Doctoral Colloquium – Call for Papers – European Academy of Management (EURAM) – 2016 Doctoral Colloquium – May 29-31, 2016 – Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC), Paris, France

Are you a second or higher year doctoral student?

Would you like to become part of a highly motivated community of young researchers?

Do you want to engage with doctoral students from different parts of the world?

Do you want to meet the leading scholars in your field face-to-face?

Do you want to become the winner of the “EURAM 2016 Doctoral Colloquium Best Paper Award”?

Then we would like to invite you to the EURAM 2016 Doctoral Colloquium!


Enlarge your network and initiate dialogues with leading management scholars!

Experienced management scholars will share their knowledge in doing research and being a researcher. Learning from those scholars and asking them all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask is a great opportunity to become part of the management research community. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about the tacit knowledge underlying a PhD process and to get useful insights on how to complete a PhD in a successful way.


Cooperate with each other!

The largest part of the colloquium is dedicated to the discussion of your papers in small groups – each supervised by an experienced senior researcher, many of them global thought leaders in their field. The aim is not that you shall give a “traditional” paper presentation, but to briefly outline your research and from that engage in intensive interactive sessions aiming at giving you advice and feedback for the particular questions you have. We will circulate the papers of each group member in advance to make sure that each one can read the papers of the others before meeting.


Identify your way of joining the EURAM community of researchers!

You will get useful hints on how to become part of the EURAM Community of researchers. We will invite you to become part of our growing community and tell you more about, for instance, the European Early Career Community (EECC) and the EURAM Strategic Interest Groups (SIGs). The SIGs are the “heart and soul” of EURAM and SIG representatives will join in – not only with their scientific expertise – but also with information on the scientific development of EURAM that may be of great value for conference newcomers.


Express your talent and win the EURAM Paper Award for doctoral students!

Our scientific committee will select the winners of the EURAM 2016 Doctoral Colloquium Best Paper Award among all accepted submissions (1st price is 1000 Euro; 2nd price is 500 Euro; 3rd price is 300 Euro). This is an excellent opportunity to advance in your academic career!
