Doctoral Consortium

SoCS Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is aimed at providing Ph.D. students with the opportunity to engage with established researchers closely, get feedback on their research, gain advice on career possibilities, foster networking, and present their work during the conference.

As part of the Doctoral Consortium, SoCS will provide graduate students with an opportunity for in-depth advice from senior members regarding careers and research skills. Each student accepted to the DC (see below for the acceptance procedure) will be matched with an established researcher in the field, who will assist the student with research and career management advice.

We invite all students to apply.

Master Classes

Prof. Hang Ma, Simon Fraser University

Prof. Forest Agostinelli, University of South Carolina


Student Support:

SoCS will aim at providing student support, partly covering travel and/or registration costs through a separate scholarship application process. Participation in the DC, however, is a requirement for students receiving travel assistance. 

More information will be announced soon.
