10th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems
12 - 16, June 2008            Barcelona, Spain



Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium will take place in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS), to be held June 12-16 in Barcelona, Spain. The ICEIS'08 doctoral consortium will provide an opportunity for graduate students to explore their research interests in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished experts in the field.
The Doctoral Consortium on Enterprise Systems Engineering is intended to bring together Ph.D. students within the enterprise systems engineering field to discuss their research in an international forum. The Doctoral Consortium will provide students with an opportunity to:

• Present their research work in a relaxed and supportive environment
• Receive feedback and suggestions from peers and experienced faculty
• Gain an overview of the breadth and depth of enterprise systems research
• Obtain insight into directions for enterprise systems research taken by other doctoral candidates
• Discuss concerns about research, supervision, the job market, and other issues
• Network with peers and future colleagues

Thus, the symposium will help shape ongoing and future research projects aimed at enterprise systems, will promote scholarship and networking among new researchers in this emerging interdisciplinary area, and will expose these promising young researchers to the larger global community.

- Doctoral Consortium is open only to Doctoral Students who have started their research;
