ICISO 2010 PhD Consortium

Doctoral Consortium In collaboration with 12th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations

July 19th, 2010, Reading, UK

The 2010 International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO 2010), previously named International Conference on Organisational Semiotics (ICOS), is the twelfth in a series of international events devoted to the latest research in informatics in organisations and organisational semiotics. ICISO has always aimed to provide a focal forum for active researchers and academics, practitioners, business and industrial professionals from a diversified range of domains including information management, information systems, business and engineering.

In support of this aim, ICISO2010 are planning a one-day doctoral consortium for research students who wish to benefit from an environment in which they can share and discuss their goals, methods and results at an early stage of their research. Submitted papers will be assessed independently from those of the ICISO conference, and an electronic set of doctoral proceedings will be available. During the doctoral consortium, researchers will be asked to present their work either in the form of a poster or as an oral presentation. Additional time will be allocated for oral presentations to allow general discuss concerning interesting work in progress. In addition, commercial and academic speakers will lead informative sessions covering relevant research topics. Specific doctoral topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Important dates 300 word abstract: 12 April, 2010 26 April, 2010 (Deadline extended)
Notification of acceptance: 3 May 2010 Camera-ready paper (maximum 6 pages): 11 June 2010 Consortium Date: 19 July 2010

Submission Guidelines Research students are invited to submit a 300 word abstract relating to original, unpublished research. The camera-ready papers (maximum 6 pages, in English), must be submitted via easychair in pdf file format. The paper template can be found here here. Registration cost for the PhD consortium, with full access to the ICISO conference, is fixed at the reduced fee of 280. Registration, to just the PhD consortium, or for ICISO conference authors, is 70.
