The Technology & Innovation Management Division of Academy of Management is pleased to invite applications for the 2017 TIM Doctoral Research Development Workshop to be held at the AOM meeting in Atlanta on August 5. The workshop is designed as an idea-, paper-, and dissertation-development meeting for PhD students interested in technology, innovation, creativity, product development, and related topics. Students may be at any stage of a PhD program, and similarly the ideas brought to the workshop can range from initial ideas for a paper or dissertation to a fully-developed working paper.

The workshop will be comprised of a panel discussion of what makes quality research, as well as extensive time dedicated to roundtable conversations about submitted research ideas from doctoral students. Workshop facilitators will include a mix of junior, mid-career, and senior scholars whose research focuses on TIM-related areas. Many of the facilitators have served as members of the TIM leadership committee or have been finalists of different TIM Awards including the TIM Dissertation Award.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2017, from 2:15pm to 5:15pm. Participation is limited to 30 students.
