The "Strategy as Practice" Paper Development Workshop is a pre-Colloquium activity that aims to help early-career academics develop their research ideas and papers towards publishable articles in close interaction with leading scholars in the field. The workshop is targeted primarily to later-stage PhD students and post-docs who wish to improve their capabilities in doing high quality research and getting their work published in top-tier journals.

In this workshop, papers will be briefly presented and thoroughly discussed in Round Table sessions with leading scholars in the field.
