The PhD Colloquium is one of the main events organized in conjunction with 19th International Conference on Business Management of the Faculty of Management Studies and Commerce, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, for PhD students from all over the world who are in the early phases of their dissertation work. The event will be conducted in a hybrid mode on 09th December 2022 at the university premises.

The goal of the PhD Colloquium is to provide a scholarly platform to help PhD students with their theses/dissertations and research plans by providing feedback and general advice in a constructive atmosphere. Students will present and discuss their research in the context of a well-known and established international conference, in a supportive atmosphere with other doctoral students and an international panel of established researchers. Accordingly, the PhD Colloquium will provide the opportunity to meet and network with the experts in different research fields in business management while incentivizing the junior academics in pursuing their higher doctoral studies.

The colloquium accepts research papers from both local and international PhD students and a rigorous review will be conducted for all the papers submitted where the team of reviewers will consist of experts from each field of study. There will be a discussant to conduct an in-depth discourse at the presentation sessions of the accepted papers while the paper presentations will be also open for comments/suggestions of the participants of the colloquium.
