Since 2011 the partner universities of the ESRC Scottish Graduate School of Social Science information science pathway have hosted an annual doctoral colloquium. This is aimed at students studying for PhDs in information science and other related disciplines. This year’s event takes place on Monday 24th June at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, and registrations for the day are now open. The event is suitable for doctoral students at all stages of their studies. Registration is free to UK students. International students can also attend for a small fee: if you are an international student who would like to attend please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
