Hi everyone,

This is a final reminder that applications for the AoIR 2016 doctoral colloquium are open and due on or before 15 June 2016.

The colloquium offers PhD students working in Internet research or related fields a one day forum to be convened on 5 October 2016. For many years, this pre-conference event has provided students with the opportunity to spend a concentrated amount of time with senior scholars to share research projects, address methodological and theoretical challenges, and exchange informal advice on juggling the multiple pressures associated with job searching, publishing, and finishing the dissertation.

As always we will have excellent mentors in place. Fiona Atwood, Andrew Herman, Annette Markham, Sharif Mowlabocus, Karine Nahon, Susanna Paasonen,Zizi Papacharrisi, D.E. Wittkower and Michael Zimmer are already signed up and we are sure to have some more great people join them.

To apply for a place at the consortium, please provide:

a) a two-page summary of your research. This should provide a context for the research, describe the methods being used, the progress to date, and primary concerns and issues;

b) A brief statement indicating why you want to participate in this doctoral colloquium and what you hope to get out of it.

Please email your applications to aoir2016dc at aoir.org

Also note that, in order to increase the diversity of participation in the AoIR conferences, the Association of Internet Researchers makes available conference fee waivers and partial travel stipends ($500) per year. Conference scholarships can be made available to colloquium participants. All applications for this should be emailed directly to the President of AoIR (Jenny Stromer-Galley, prez at aoir.org.
