Doctoral Consortium

We are planning for a face-to-face MENACIS 2021 Doctoral Consortium on November 11th, yet we are making contingency plans for a virtual consortium format.

Our Doctoral Consortium is a collegial environment to enable doctoral students currently working on dissertations in the area of Information Systems to share their work, receive constructive feedback, and build lifelong friendships.

English or French are the two accepted languages of the doctoral consortium and all submitted materials.

The application package should include the following the PhD student information including the dissertation abstract, and a Dissertation Proposal Abstract summarizing the research prepared by the student.

The submitted materials must be uploaded in ONE FILE and emailed to [email protected].

All submissions must be in Microsoft Word DOC/ DOCX format. The deadline for submission is August 3rd, 2021. Students’ packages that are incomplete, in other file formats, received after the deadline, or composed of multiple files will be declined.


Dissertation Proposal Abstract Format and Instructions

The Dissertation Proposal Abstract should outline the candidate’s research and in the form of an abbreviated dissertation proposal. It must include a cover page with the following information:

The proposal abstract should provide a motivation for the relevance of the research, the research question(s), a presentation of the theoretical basis and context for the research, a description of research approach and methodology, preliminary findings and expected contributions to knowledge. The document should also include a progress report as an appendix, indicating the estimated completion date and the work that remains to be done as of the date of submission of the proposal.
