The Accounting, Behavior, and Organizations Section of the AAA is pleased to announce its seventh Doctoral Consortium. The Consortium will be held in conjunction with the Annual ABO Research Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on October 5 and 6, 2012. The Consortium is designed for PhD students interested in conducting behavioral research. New faculty (i.e., first three years post PhD) also will be considered for attendance at the Consortium, space permitting.
The Consortium will begin with an early-evening reception on Thursday, October 4. The
Consortium will take place the morning of Friday, October 5 (immediately prior to the ABO Research Conference). Expert researchers will present talks on how to conduct and publish high-quality research as well as how to manage academic careers. Participants also will have opportunities to ask questions and interact with the presenters.
Consortium and Conference registration is free for student members of the AAA (although students need not be members of the ABO section). Registration includes breakfast and lunch Friday and Saturday, as well as early-evening receptions on Thursday and Friday. In addition, the ABO section will pay for two nights at the conference hotel for up to 30 PhD student participants. Preference will be given to students who did not receive free hotel rooms at the 2011 ABO conference. Students receiving free rooms will share a room with another student participant (hotel pairings will be made by ABO). For students receiving free rooms for two nights, the cost of the Consortium and Conference will be only the cost of transportation and dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and possibly hotel accommodations for Saturday night if needed. Thus, attending the Consortium and Conference is a very affordable opportunity for students.
Students interested in attending should send the completed Consortium Application via email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, August 13. We will process qualifying applications in the order they are received. If you qualify, please apply early since space is limited.
Students attending the Consortium are automatically registered for the Conference. However, new faculty accepted for the Consortium will need to register for the Conference separately. For more information and the application form, please go to Doctoral Consortium Application.
We are excited about this opportunity to bring together new and established behavioral researchers to exchange ideas and experiences. We hope that you will be able to attend.
