Digital Futures at Work Research Centre

We are delighted to be collaborating with the Digital Futures at Work Research Centre (Digit Centre).

The ESRC-funded Digital Futures at Work Research Centre (Digit) studies the way that digital technologies are changing work and the impact on employers, workers and their representatives, job seekers andgovernments. 

Our research aims to generate new knowledge about the benefits, opportunities, risks and challenges of these changes that is theoretically informed, empirically evidenced and policy relevant.

The centre is co-led by the University of Sussex Business School and Leeds University Business School. Additional partners include the Universities of Aberdeen, Cambridge and Manchester in the UK and Monash in Australia.

A core objective of the Centre is supporting career development and capacity building for Mid and Early Career Researchers and we are delighted to be collaborating with the BAM for the 2023 Doctoral Symposium.

Frequently Asked Questions

Paper submissions

Q. Can I submit my paper / research conversation via the Conference submission site?

A. This is a separate submission process, different from that of the main conference. If you submitted a paper to the Conference, please use the same login details then click on the 'BAM2023 Doctoral Symposium' submission link. The link will be available from the 27th March. 

Q. Will my paper be published in the Conference proceedings?

A. Papers presented at the Doctoral Symposium will not be subject to review and will not be published in the proceedings.

Q. Can I submit the same paper I submitted to the Conference?

A. Please note that any paper which has been accepted at the Conference will not be allowed for the Doctoral Symposium. In these instances, students may wish to submit an alternative paper to the Doctoral Symposium.

Q. Do I have to attend the Doctoral Symposium day if I submit a paper?

A. All authors who submit will need to agree to attending the Doctoral Symposium in-person on 4th September in order to have a chance to present their paper or research conversation, and receive feedback from a senior academic from the BAM community. If you cannot attend the Doctoral Symposium, you will not be allowed to submit.
