Call for Posters


What is the ICOS Dissertation Poster Session?

The ICOS Dissertation Poster Session is a biannual, informal poster session that provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their dissertation ideas and research in a fun, relaxed environment. The 2022 session will be held on Friday, April 15, from 1:30-3:00 at the Ross Tauber Colloquium (6th floor of Ross building).

Who Should Participate?

We invite participation by students at any phase in the dissertation process, including those beginning the process, those with more developed theoretical frameworks and preliminary findings, and those in the final stages of writing. Students who participated in the last poster session are welcome to present in this year's session.

Why Should You Participate?

The session provides an informal setting for students to discuss their ideas with faculty and students from a variety of disciplines. Previous sessions had a high attendance rate from both faculty and students, and participants found the immediate, face-to-face feedback particularly helpful. The session is a wonderful way to refine ideas, get suggestions for measurement and analysis, and simply talk through your dissertation with an amazing collection of people interested in and knowledgeable about organizations.

In addition, with no extra effort, participating makes you automatically eligible for consideration for the Rensis Likert Dissertation Paper Award. This prize has been established in his memory and will be awarded two and a half years from now to the author of the best paper coming out of this ICOS dissertation poster session.

Also, refreshments will be provided. There is truly nothing to lose and everything to gain by participating in this session!

How Do You Participate?

Registration for the poster session will open in Winter 2024.
