Doctoral Symposium

This year the doctoral symposium will be held on Friday, November 20, before the conference officially starts. Doctoral students will have the opportunity to network with many faculty during the doctoral symposium.

This symposium will be free to attend for DSI members but will require an online registration. Registration for the symposium is separate from registration for the conference, which will have a $75 fee. Registration for one event does not automatically apply to the other.

The symposium will offer panels of speakers to provide wisdom on better managing an academic career, interactive sessions with journal editors, professional development workshops and even some social events!

During the actual conference, there is a special track for students that are on the job market (Doctoral Showcase, https://decisionsciences.org/annual-conferences/national-dsi/showcases/doctoral-research-showcase/). The Showcase is for doctoral student papers that are in advanced stages of conceptualization with a view to mentoring and providing high-quality feedback on the papers. If you are interested in this part of the conference, you will need to submit a manuscript through the normal conference channels and register for the main conference.

Special thanks to PHD Research Track Facilitator Cindy Blair, Brigham Young University and PHD Teaching Track Facilitator, Yi-Su Chen, University of Michigan for all their efforts in putting together these special sessions for the Doctoral Symposium.
