SMS India Special Conference in Hyderabad Junior Faculty Workshop

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Academic Centre, Level 2, AC7 LT

Workshop Overview

The Strategic Management Society (SMS) is pleased to announce a Workshop for Junior Faculty to be held on December 15, 2018 as part of the SMS India Special Conference in Hyderabad, December 15-18, 2018. The workshop will be held at the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad which will also be the venue for the SMS India Conference.

The workshop will aim to have about 20 to 25 participants with preference given to those with less than three years of experience. The Workshop will constitute primarily, (i) panel discussions and round table discussions on how junior faculty can succeed at both research and teaching and build fruitful academic careers and (ii) an interactive session where participants can receive feedback from mentors on a working paper as well as on their research program. The Workshop will also feature a Meet-the-Editors session, which will provide a great opportunity to get first hand insights on how editors manage the review process and what they look for in papers they eventually publish in the top-tier journals.

Acceptance of a paper at the SMS India Conference in Hyderabad is not required, but registration and attendance at the conference is needed.

The workshop will be led by a panel of experienced scholars including Dan Li (Indiana University), Ishtiaq Mahmood (National University of Singapore), Will Mitchell (University of Toronto), and Bala Vissa (INSEAD).
