ICT4S 2023 Doctoral Symposium - call for participation

The ICT4S 2023 Doctoral Symposium is a one-day event to be held on 
Monday June 5, 2023 at the ICT4S 2023 conference 
<https://conf.researchr.org/home/ict4s-2023>in Rennes, France. The 
symposium will bring together doctoral students working in all areas of 
ICT for Sustainability and give them the opportunity to present and 
discuss their research in a constructive, friendly and highly 
interactive environment.

Each student will be given an opportunity to present his or her research 
project and receive constructive feedback from colleagues and peers at 
all career stages from the interdisciplinary field of ICT for 
sustainability. The doctoral symposium is run in a highly interactive 
and collegial format, and is designed to help you move your work forward.

The Doctoral Symposium welcomes any doctoral student who has already 
identified a dissertation topic and whose doctoral research will benefit 
from external feedback.
