We welcome you to the online doctoral consortium! The purpose of the DC is to welcome early career researchers into the Society. We therefore will engage in activities such as presentations, discussions, and panels to discuss a range of topics associated with the academic profession. And we hope we will contribute to creating a sense of community by facilitating meetings with peers and more senior researchers. During the DC, we will be using Zoom for all activities. The activities are planned between June 1st and June 7th. The schedule below outlines the detailed planning. Part of the program consists of mentoring sessions in small groups of 3 students. Besides the three organizers, we have invited 3 additional mentors to keep the groups small. We will announce the specific group constellations soon.

The date, time, and type of participation (regional or global) for each activity listed in the table below.
