Doctoral students at all stages (i.e. beginning as well as nearly completed) are encouraged to participate.
This workshop will provide doctoral students an opportunity to share and develop their research ideas in a critical but supportive environment, get feedback from mentors who are senior members within the IT and Tourism research community, explore issues related to academic and research careers, and build relationships with other students, researchers and members of the community from around the world.
