The ECTEL Doctoral Consortium is intended to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics related to professional training. The doctoral consortium will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in an interdisciplinary and international atmosphere.
The doctoral consortium will be accompanied by prominent professors andresearchers in the field of professional learning. These accompanyingprofessors will participate actively and contribute to the discussions.
The doctoral consortium is co-located with and will take place immediately before the ECTEL 2006 conference. The doctoral consortium language isEnglish.
As for the ECTEL conference, all topics from the field of professional learning are of interest for the doctoral consortium.
Papers describing doctoral work should be submitted in PDF or PostScript format before June 7, 2006. The paper length should not exceed 6 pages (single linespace, Times New Roman (or similar) font type, 12 pt font size, reasonable margins).
In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address specifically doctoral work! Therefore, the following elements are recommended:
The intention of this doctoral consortium is to support and inspire Ph.D. students during their ongoing research efforts. Therefore, it is necessary that authors will have neither achieved their Ph.D. degree nor officially submitted their thesis before the doctoral consortium (October 2, 2006). To enforce this rule we require authors to disclose their expected graduation date and their advisor's name when submitting.
Papers will be reviewed by at leas two members of the doctoral consortium committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. Papers will also be made available electronically to the participants before the symposium to facilitate preparation of discussions and questions. Presentations will be kept short (10-15 minutes). A discussant, a member of the doctoral consortium committee, will be appointed to each paper. Discussant comments will be followed by a plenary discussion of the paper. At the end of the consortium there will be a general discussion, including a brainstorming session about current and future research topics in the area.
Only electronic submissions are accepted. E-mail your paper as an attachment in PDF or Postscript format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A supporting letter should be sent by the PhD supervisor by e-mail to email@example.com or by Fax: +49 241 8021513 to Ralf Klamma
Participants should register for the ECTEL conference itself at student rate.
