The Doctoral Consortia on Advanced Information Systems Engineering are intended to bring together PhD students within the information systems engineering field and give them the opportunity to present and to discuss their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. They are accompanied by prominent professors in the field of information systems which provide feedback on the research work presented by doctoral students.
Submissions to Doctoral Consortia are extended abstracts of ongoing
Ph.D. research in the field of information systems engineering. For the
7th Doctoral Consortium of CAISE*2000, 10 submissions were accepted, 9
papers were presented at the Workshop. The papers demonstrate a variety
of research approaches and research topics, covering research on
Internet systems, cooperative and distributed information systems,
modeling methods and tools, object oriented component technologies,
knowledge and software management and business processes. During the
workshop, each paper was introduced by a 20 minute presentation,
followed by a 25 minute discussion of thesis topics, research methods
and research limitations.
Furthermore, the 7th Doctoral Consortium was rounded off by a discussion of general questions related to Ph.D. research. They included guidelines for presentations, guidelines for working on a Ph.D. thesis, and a comparison of the differences in Ph.D. study and research work in different countries.
Special thanks are due to the accompanying professors of the 7th Doctoral Consortium: Jan Dietz (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands), Klaus R. Dittrich (University of Zurich, Swiss), Juhani Iivari (University of Oulu, Finland), Yair Wand (Commerce University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada). The Doctoral Consortium would not have been possible without their valuable contributions. Furthermore, we thank all the participants for their great interest and effort displayed both in preparation and presentation of their own work, as well as in the discussion of the contribution of others. Finally, we sincerely thank the organizing committee and local organizers of the CAISE*2000 conference for their continuous support to preparing the Doctoral Consortium.
