of the Colloquium
The Doctoral Colloquium in Digital Government Research would be a forum where doctoral students from the various disciplines, relevant to digital government research shall meet to present their research work, discuss their ideas and concerns with senior faculty, peers, and practitioners, and relate with them for building their professional networks. It would be aimed to opens up a forum for exchange of ideas between doctoral students, leading academicians in India and abroad, and researchers from industry to identify new avenues of research and application to align management education with Sustainable Development Goals and national priorities, particularly ‘Digital India’.
For achieving and sustaining such goals, the role of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by all member states of the United Nations in September 2015 plays a critical role. These goals set ambitious objectives across the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic development, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability, underpinned by good governance. They represent an unusually complicated agenda for governments; requiring a new orientation of governments and a new approach to multi-stakeholder policy design and implementation.
This Colloquium promises to be an invigorating
confluence of the best brains from the academia,
government and industry.

Information Systems, Public Administration,
Economics, Law, Sociology, Computer Science,
Management, and other related fields. Thematic areas
for submission are as under:
The Colloquium will receive two kinds of participants:
- Students who have already defined their research topic and have progressed in their research to have some preliminary findings, but have not initiated the process for defending their thesis. Students under this category are requested to formally submit a paper explaining their research work, and based on a double-blind peer review process, authors of the accepted papers will be invited to present their work at the Student Sessions of the Colloquium. These selected students will be provided limited support for participation from IIT Delhi.
- Students who are
at the early stages of the PhD process, and have not
yet defined their research problem. Students under
this category are requested to submit an application
form, and will be invited to participate. Topics
discussed during the Open Sessions of the Colloquium
will be valuable for these students.
As decided by the Colloquium Chairs, a maximum of 15 students of accepted papers shall present their work at one of the Student Sessions. Students will have 15 minutes for their presentation and each presentation will be followed by an open in-depth discussion, with feedback provided to the student by session mentors and peers.
