We are pleased to announce a Doctoral Consortium at the 18th International Conference on Asia- Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL 2016) and Asia-Pacific Forum of Information Schools (APIS 2016). ICADL 2016 and APIS 2016 are organized jointly as International Forum 2016 at the University of Tsukuba, Japan from December 5 to 9, 2016 under the main theme “Knowledge, Information and Data in Open Access Society”. ICADL is one of the major international conferences dedicated to digital library research – JCDL, TPDL and ICADL based in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, respectively. APIS is organized as a collaborative event of the Asia-Pacific chapter of iSchools (APiSchools) and Consortium of information Schools in Asia-Pacific (CiSAP) to promote exchange and collaboration among information schools in Asia-Pacific.
This Doctoral Consortium is planned to help doctoral students develop their research ideas and broaden their research perspectives.
