EMAC Early Researcher Symposium (ERS)

We are pleased to invite you to the second Early-Stage Researcher Symposium (ERS), a half-day pre-conference event, organized together with the EMAC 2021 Regional Conference on 22 September 2021, hosted by Kozminski University in Warsaw, Poland.

ERS is an initiative of EMAC for early-stage researchers, including young lecturers, postdocs, PhD students as well as senior researchers who want to learn more about how to conduct research and publish. The symposium provides an opportunity to learn from experienced researchers and supports the development of professional skills for building an academic career. The ERS is an opportunity to meet like-minded people, present your research interests, exchange ideas and potentially start project collaborations and networking.

We are pleased to announce that three renowned scholars in the field of marketing are willing to share their research experiences and insights related to high quality research in marketing:

  • Michael Haenlein, ESCP Business School on “Responsible Research in Marketing: What it is and Why it is important?”
  • Matilda Dorotić, BI Norwegian Business School on "Smart technology's impact on marketing themes and research (how AI made a seismic shift in marketing)"
  • Jie Zhang, University of Maryland, on "Developing High Impact Empirical Research".

The symposium will conclude with a networking session on research collaborations, chaired by ERS, Vesna Zabkar, University of Ljubljana and Michael Haenlein, ESCP Business School.

Our guest at the session will be Elif Karaosmanoglu, EMAC VP Conferences, Corina Pelau, Bucharest University of Economic Studies, and Mirkó Gáti, Corvinus University of Budapest, for EMAC Climber Community.
