The doctoral student corner is a dedicated space for doctoral students attending the conference to orient to the AMCIS experience and to connect with others in the field. This space will be available throughout the conference as a place for doctoral students to network and relax between conference events. We encourage doctoral students of all levels to register for this free ancillary event when registering for AMCIS 2018.
If you have already registered for the conference, but forgot to include the Doctoral Corner ancillary event, you are still welcome to participate. Please drop Jessica Pye an email with your interest so we can include you on any pre-conference emails.
Be sure to stop by the corner once you’re in New Orleans!
All students are free to relax in the designated doctoral corner space through-out the conference. There are also three activities students may participate in:
- Networking events with faculty and fellow students during conference refreshment breaks
- Trivia Bingo and Scavenger Hunt with Prizes
Students interested in the “buddy-system” program should respond to a survey request emailed to registered students a week or two before the conference starts. Each survey responder will be assigned two student buddies in advance. These buddy groups, made up of fellow doctoral students, are designed to help seed additional networking connections and provide new associates to get to know during conference receptions and meals.
