The annual conference is an interdisciplinary gathering that combines technology-focused approaches with humanities-inspired theoretical inquiry, empirical research and artistic expression. 

The Doctoral Consortium is an opportunity for PhD students is areas related with the topics of ICIDS to present their research work, at a stage where feedback from the community might be beneficial. Students will discuss the work with experts in the area and with peers in a friendly atmosphere where discussion and contributions will be encouraged.
