Oslo Doctoral Workshop

Thursday, June 7, 2018

Workshop Overview

The SMS held a Doctoral Workshop on June 7, 2018, preceding the SMS Special Conference in Oslo. Attending doctoral students were accepted through an application process.

The main objectives of the Doctoral Workshop were to foster interaction among leading faculty scholars and doctoral students on various aspects of research and on preparing for a professional career in academia. The doctoral student participants broadened their academic network with senior faculty from around the world and developed a better understanding of the particularities of the academic career.

Applicant preference for this workshop was given to doctoral students whose interests and research to date relate to the focus of the SMS Special Conference in Oslo: Sharing Strategies for the Connected World. Leading researchers in the field brought their experience into the discussion to further develop participants’ insight into the key themes of this conference.

The format of the workshop was a combination of presentations by and interactive discussions with a panel of senior international faculty.
