ILS Doctoral Research Forum 2023

Welcome to the Department of Information & Library Science Doctoral Research Forum 2023 (ILS-DRF 2023)

The ILS Doctoral Research Forum (DRF) is a yearly event that focuses on motivating Ph.D. students to participate in innovative research through the lens of information and library science, social sciences, policy studies, technolgies and other interdisciplinary fields.

This year ILS-DRF 2023 will be held on Oct. 7th, 2023 and we encourage all PhD student to submit their finished or ongoing research ideas at the forum. The forum provides a great opportunity for doctoral students to present and discuss their research with peers and faculty members.

Presentation time will vary depending on the number of presentations. We expect a maximum of 15 minutes to present, followed by 5 minutes QA.

As in the past, there will be monetary prizes for the presentations ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place by the ILS professors! So make sure to submit a presentation. :)

Please contact us if you have any questions.
