ABC Europe 2009 International PhD colloquium + research mentoring programme
Researchers who are currently working on a PhD in the broad area of business discourse are invited to submit a proposal on the workshop theme of ‘Displaying competence’. Successful applicants will be invited to present a paper at the DiO workshop (40-minute slots, including 20 minutes of discussion and question time). After the workshop, they will be included in a mentoring programme in which two senior researchers will help them develop their workshop paper into a presentation to be given in a special session on the workshop theme at the ABC Europe Convention in Antwerp from 26 to 29 May 2010. Guidance will also be provided in transforming their paper into an article to be published in a special issue on the workshop theme that will be submitted for publication to the Journal of Business Communication.
Please send an abstract of 300 words (detailing research question, method, data and conclusions) plus a short text of 100 words about your PhD and a letter of recommendation by your PhD supervisor to firstname.lastname@example.org before 31 January 2009.
Contributors will be informed of the decision of the organizing committee by the end of February.
