Doctoral Consortium

We invite doctoral students doing design science research to submit a summary of their research at the 2022 International Conference on Design Science Research in Information Systems and Technology (DESRIST 2022) doctoral consortium. Our doctoral consortium brings together early-stage and experienced design science researchers and provides a platform for constructive exchange. You will appreciate the transformational mentorship experience as well as the exciting networking opportunities.
