The fourth doctoral consortium (DC) of the Swiss Chapter of the AIS (CHAIS) is aimed to provide multi-perspective feedback for doctoral dissertation projects, ideally in the middle (2nd or 3rd year) of their dissertation projects.
CHAIS is an association of all major Swiss information systems research groups at Universities.
DC faculty is comprised of experienced professors from all major groups. Currently, the following professors have agreed to serve as DC faculty:
Prof. Dr. Jens Dibbern, University of Bern
Prof. Dr. Christine Legner, University of Lausanne
Dr. Jolita Ralyté, University of Geneve
Prof. Dr. Gerhard Schwabe, University of Zürich
Prof. Dr. Robert Winter, University of St. Gallen
Doctoral students will be presenting and discussing their research projects in small groups together with experienced supervisors from Swiss Universities.
The following students have been accepted:
Dina Elikan, University of Lausanne (HEC)
Dana Naous, University of Lausanne (HEC)
Gabriel Abu-Tayeh, University of Bern
Liliane Ableitner, ETH Zürich
Tim Lehrig, University of Bern
Liudmila Zavolokina, University of Zurich
Michael Blaschke, University of St. Gallen
Doctoral students are expected to
(a) apply to be admitted to the DC until April 15. Applications should include the following:
- a motivation letter and one-page summary paper of their dissertation project
- a (very short) support statement of their supervisor,
(b) submit a five to ten page dissertation paper by May 15, summarizing motivation, related work, problem statement/research gap, proposed research approach, planned or actual evaluation
(c) attend the doctoral consortium on June 2, present and discuss their papers in 60 minute sessions (30 mins presentation, 30 mins discussion)
(d) attend a general dissertation Q&A session together with DC faculty
Upon participation and if all the requirements are met, CHAIS will deliver a letter certifying successful participation. This letter might be useful in getting some credits in the home institution if applicable.
There will be no charge for attending the DC. Participants will however need to cover travel and accommodation costs with own funds and need to be or become members of the CHAIS.
