The Consortium is intended for researchers undertaking a PhD or Professional Doctorate in keeping with the main themes of the conference. Researchers may present work at any stage. The consortium aims to provide:

·       Understanding of work in progress by other researchers active at PhD level in other universities;

·       Identification of other research related to the participant's interests. 

We invite PhD and professional doctorate students to submit a 500-1,000 word abstract summarising the aims, methods and relevancy of the research topic by Wednesday 1st March 2017 to with the subject heading ‘UKAIS PhD Consortium’.
