About the colloquium

Doctoral students who have completed their first year of candidature are warmly invited to submit their papers to the Doctoral Colloquium of the International Conference on Business Management (ICBM) hosted by Monash University, Australia on 11 December 2019.

ICBM is a proud collaboration between Monash Business School, Monash University, Australia, the Faculty of Management Studies and Commerce (FMSC) at the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka and the Sri Lanka Institute of Development Administration.

The Doctoral Colloquium will be held one-day before the start of ICBM and will include a day-long program allowing doctoral students to present their research to a panel of experts and get feedback and comments on their work. We are pleased to have Professor Daniel Prajogo and Professor Felix Mavondofrom the Monash Business School presiding over the presentations. Professor Prajogo and Professor Mavondo are accomplished and leading scholars who have successfully supervised many doctoral students and published in top-tier journals.

With their colleagues, Professor Prajogo and Professor Mavondo will deliver a seminar on two research topics. The first topic is writing and publishing research papers, followed by building collaborations for productive and quality research where they will draw from their academic experience.

The second part of the colloquium will be focused on interactive session where participants present their research and receive feedback from a discussant as well as audience. We invite theoretical and empirical papers related to the area of Management for presentation at the Colloquium. Possible Tracks for the Colloquium include General Management, Human Resource Management, Organizational Studies, Supply Change Management and Entrepreneurship.

This is a wonderful opportunity for doctoral students to present their work and get feedback from experts in the field of management, learn about what others are doing in their respective fields and meet and network with students and academics from around the world. Each paper will be allocated 20 minutes for interaction, and, therefore, we can only accept a maximum of 30 papers in this colloquium.
