PhD students are invited to submit abstracts for poster or paper presentation during the Doctoral Colloquium. All submissions for the Doctoral Colloquium will be reviewed based on abstract and all students should prepare posters and PowerPoints for presentation. In various formats, during the colloquium, all students will get a chance to present and discuss their work with a panel of experienced place branding researchers and their peers. Subsequently, all posters will be on display during the main conference. In addition, PhD students can also submit their full papers (usually with their supervisors) for presentation at the main conference if they wish.
