LIS, IS, MIS and
information policy programs) are invited to submit applications for the
Connections 2006 Doctoral Consortium. The consortium offers an
opportunity for Ph.D. students making progress on their dissertation
research to share and discuss their research with peers and faculty
mentors. It will include multiple concurrent small group sessions
facilitated by experienced faculty members with expertise in the topic
area or methodological approach. In addition, there will be
opportunities to network with peers and faculty, learn about research
and publishing strategies, and engage in discussions on research,
teaching, jobs, and careers. As the purpose of the Doctoral Consortium
is to share and get feedback on research, it is most useful for students
who have defended a proposal (or are close to doing so).

The consortium will be held on Friday 19 May 2006 as a pre-conference
activity in conjunction with Connections 2006 (19-21 May 2006), at the
Syracuse University School of Information Studies, in Syracuse, NY.
Accepted participants will be expected to arrive in Syracuse by 6 pm on
Thursday 18 May 2006. A get-acquainted event will take place at 7 pm.
Participants are also encouraged to attend and present their research at
Connections 2006.


To apply, please go to http://floss.syr.edu:8008/ocs/submit.php?cf=1 and
upload an abstract (not to exceed 5 double-spaced pages including
figures and tables but not references) describing your proposed
dissertation. The submission should also include the expected timeline
for completing the dissertation, including the date of the proposal
defense, and all pertinent contact information.

The deadline for submissions is 10 March 2006 and accepted participants
will be notified by 24 March 2006. Faculty participants will be
identified soon at http://connections2006.syr.edu/consortium.htm. Please
contact Dr. Kevin Crowston <crowston at syr.edu> with any questions.
