Mid-year Doctoral Colloquium 2017
GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY, SOUTH BANK CAMPUS, BRISBANE
22-23 June 2017
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 2017 ANZMAC Mid-Year Doctoral Colloquium, hosted by Griffith Business School, is open to enrolled doctoral students who are at any stage of their doctoral training. Entry will be a competitive process as the colloquium will be limited to 30 student participants. Doctoral students will submit and present aspects of their doctoral work and receive feedback and mentoring from senior researchers. This doctoral colloquium will also feature presentations by leading world-class scholars including Professor Mark Uncles (University of New South Wales), Professor Sharyn Rundle-Thiele (Griffith University), and Visiting Associate Professor Sameer Deshpande (Department of Communications and New Media at the National University of Singapore).
The co-chairs of the Doctoral Colloquium are Associate Professor Krzysztof Kubacki and Dr. Denni Arli.
Participation is based on how far you are into your candidature: Students will be divided into two tracks to allow sessions to be tailored to students at different stages of completion:
Feedback from established scholars in your area of research: Participants’ proposal will be reviewed by two scholars within their field (or as close as possible) and feedback will be provided following the presentation at the Doctoral Colloquium. Participants will each be given 15 minutes for their presentation and 15 minutes for feedback, questions and discussion.
Partake in peer review and build your network: Participants will be placed into peer groups based on similarity of topics or research methods to be able to participate in relevant presentations and discussions. This is designed to enhance peer-review skills and facilitate networking.
Participate in workshops: Several presentations and discussions will be held by world class academics covering topics such as advancing your early career, juggling work and leisure and living a creative, fun and sustained academic life and working outside academia.

Strategy Challenge 2017 update
After two preliminary rounds, where teams became familiar with the online simulation application being used, we saw the completion of the first of ten competitive decision rounds.
It’s early days yet, but the UNSW team got out of the gates early and has already put some distance between themselves and the rest of the field. Are they on a winning strategy? Time will tell.
Check back for regular updates on team performance and industry manoeuvrings as the challenge progresses.
