Call For Papers
6th Annual South East European Doctoral Student Conference

Monday 19th & Tuesday 20th September 2011
Thessaloniki - Greece


Building on the success of the five previous Doctoral conferences
which each attracted over 100 papers from countries all over the SE
European region and beyond (UK, Greece, Germany, Poland, Czech
Republic, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Sweden, Serbia, FYR of
Macedonia, Belgium and as far as USA), we are pleased to announce the
organisation of the 6th SEERC Doctoral conference. The aim of the
conference is to further facilitate the exchange of knowledge between
young researchers and to consolidate the established network of
scholars currently undertaking research in South East Europe. Having
identified academic isolation as a problem that many doctoral students
face today, DSC 2011 aims to bring researchers together with the
purpose of establishing collaborative links between disciplines, for
testing the ground with innovative ideas and for engaging the wider
academic community. The Conference is open to young researchers
currently undertaking doctoral study, or in the early years of their
research career (up to 2 years following the award of their PhD
degree). It has an inter-disciplinary focus. More information on the
topic areas covered by the conference can be found on the page that
follows. All papers presented at the Conference will be evaluated by
an expert panel of academics and other PhD Conference participants.
Each presentation will be followed by questions from the audience and
comments/feedback from the panel members. The accepted submissions
will be included in the Proceedings. In addition, there will be a
general discussion session guided by the panel discussants and
participants, addressing various issues on PhD work and the experience
of carrying out research. There will also be a number of general
presentations focusing on useful skills development for doctoral

The research areas the papers should be addressed to are the following:

Research Track 1 (RT1): Enterprise, Innovation & Development
Research Track 2 (RT2): Information and Communication Technologies
