Extended Call for Papers

Leeds University Business School is pleased to announce the extended call for papers for the 2016 White Rose DTC Pathway Conference.

The Conference will be taking place at Leeds University Business School on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th July 2016 and this is a great opportunity for you to present your research amongst your peers in an academic conference environment.

The Conference will address the theme of ‘Change’ in the domains of business and management, accounting and finance, and work psychology. We are inviting proposals for paper and poster presentations that say how your research can link to the broad theme of ‘Change’. 

‘Change is when something new appears, in our research methods and collaborations, in the developments we explore in industries, organisations and communities, at work or in play.’

Year 1 researchers are strongly encouraged to produce a poster presentation and researchers in years 2 onwards an oral presentation, although it is also possible for year 1 researchers to submit an oral presentation as well a poster presentation
