This year GamiFIN invites doctoral students (irrespective of stage in the program) to apply to the first ever GamiFIN doctoral consortium. The doctoral consortium will take place 08.04.2019 at the Sokos hotel, Levi and will provide all doctoral students the opportunity to develop and discuss their research among other students and leading scholars including.

Any research presented at the consortium can also be submitted as a paper/poster in the conference, but the consortium will allow the attendees to more extensively develop their papers in collaboration with the conference chairs and keynotes, as well as other students.

There are three ways to submit/propose to join the doctoral consortium:
1) Submitting an application to the doctoral consortium through the conference submission system (5 page summary of research and a CV)
2) Submitting a full paper or a poster but checking the box “I also wish to submit the entry to the doctoral consortium”, 2.1.) in case the paper/poster is accepted to the full paper proceedings, the author(s) may also be accepted to present and develop the paper in the doctoral consortium 2.2.) in case the paper is rejected as a full paper/poster, it can still be accepted to the doctoral consortium to be developed further

Papers/posters accepted to the doctoral consortium will also be published in the proceedings under the doctoral consortium category (unless the same paper was also otherwise accepted to full paper/poster category).

The submission system will be opened in September 2018. The papers should not have been published in any other venue before.
