The Technology & Innovation Management Division of Academy of Management is pleased to invite applications for the 2018 TIM Research Development Workshop to be held at the AOM meeting in Chicago on August 11. 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 of a paper or dissertation to a fully-developed paper.

The workshop will be comprised of a panel discussion of how to develop quality research, as well as extensive time dedicated to round table conversations about submitted research ideas from doctoral students. Workshop facilitators will include a mix of junior, mid-career, and senior scholars whose research focus 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 TIM Dissertation Award.
