British Academy of Management E-business and E-government SIG

School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London - 18/19 May 2016

The aim of the symposium

In July 2014, on behalf of the British Academy of Management Ebusiness and Egovernment SIG, we applied for SAMS funding to match committed support by 5 Business Schools. Over 18 months we organised 6 doctoral workshops, hosted by Newcastle University, the University of Sussex, Glasgow Caledonian University, the University of Bradford, Northumbria University and the University of East Anglia (Click here for details.).

This symposium closes the series, by bringing together the participants of all previous workshops in a larger 2 day event that has 3 main objectives:

  • have participants present their work and receive feedback on the current stage of their research
  • reflect on the progress achieved since their first presentation
  • offer an opportunity to reconnect with other participants and also meet new colleagues

The aim of the symposium is to provide a platform for doctoral students and early career researchers to present their work, receive constructive feedback from experienced academics, and to network with fellow research colleagues. The workshop will be run in two parallel streams. 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 research, focussing on all stages of the research process including theory development, relevant methodologies and a number of career-related topics.


There is no fee to attend the event, as this is sponsored by Queen Mary University of London. Still please note that registration is required. It may be possible to attend even if you are not presenting.


A small number of travel bursaries will be alloacated to cover the students' travel expenses on a first come first served basis. Please submit your abstract as soon as possible. To claim a bursary you will need to be a member of the BAM E-business and E-government Special Interest Group.
