CALLING ON CONTRIBUTION

Keeping up with the same spirit from Catania’s very successful last doctoral Seminar, we would like to extend the invitation to all doctoral students or young scholars working on topics in the range of visualizing, measuring and managing intangibles and intellectual capital from a variety of theories, practices and relevant research methods including topics on entrepreneurship and innovation in SMEs to present their thesis work at the doctoral Seminar.

The Seminar will be highly interactive and will feature sessions of professional academicians and experienced researchers in the field. The Seminar provides a unique platform for doctoral and young scholar students to present and discuss their research work-in-progress and get instant feedback from experienced researchers in the field. Not only do Doctoral students and young scholars gain the opportunity to exchange comments and views with fellow colleagues, but also they become acquainted with, and explore emerging themes, theory and methodology in visualizing, measuring and managing intangibles and intellectual capital.

We encourage all doctoral candidates at every level to apply and present their work, either in the earlier stages (proposals), work in progress (with preliminary findings) or at advanced level (with or without final results). This is because a doctoral Seminar is a place for knowledge diffusion where young scholars compare and cross-examine their research work in progress, whilst consulting with highly qualified professors/expertise and experienced researchers in a knowledge-rich environment that is both motivating and inspiring but also challenging.

Moreover, the doctoral and young scholar Seminar coincides with the 7th EIASM Interdisciplinary Workshop on Intangibles, Intellectual Capital and Extra-Financial Information which will offer students augmented insight into the prevailing arguments, theories and methodologies in the field.

All doctoral and young scholar candidates who are researching within the relevant field of study of visualizing, measuring and managing intangibles and intellectual capital, or within the topics listed below or close to the listed topics, are encouraged to apply.

The list of relevant topics includes, but is not limited to,

  • Innovative intellectual capital and intangibles management practices
  • Intellectual capital Statements and the their organizational, managerial roles
  • The relevance of Intangibles for value creation
  • Measuring and Managing intangibles
  • Intangibles and social, environmental, and sustainability reporting
  • Entrepreneurship and intellectual capital in learning organisations
  • Intellectual capital in the ‘new normal economic environment’
  • Intangibles and information technology in new media
  • Information systems and their potential for the management and measuring of intangibles
  • Role of social sciences and other disciplines in the research on intangibles
  • Continuous innovation for value creation and sustainability

POSTER PRESENTATION OF RESEARCH WORK

Monday, 26 September 2011

Unlike the traditional PowerPoint slides, in this years’ “EDEN DOCTORAL & YOUNG SCHOLARS SEMINAR”, participants are kindly requested to present their research work using posters.

A scientific poster is a large print that summarizes your research project to communicate your work at a scientific meeting.

The key is to keep your text to the minimum such that a person could read and fully understand your work in less than 10 minutes.

You should provide a brief statement of the introduction, method, subjects, procedures, results and conclusions. Your Poster should be easy on the eyes; therefore, you are encouraged to use graphics and only minimal text. Double-space all your text and keep the font big enough to be read from a reasonable distance.

Your poster should usually include the following;

  • The name of the presenter and title of the research
  • Abstract/Introduction to the subject including references to scholarly material that falls within the field of study undertaken.
  • Objectives that need to be addressed or were addressed during the course of the research
  • Identification of gaps in the literature, critical analysis and the justification of the research carried out, including theoretical and/or empirical support
  • Stages and tasks that are carried out to reach the findings, conclusions, and summary of achievements if available

You will also be provided with continuous feedback or clarifications during the seminar as both faculty and young scholars can go back and review your accessible work presented on the hanging poster.
