To enhance the collegiality of the tutorial, participants are expected to attend the entire event. In addition, a student whose paper is accepted for the Doctoral Tutorial is also expected to serve as a discussant for one of the other papers. All participants will receive a certificate of participation. There will be a group supper organised for participants of the EFA Doctoral Tutorial the evening before the event (i.e., Tuesday, August 14, 2012) – details to follow closer to the date.
