The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are:
* To provide a forum where doctoral students can present and discuss

community including other doctoral students at the same stage of
their dissertation research.
The format of the Consortium will be: student presentations with plenary
discussions, individual meetings with experienced researchers, and more
informal discussions over lunch.

must include details of why the student wishes to attend and a
statement by the supervisor saying how the student would benefit.
Brief abstracts of the accepted papers will be published in the SIGIR
Conference Proceedings. Doctoral students who submit to the Consortium
are permitted to have previously published papers on their research, and
are encouraged to submit papers or posters to SIGIR and associated
