The Consortia (Masters, Doctoral and Post Doctoral) are events that are part of the activities of CONTECSI USP and aim to promote the integration and exchange of ideas between doctoral and master’s students of any program whose research projects are directly or indirectly related to the study of information and the areas of information technology, information systems, information and communication technologies, information management and information science.
It is, therefore, a privileged space for the presentation of master’s thesis and doctoral and post-doctoral thesis projects with the aim of expanding the academic debate, discussion of research proposals and their future impacts, dissemination to the community of their possible results and other contacts that enable the improvement of works, master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral programs of the promoting institutions.
The Consortia are structured around project discussion activities. They are informal boards made up of researchers in the areas of projects submitted by doctoral students, aiming at the exchange of ideas and contributions to projects under development, discussing topics such as research questions, information sources, methodology, presentation of results, forms of publication, interested communities, among others.
CONTECSI is the pioneer event in Brazil to introduce the master and post-doctoral consortium, and also the first with the objective of addressing the entire scientific production chain, from undergraduate to post-doctoral level, namely:
