In conjunction with the conference, a PhD consortium is being organized at the University of Malta on Tuesday, November 1. The consortium is intended for current PhD students or PhD applicants to present and discuss their current or proposed research. The consortium will be organized in a way that will give students a space to receive feedback and suggestions from a panel of mentors and experts in the fields of philosophy, game studies, game design, philosophy of technology, and other topics relevant to the themes of the conference.
