The Waikato Management School
20th Annual Student Research Conference

Monday, 20 August 2018, Hamilton, New Zealand

We invite postgraduate students in management and related disciplines throughout New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific to participate in this year's Waikato Management School Student Research Conference.

This annual conference is a great opportunity for postgraduate students to share the results of their research in a friendly and supportive environment, and receive constructive feedback from senior academics.

Full papers will be peer-reviewed for the Best Paper Award of $1,000, with preference given to sole-authored papers. Accepted full papers and extended abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings.

Postgraduate students includes those studying at Honours, Postgraduate Diploma, Masters or Doctoral level.

You are now invited to submit:

  • A full research paper (4000 words or less, including a 100-word abstract); OR
  • An extended research abstract (700 - 1000 words).

Your paper / abstract may cover any part of your thesis research (literature review; research questions; methodology; data collection / analysis; findings and conclusions). Or you may focus on an issue that you are currently working on.

There is a nominal registration fee of NZ$50 (plus GST) per person to cover costs and catering for the conference.

We look forward to seeing you there!
