The Doctoral Consortium aims to:
The TPDL 2011 DC invites PhD students whose doctoral research is related to digital libraries and at a stage of progress where feedback from the international community might be of value, to submit extended abstracts of up to 10 pages describing their work. It is expected that students who submit extended abstracts, will have finished the first part of their research (one-two years of their studies) and be still in the middle of their research work.
A panel of prominent researchers participating in the TPDL Programme Committee will conduct the workshop. They will review all the submissions and comment on the content of the work as well as on the presentation. Students will have 20 minutes to present their research, focusing on the main theme of their thesis, what they have achieved so far and how they plan to continue their work. Another 20 minutes are reserved for discussion and feedback from the panel of reviewers. The Doctoral Consortium will take place on a single full day. Up to 12 students will have the opportunity to participate.
Submissions should be related to one or more of the conference themes as stated in the Call for Research Papers. Moreover, they should be presented in a way that demonstrates the link to the chosen conferences theme(s), and they should contain:
