BAM2017: Call for PDW Submissions Officially Announced

8th March 2017

The BAM Vice Chair Portfolio: Academic Affairs of Conference and Capacity Building are pleased to formally announce the call for Professional Development Workshops (PDWs), to be presented at the BAM2017 Conference at The University of Warwick.

BAM dedicates the first morning of the Annual Conference to the Professional Development Workshops. The PDWs are open to all delegates and since 2012 have become amongst the well-attended and widely supported events at the BAM Annual Conference.

22 PDWs were presented at BAM2016 Conference and we are inviting you to submit workshop proposals on any aspect of business and management scholarship including research, teaching and engagement with practice.

If successful your proposal will play an important role in helping to update fellow academicians and providing research leadership in your chosen area or discipline.

The deadline to submit PDWs is Friday 28th April 2017 at 17:00 (GMT).

Please read on for more information about the PDWs.

  28th April 2017

Key information

Speakers will be given a session of 1.5 - 2 hours to present their Professional Development Workshop (PDW).

Professional Development Workshop proposals should be submitted via the normal BAM conference submission system where, for submission purposes only, they are listed as a track.

Please note: The BAM2017 Professional Development Workshops have their own morning session and are available to all conference delegates. As such they are distinct from workshops organised within individual tracks.

Things to consider

Before submitting your PDW proposal, we encourage you to think about the following points:

  • What is your PDW aspiring to achieve? How do you plan to communicate this across the various input sessions?
  • How will you convey your central message to attendees?
  • What do you envisage attendees taking from the event (New knowledge? New skills? Different opinions?)
  • Is the theme phrased in a way that is appealing to potential delegates?
  • Does every contributor add a unique perspective that further promotes your PDW’s aims and objectives?
  • How can your workshop emphasise the professional development opportunities it provides?
  • When planning the session please be aware that PDW sessions are 1.5-2 hours.

Specific Guidelines

PDW proposals should include:

  • A 250-word abstract of the workshop
  • A 1-2 page overview of the workshop
  • An explanation as to why the workshop should be of interest to BAM delegates and an estimate of likely numbers
  • A description of workshop’s format

Additional Information for PDW Proposals

  • If you have presented a successful PDW at other conferences we would encourage you to submit this to the BAM Conference too.
  • PDW proposals will not be published in the Conference Proceedings.
  • Details on scheduling and further information will be released closer to the date.

Deadline to Submit

Friday 28th April 2017 at 17:00 (GMT)
