Doctoral Colloquium

The Doctoral Colloquium is scheduled on the first day of the conference, on May 29, 2023 (exact times will be communicated). The Doctoral Colloquium (DC) offers research students a special forum where they can present, discuss, and develop their research plans with peers and established senior researchers.

We especially welcome contributions that are related to the overall C&T conference theme – “Humanization of Digital Technologies”. However, we welcome all contributions falling within the scope of the C&T conference.
