Young Scholars Workshop
Thursday June 27th
This workshop is designed for PhD students and faculty new to Behavioral Operations, but is open to ALL interested conference participants. It will consist of tutorials by experts in behavioral research followed by focused discussion groups for students to receive feedback on early- and mid-stage research. This year's tutorials will be given by Yan Chen (University of Michigan) and Karen Donohue (University of Minnesota).
The Research Incubator focused discussion groups will provide an opportunity for young scholars to present their original research to more experienced scholars in a small group setting. We will break-out participants based on topics, with at least two more experienced scholars assigned to each young scholar. Young scholars will have an opportunity to briefly present their "early-stage" research idea (research question and design, 10-15 minutes) or "mid-stage" research project (results and analysis, 15-20 minutes), and then receive feedback from the other group participants.
If you are a young scholar and wish to participate in the Research Incubator, please submit a 3-5 page extended abstract under the Paper Abstract Submission tab. For early-stage projects please include your research question, experimental design details, hypotheses, and intended analysis. For mid-stage projects please also describe your major results.
Participation in the incubator portion is free, but the space may be limited, and participants will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are interested in attending the tutorials and/or the research incubator, please make sure to check the box for the Young Scholars Workshop during registration. We hope to notify participants of their participation in the Young Scholars workshop by April 30th.
