Call for submissions (presentations, posters, workshops)
We invite Ph.D. students from all the participating universities to complete the following application form (mtlphd.ca/submissions) to submit a proposal for the conference. Three types of submissions are possible.
Presentations are short conferences where you present the results of your research, the research design, literature review or theoretical framework that you have developed or are working on. It could be related to your thesis or other research projects you are involved in. Both individual and group presentations are welcome. Conferences are 10 minutes for oral presentation, plus about 5 minutes for comments and questions from faculty and students, for a total of 15 minutes per time slot.
To submit a presentation, you must provide a title, an abstract (250-300 words), and the names of the authors along with their affiliations (university and department). At a minimum, the abstract must describe your research interests and/or your project, questions and issues that you are facing, as well as the relevance (contribution) of this research.
The poster session is designed to generate discussion, promote networking, and build research communities. While less common in administration studies, posters are used by researchers in many scientific fields to showcase their research in a synthesized form. Posters will be displayed in the main room for the duration of the symposium, and there will be designated times during which researchers will be invited to stand by their poster to explain its contents and discuss with participants and guests. A dedicated workshop is planned on November 25th in order to help you to create your poster.

Workshop sessions *New feature*
Workshop sessions are a completely new feature of the 2023 PhD Symposium! We encourage students who are interested in organizing and facilitating a workshop for their peers to submit a proposal to the organizing committee. Workshops are participative activities where participants either examine and reflect on a specific issue or develop specific competencies. For example, past student-facilitated workshops in the joint program have focused on engaged research, slow scholarship, various qualitative methodologies, etc. We encourage students (individuals or groups) to submit their ideas -the bolder, the better. Support for logistics will be provided. Workshop duration should not exceed 1.5 hours.
To submit a workshop session, you must provide a title, an abstract (250-300 words), and the names of the authors along with their affiliations (university and department). At a minimum, the abstract must describe your workshop’s objectives, its relevance, and intended audience. Additionally, you must provide a summary outline of the workshop (with designated time per item) and technical needs (e.g. type of room, audiovisual, minimum or maximum participants).
In order to inspire you and facilitate grouping during the conference, we are proposing a series of “thematic tracks”. These tracks are inspired by the previous symposium and the great diversity of topics researched by our community. Your proposal could cover many tracks or even none. However, to facilitate the organization of the symposium, we would like you to pick the main track that best represents your proposal. Please note that final tracks will be chosen based on the submissions received. As such, we cannot guarantee that you will be placed in your primary track.

Section criteria and scientific program
A selection committee made up of representatives from all four universities will be created to select the proposals for the conferences, posters and workshops. The organization committee will develop a quality and diversified scientific program from the applications retained.
The Symposium was conceived to provide doctoral students with an opportunity for learning and development. For this reason, we also welcome submissions that have already been submitted to another conference. However, published research (e.g. journal articles, conference annals) will not be accepted.
Cost of admission
The ticket price is set at $30, and will include food and beverages during the Symposium as well as attendance to the event.
EXTENDED Submission deadline: JANUARY 15TH 2023
