Dear All

On behalf of UKAIS (UK Academy for Information Systems) I am writing to 
tell you that there are still places available on the Doctoral 
Consortium that will take place on 3rd April 2017, just before the UKAIS 
Conference itself, at St Catherine's College, Oxford, UK.

The Doctoral Consortium has been running for many years and is always a 
very successful event judging from the feedback of the participants. For 
some, it has turned around their progress, and for others it has helped 
enormously, as well as providing a long-lasting support network of 
fellow PhDs. It is designed for PhD students at any stage of their 
studies and provides an opportunity for them to present their work and 
receive feedback from experienced supervisors and fellow students. This 
is particularly valuable for those who are not studying as part of a 
large PhD programme or have few other Information Systems colleagues in 
their home institutions.

So if you have any students who might benefit from the Consortium - it 
is not too late. Please contact Diana Limburg (dlimburg at brookes.ac.uk). 
Details below. Please also forward this notice on to other colleagues 
who might have potential attendees.

Many thanks.
