British Academy of Management: E-business and E-government Special Interest Group

The British Academy of Management, E-Business and E-Government Special Interest Group would like to invite doctoral students whose research focuses on digital platform including e-business, e-government and social media etc. to participate in an interactive workshop taking place at Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia on 12th- 13th June 2014.

The aim of the workshop

The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform for doctoral students to present their work in progress, receive constructive feedback from experienced academics, and to network with fellow research colleagues.
The workshop will be run in two parallel streams, each stream having 5 participants and 2 facilitators. Each participant will have an hour allocated to present his/her research and engage in in-depth discussion with the facilitators as well as fellow colleagues focusing on participant research related issues. In addition, keynote speeches before and after each stream will provide up-to-date perspectives on PhD research, focussing on all stages of the research process including theory development, methodology adoption and a number of career-related topics.
It is hoped that this unique workshop design will allow doctoral students to gain experience of presenting and discussing their PhD research project as well offering new insights into the entire PhD process.


Students who wish to present their work should provide an extended abstract of up to 1000 words in which the research topic is discussed and research methodology outlined as soon as possible and before the 1st of May 2014 (places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis). Abstracts should be emailed to Ewelina Lacka (
