UOWD HDR Colloquium 2017

Call for papers - submission due date: 5 April 2017

UOWD invites you to submit your proposal for an oral presentation or/and poster presentation in their inaugural Annual HDR Colloquium. 
The Colloquium is designed to enhance HDR student’s experiences by showcasing your research, sharing of ideas, networking with fellow HDR students and create and strengthen professional and research ties in a friendly and supportive environment.  
The Colloquium offers a unique collaborative opportunity for PhD and DBA students from UOWD to receive useful and instructive feedback on their thesis research as well as on potential ideas for publications and conference presentations.












Conference Proceedings

The one-day event, hosted by UOWD, will begin with key note addresses and short presentations from renowned academic speakers.  The program will also include panel and roundtable discussions led by experienced doctoral supervisors who will provide valuable strategies for doctoral students to succeed in each thesis stage. 
Participants will then be split into thematic presentation sessions which will be chaired by experienced academics. Each session will be organised as follows:
• A Presenter will give a presentation of a research paper (20 minutes)
• The Session chair will give a short critical analysis of the presenter’s work (5 minutes) 
• A Q&A led by a session chair will follow (5 minutes).
All presenters will receive a participation certificate and prizes will also be awarded for best presentations at the end of the program.
