Consortium doctoral

As in previous RIRLs, during these RIRL'2020 will be held the doctoral consortium of AIRL-SCM on Wednesday, May 27th at the ISEL (Higher Institute for Logistics Studies) site in Le Havre, Quai Frissard, 76600 - Le Havre - France.

The doctoral consortium of the AIRL-SCM aims at PhD students in Logistics or Supply Chain Management wishing to present and discuss their doctoral project, regardless of their thesis year. The doctoral consortium is a place for exchanges and discussions to help doctoral students to progress in their research work in a constructive way (theoretically, methodologically and / or epistemologically). On the basis of previously submitted and evaluated communication proposals, the doctoral projects will be presented and discussed with a group of confirmed professors and researchers in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. These communication proposals can take the form of a progress report of the thesis or a communication / article project resulting from the thesis work.

The Scientific Committee of the doctoral 2020 consortium, co-chaired by Blandine Ageron (Grenoble Alpes University) and Yann Bouchery (Kedge Business School), offers PhD students the opportunity to submit a short paper of about 8 pages (2,500 words) in English or French. Two evaluators will evaluate these papers anonymously and the best proposals will be selected for a presentation during the doctoral consortium. Final papers may remain on a short format or be expanded to 8,000 words maximum. They will have to integrate the recommendations of the evaluators.
