EIASM – EMAC Doctoral Colloquium & Conference

Colloquium & Conference.

The European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) and the European Marketing Academy (EMAC) in collaboration with Copenhagen Business School, are organising the 23rd Colloquium for doctoral students in marketing. The colloquium will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark from Sunday, May 30 until Tuesday, June 1, 2010, immediately prior to the EMAC Conference 2010.

The colloquium provides outstanding doctoral students in marketing who want to pursue a career in academics with an opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and leading academics in the field of marketing. All topics and methodological approaches within the broad field of marketing will be considered.
The colloquium will mostly proceed in parallel tracks based on the topical and/or methodological angle of participants’ work as well as on the stage of the dissertation process. Students will discuss their work with their fellow students and with three track faculty, who are renowned experts in the field. In addition there will be faculty presentations designed to help students plan and manage their dissertation process.
Doctoral students in different stages of their dissertation process can apply for participation in the doctoral colloquium.

There will be:

Three tracks for students in an intermediate or advanced stage of their dissertation process. Students in these tracks should have a good knowledge of the literature in their domain of study and clear research questions. They should be in the process of starting the data collection or have already finished this. Students in these tracks will have 90 minutes to present and discuss their dissertation work. They can benefit from the colloquium by subjecting the positioning of their research to a critical review, refining their data collection approach, and/or receiving suggestions for translating their work into papers that can be submitted to excellent journals.

Three tracks for students in an early stage of their dissertation process. Students in these tracks should have a (tentative) proposal for the topic they want to study, the method they want to use, and the potential contribution. They will have 60 minutes to present and discuss their dissertation work, and will receive suggestions on how to focus and position their work.

The doctoral colloquium will be held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere. In respect to this philosophy, participants are required to attend the entire colloquium. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
