The Winter 2009 Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries (TCDL) has the extended abstracts from the Doctoral Consortium of the 2009 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2009). Thanks to Lisa Spiro for such a great job putting together the latest IEEE TCDL Bulletin.
Megan Winget (UT Austin) and I organized the doctoral consortium this year. We were fortunate enough to have 24 submissions this year -- a record number -- of which we selected 14 for presentation. Those 14 students had their extended abstracts reviewed by a 10 person committee prior to the consortium and then they presented their research to the committee. More information about the participants and processes is available in our opening editorial and the JCDL 2009 Doctoral Consortium page.
Neither Megan nor I will be involved in the 2010 JCDL Doctoral Consortium, to be held in Gold Coast, Australia. Those wishing to participate should check the JCDL 2010 web site for details.
