The CAiSE'12 Doctoral Consortium is intended to bring together PhD
students working on foundations, techniques, tools and applications of
information systems and give them the opportunity to present and
discuss their research in a constructive and international atmosphere.

The goals of the Doctoral Consortium event are:

- To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the selected
Ph.D. students on their research thesis
- To provide the opportunity to meet experts from different
backgrounds working on topics related to the Information Systems
Engineering field
- To interact with other PhD students and stimulate an exchange of
ideas and suggestions among participants

The CAiSE'12 Doctoral Consortium will be accompanied by prominent
professors in the field of information systems who will actively
participate in and contribute to the discussions. The workshop in
Gdansk will be the 19th Doctoral Consortium of a series held in
conjunction with the CAiSE conferences.

We particularly encourage students that are somewhere in the middle of
their research to submit to this workshop. The participants of the
doctoral consortium are also strongly encouraged to register for and
attend the main conference.

the state of existing solutions,
- present clearly any preliminary ideas,
- the proposed approach and the results achieved so far,
- sketch the research methodology that is being applied,
- point out the contributions of the applicant to the solution of
