The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) will be held on Wednesday, 31 January 2018 at The University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus, Brisbane. There will be four sessions involving presentations by doctoral students (who are registered and accepted for the DC), followed by discussions among all participants and academic mentors. The schedule of presentations by individual participants will be available one week prior to the conference.

About one week before the DC, all participants will receive copies of all the thesis/proposals that will be presented during the DC. It is expected that all DC participants will read every thesis/proposal and participate actively in the discussion.

All submissions will be subject to a double-blind review process. Further updates will also be available on Submissions Page of this website.
