On the 17th of June, the Sunday prior to IPIC 2018, the first edition of the IPIC Doctoral Colloquium will take place. The Doctoral Colloquium is a one-day event aimed at developing and mentoring PhD students. This new platform provides an excellent opportunity for PhD students to receive in-depth feedback on their (ongoing) research (proposals) from fellow PhD students and leading academics in the field of Physical Internet.
This colloquium aims to discuss, reflect on, and further develop submitted papers or research proposals in an informal setting. You will be introduced to a variety of perspectives that can help strengthing and shaping your work as you progress towards your PhD degree, as well as to build a network of peers for your career.
The Physical Internet is a young and innovative field of research already explored by renowned academics and early-adopters from industry around the world. Engaging its community of young researchers, this colloquium aims to address the question of how to position current Physical Internet research into existing literature in order to enable publications in top-tier scientific journals.
The colloquium reaches out to PhD students conducting research in related fields – and with a variety of research backgrounds (i.e. social/behavioral sciences, environmental sciences, legal studies) – who are interested in getting connected to the different aspects of the Physical Internet and its community.
On the day of the colloquium, you will present your paper in a targeted session with ample time for feedback and discussion. Additionally, there is plenty of time available to exchange and connect with fellow PhD students and academics during the coffee breaks, a lunch, and a dinner.
We warmly invite doctoral students to submit their work, which can be at any stage of the research process (proposal, middle stages, or near completion). Contributions from all application areas and topics, directly or indirectly related to a variety of Physical Internet themes are welcomed.
*The Doctoral Colloquium is part of the fifth Physical Internet Conference and is intended for PhD students wo are also interested in attending IPIC 2018. The fee of the Doctoral Colloquium is included in the fee of the IPIC Conference. Please make sure that you apply for the Conference “IPIC 2018”.
