Pre-conference day

Toward Green, Inclusive, and Digital Growth



Dear PhD students!

We cordially invite you to join the MIC 2023 pre-conference day. It is designed as a one-day event for PhD students at any stage of their doctoral studies. We aim to provide an inclusive environment for sharing questions, ideas and providing feedback on some key issues that arise in any doctoral study process.

MIC 2023 pre-conference day will provide PhD candidates with the opportunity to

  • discuss the research problem,
  • discuss methodological challenges,
  • give constructive feedback on another participant’s work,
  • receive feedback on their own work,
  • meet experienced researchers,
  • network with colleagues.

The pre-conference day will include presentations of your own research with time for an in-depth discussion with experienced researchers as well as workshops on publishing and research design. The preliminary schedule will be available soon.

All pre-conference participants are warmly invited to participate in MIC main conference as well.
