The European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) and the European Marketing Academy (EMAC) in collaboration with the University of Hamburg, are organising the 32nd Colloquium for doctoral students in marketing.

The Colloquium will be held in Hamburg, Germany, on May 27-28, 2019 prior to the 48th EMAC Annual Conference.

The Colloquium provides outstanding doctoral students in marketing who want to pursue a career in academics with an opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and leading academics in the field of marketing. All topics and methodological approaches within the broad field of marketing will be considered.

The Colloquium will mostly proceed in parallel tracks based on the topical and/or methodological angle of participants' work as well as on the stage of the dissertation process. Students will discuss their work with their fellow students and with three track faculty, who are renowned experts in the field. Doctoral students in different stages of their dissertation process can apply for participation in the doctoral colloquium.

The Doctoral Colloquium will be held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere. In respect to this philosophy, participants are required to attend the entire Colloquium.

Certificate of attendance should be requested by sending an e-mail to Anne-Laure Marteaux


Candidates should submit an abstract of the (planned) doctoral research, outlining the research problem against the existing literature, discussing the methodology and showing some initial empirical results (if applicable).

Abstracts must be in English, font size 11 or 12 and no shorter than 5 pages, and may go up to 7 pages maximum for the most advanced projects. Cover/title page, references, tables, figures if any are included in the maximum number of pages mentioned here.

The name of the candidate and of the thesis advisor(s) (if already known) and contact details should appear on the first page of the abstract.

Papers will be grouped in three different tracks by the faculty (Marketing Research, Marketing Strategy, Consumer Behavior). Each track will be divided into a Beginner’s and an Intermediate/Advanced Track.

In order to allocate papers to the most appropriate track in terms of topic and advancement stage, and to better balance the number of submissions across tracks, candidates will be requested to send additional information by filling out a questionnaire.

Application Process:

In order to submit your abstract, please go to the EMAC 32th Doctoral Colloquium submission page

Before submitting, please follow the instructions on how to submit your abstract to the EMAC 32nd Doctoral Colloquium.

The submissions will be evaluated by the chair-person and co-chairs of the Doctoral Colloquium.

The admitted proposals in each track will be made available to all participants in the corresponding track to allow everyone to prepare for the discussions.

Students selected for the Beginner’s Tracks will have an hour to present their work and research ideas, whereas students selected for the Intermediate/Advanced Track will have an hour and a half.
