Doctoral Colloquium Call for Papers

The 2009 ANZMAC Doctoral Colloquium will be held in Melbourne (Australia) from Friday, 27 November until Sunday, 29 November 2009.

The Australian & New Zealand Marketing Academy (ANZMAC) is the leading organisation of marketing scholars in the Asia Pacific region. The ANZMAC Doctoral Colloquium immediately precedes the ANZMAC Main Conference, which will be held in Melbourne from 30 November to 2 December 2009 (and partly overlaps with the annual conference of ANZMAC's sister organisation for Management, ANZAM, 2 to 4 December at the same location). This year all events are hosted by Monash University.

The Doctoral Colloquium aims to provide doctoral students from Australia, New Zealand and overseas a forum to meet and discuss their dissertation research with leading academics in the field of marketing and also meet fellow doctoral students from the region and across the world. A wide range of topics in the marketing domain and various methodological approaches are welcome for submission. Students from different stages in their PhD program are encouraged to apply.


The doctoral colloquium program will have two main components.

Student presentations to a panel of renowned experts in the field. This will be the key activity of the colloquium. Students will present their work to a small group of experts and fellow students for in-depth discussion. Sessions will be organised based on the topical and/or methodological angle of participants' work as well as on the stage of their dissertation. This will allow receiving comprehensive comments and suggestions.

Keynote presentations and workshops by several world-class marketing academics are another highlight of this event. They will aim to enhance research skills and provide advice on career progression relevant to doctoral students.  These include presentations on “How to publish in the better journals” (Professor Harald van Heerde, Waikato University), “How to manage your PhD” (Professor Mark Uncles, UNSW), and “Relevance versus rigour in academic research” (Professor Gary Lilien, Penn State). A workshop on “Publishing from your PhD” will be facilitated by Professor Jill Sweeney (UWA). In this workshop, a selection of students will be offered a unique opportunity to discuss and advance their work in an interactive manner with three top Australian researchers.

Location, atmosphere and registration

The Doctoral Colloquium will be held in a cooperative, open and friendly atmosphere. In the spirit of this philosophy, participants are required to attend the entire colloquium. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

All sessions on Saturday and Sunday will be held in the City of Melbourne, at Monash University’s Law Chambers on Bourke Street.

The colloquium is intended to be not only a source of scientific inspiration, but also a social event. On Friday afternoon, all participants are invited to Monash University’s Caulfield campus for a welcome reception and barbecue. On Saturday evening, another social event will be organised in the city to bring together students and academics.

The registration fee of $165 will include colloquium registration and all catering throughout the program. 

Only a limited number of students can be admitted to the colloquium. To be considered, students will need to submit an application form and a research proposal no later than 31 July 2009 17 August 2009. Submissions will be internally reviewed; acceptance decisions will be announced by early September 2009. Accepted students will have to pay the registration fee by 15 October 2009 in order to reserve their place in the program.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Melbourne
