Doctoral Consortium

Since 1998, SIGCSE has sponsored a Doctoral Consortium (DC) with three main goals:

  • To offer a friendly forum for students to discuss their work and receive constructive feedback.
  • To offer relevant information on issues important to doctoral candidates.
  • To nurture a community of researchers.

The DC is designed primarily for Ph.D students in computing-related areas who are planning a career in academia. Students whose research focus is related to computing education are a primary focus, although doctoral students in any computing-related area are welcome to apply.
