MCIS and CAPSI 2024 Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium 2024

The Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium will (DJFC) occur on October 2, 2024 in Porto, Portugal, hosted by Porto Business School (PBS).
The MCIS an Association for Information Systems (AIS) affiliated conference and CAPSI DJFC aims to support doctoral students and researchers at the early stage of their careers in the fields of Business, Management, and Information Systems in order to develop effective career plans based on their personal and professional goals. More specifically, the DJFC has three primary objectives:

•    To provide students and early-stage researchers with networking opportunities with peers and faculty members.
•    To support students and early-stage researchers in strategizing their research, dissertations, teaching, and career plans.
•    To reflect on academic career aspirations and dynamics.


The program includes two keynote speakers:

José Esteves, Porto Business School (PBS)

Students and early-stage researchers will be split into small groups based on their research focus and career stage to promote collaboration. Each panel will involve multiple faculty members and students with the goal of having a 1:1 ratio of faculty mentors to junior faculty and doctoral students.
