The ANZMAC Doctoral Colloquium is for students at all stages of their doctoral research. It is designed to provide doctoral students with an understanding of a collegial academic environment and assist them in shaping their current research endeavours and future academic careers. The colloquium will connect them with other students, leading academics, and mentors, engage them in interesting research and discussion, and transform their research projects and future careers. For this purpose, students will receive feedback on their research, be encouraged to share ideas, hear from leading academic researchers, and engage socially in the colloquium events.
This year, all students will be asked to provide an extended abstract (maximum 5 pages including references) about their chosen topic. Early stage students should focus on the research question they would like to address, the significance of the problem, and their proposed methodology. Later stage students should look to present (potentially early) findings into their extended abstract. Early stage students are typically those who are yet to defend their research proposal or complete a related milestone.
Students will be informed of their acceptance into the Doctoral Colloquium on the basis of the submitted extended abstract. Accepted students are then required to submit a more in-depth (3000-6000 words, excluding references) document by November 1st. This document will then be forwarded to their assigned mentors who can provide feedback on the work.
The following grants and awards are offered to participants in the Doctoral Colloquium.
ANZMAC DC Travel Awards (4 x AUD$1000)
ANZMAC DC ‘Best Paper’ Award (1 x AUD $2000)
ANZMAC DC ‘Best Paper’ for social impact
