Doctoral consortium co-chairs:

The Doctoral Consortium which will take place on Wednesday 16th November 2022. There is no extra
fee to participate in the symposium but you are required to register for the conference.

The MENACIS2022 Doctoral Symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present
and develop their research in an interdisciplinary workshop, facilitated by a panel of senior

  • Suprateek Sarker, Rolls-Royce Commonwealth Commerce Professor at the McIntire School of Commerce, University of Virginia
  • Ilias Pappas, University of Agder, Norway
  • Malak Baslyman, KFUPM, Saudi Arabia
  • Eman Alyami, Saudi Electronic University, Saudi Arabia
  • Jihan Aayale, ISCAE, Morocco

The Doctoral Consortium will be action-focused, with an emphasis on conceptualisation, analysis,
and visualisation skills and techniques rather than standard presentations. We invite students who
feel this kind of experience will serve to progress their dissertation journey to apply for this unique
opportunity to share and develop their work with students and staff.

Submissions should not exceed 4 pages and should contain the following information;
(i) stage of Ph.D.
(ii) statement of research problem/objective
(iii) summary of closely related prior research
(iv) research method used or planned
(v) expected contributions of work.
