Doctoral Colloquium

The Doctoral Colloquium is scheduled prior to the main conference programme, on June 3rd 2019, from 1 to 5 pm. The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) offers research students a special forum where they can present, discuss, and develop their research plans with peers and established senior researchers.

We especially welcome contributions which are related to the overall C&T conference theme - "Transforming Communities", and the ways that technology contributes to creating, recreating, or unsettling communities. The DC Chairs and Responders have expertise researching and designing technologies in varied offline and communities, across classes, ages, and genders, from urban to rural, and from migrant/settler to indigenous. However, we welcome all contributions falling in the scope of the C&T conference.
