The 16th EurOMA Doctoral Seminar will take place at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland on Saturday and Sunday July 1 and 2, 2017.
The EurOMA Doctoral Seminar provides PhD students with a forum to present and discuss their research, and an opportunity to get feedback from and exchange comments with fellow PhD students and established researchers in Operations Management.
The Doctoral Seminar consists of two ‘classes’ or years. In the first year class, participants are invited to present their research design and preliminary results. This class is meant for students who are in the first year or early in the second year of their PhD studies. Students who took part in a previous first year class will be invited to join the second year class. In that class, the discussion will focus on results and preliminary conclusions (contribution to theory, methodology and/or practice of Operations Management).
A faculty of established and renowned OM scholars will take part in the Doctoral Seminar, providing support and feedback, sharing their experiences, and engaging actively in the discussions.
To apply to participate in the 16th EurOMA Doctoral Seminar, first year applicants must submit a short project description (5 pages) with name, project title, affiliation, and a letter of recommendation from their supervisor. These two documents must be sent by e-mail no later than Friday February 17, 2017 to Professor Pär Åhlström at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Second year participants should confirm their participation by e-mail no later than Friday February 17, 2017 to Professor Pär Åhlström at email@example.com.
