Doctoral Consortium


We invite PhD students of Business Informatics Research to submit papers to the Doctoral Consortium of the 22nd International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2023). Papers should be related to the topics of the BIR 2023 Conference. The Doctoral Consortium of Business Informatics Research is a forum for doctoral students who are interested in presenting their PhD research work and discussing it with senior researchers as well as other doctoral students. Thus, the Doctoral Consortium offers junior researchers the opportunity to receive feedback from other researchers in order to improve their doctoral theses. Moreover, the participants of the Doctoral Consortium may identify research issues that are related to their research interest and exchange knowledge with other doctoral students. The papers should reflect the current status of the student's PhD project, presenting a problem statement and research questions, scientific framing against existing literature in the problem domain, the (planned) research design and method, the proposed contribution and possible results achieved so far, as well as existing or planned evaluations of the contribution.

Paper selection

All Doctoral Consortium papers should have a PhD student as single author, describing that student's on-going and planned PhD work. All the papers submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will be reviewed by the chairs of the Doctoral Consortium and may have to be revised according to review comments before final acceptance. On acceptance, you will receive further instructions for preparing the camera-ready paper. The papers will be evaluated based on the following criteria: relevance, originality, appropriateness of the research methodology, research contribution, and clarity. The PhD students 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.

Submissions not focusing on an individual's doctoral research progress, should be directed either to the main conference or to the workshops, allowing the Doctoral Consortium to focus on its expected mission.
