For more information, please visit the conference website at www.aibse.org. AIB-SE Doctoral Student Consortium As part of the conference, AIB-SE is holding a doctoral student consortium inviting PhD students to submit research papers and defended dissertation proposals in abbreviated format. Students will receive feedback on their individual research projects as well as ideas and guidance for their future research agenda. This developmental session with senior faculty will provide doctoral students the opportunity to enhance their scholarly work in preparation for publication. There will also be some time for doctoral students to interact with participating faculty on topics of broad interest such as new trends in international business research, managing the dissertation stage and the job search process, and successful entry into the academic career. The Consortium will be followed by a Meet-The-Editors session allowing doctoral students to interact with editors and publishers of academic journals. The Doctorial Student Consortium and Meet the Editors session will be held on Wednesday, October 31, 2012. The most suitable candidates for the Consortium are Ph.D. students in any business discipline with an international focus who have completed their course work, are in the dissertation stage of their programs, and have a relatively clear idea about their dissertation research or other international research project. In order to make the consortium an effective exchange forum, we will restrict the number of participants and will emphasize quality and research potential of the dissertation/research topic.
