The EASM Virtual PhD Student Seminar is a three-day international seminar, taking place from Monday the 13th of September to Wednesday the 15th of September 2021. The seminar aims at gathering doctoral students in the field of sport management from all over the world for mutual discussions, presentations of their research projects and feedback from senior scholars. Another important element is the creation of networks, that will hopefully encourage future joint research projects across nations and the establishment of fruitful social relations.
The application period starts on the 15th of March, 2021. First time attendees are given priority. Since a maximum of 20 PhD students can participate in the seminar and spots are assigned on a first come-first served basis, we encourage you to submit an abstract as soon as possible. Given the availability of free spots, submissions are possible until the 15th of August, 2021.
Participation in the EASM Virtual PhD Student Seminar 2021 is free of charge for students who are EASM Members at the time of the seminar (become a member). Non-EASM Members with an official PhD student status will be charged a fee of 49 EUR. Participation in the EASM Virtual PhD Student Seminar 2021 includes access to all events of the 2021 EASM Festival ofSport Management Research and Practice.
The application must include a short presentation (max. 400 words, excluding references) of the PhD project including the problem statement, research field, as well as theoretical and methodological considerations. Furthermore, applicants must indicate the name(s) of their supervisor(s), their institutional affiliation and the status of their project (e.g. at the beginning, halfway or at the end). The PhD project must have a sport management perspective. Please use the main festival’s standard scientific tracks as a yardstick whether your project falls within the sport management field, but feel free to contact Chris Horbel (firstname.lastname@example.org) in case you are unsure or would like to discuss in advance of submitting your application.
After confirmation of acceptance, participants need to register for the seminar and the EASM Festival of Sport Management Research and Practice via the official event booking system. Deadline for registration is 15th of August 2021. If no registration is made by that date, the place will be made available for students on the waiting list.
