About Doctoral Consortium

The organizing committee of Doctoral Consortium at International Forum 2019 is pleased to announce Call for Participation. International Forum 2019 is a joint event of three important conferences to be held from November 4 to 7 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

1. International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL)

2. Asia-Pacific Conference on Library and Information Education and Practice (A-LIEP)

This Doctoral Consortium is a very important and useful event for graduate students not only to present and discuss their studies but also to build human networks for the future activities.
