Doctoral Consortium

Call for Papers

The 22th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2023) invites papers for the Doctoral Consortium of Business Informatics Research. Papers must be related to the topics of the BIR 2023 Conference.

The Doctoral Consortium of Business Informatics Research is intended to be a forum for researchers who are doctoral students with the purpose of discussing their PhD research work. The participants in the Doctoral Consortium will have the opportunity to present their papers, engage in discussions with the faculty members and receive feedback from them in order to improve their doctoral theses. Moreover, the participants in the Doctoral Consortium will have the opportunity to identify research issues that are related to their research interests and exchange knowledge with other doctoral students.

Papers should reflect the current status of the author's PhD project, presenting a problem statement and research questions, scientific framing against existing literature in the problem domain, the research design and method, the proposed contribution and results achieved so far, as well as existing or planned evaluations of the contribution.

Paper selection

All the papers submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will be reviewed by two faculty members who are senior researchers in business informatics. The papers will be evaluated based on the following criteria: relevance, originality, appropriate research methodology, research contribution, and clarity.

The accepted papers will be discussed with the faculty members. The authors of accepted papers will be invited to revise their papers based on the feedback received from the reviewers of the Doctoral Consortium, and resubmit it for publication in a CEUR-WS proceedings volume.

Submission Format and Publication

The papers should be submitted via EasyChair. We welcome both full papers (12 pages) and short papers (6 pages). Authors must use the CEUR-ART style for writing papers to be published with CEUR-WS.

The uniform style for the proceedings is 1-column. The CEUR-ART styles can be found in the file.

The proceedings of the BIR 2023 doctoral consortium and workshops are intended to be published together as one volume in series.
