2013 INGRoup Doctoral Consortium

The inaugural event for the Research Coordination Network is a doctoral consortium held in conjunction with the Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research (INGRoup) annual conference in Atlanta, GA. The consortium was held on July 10, 2013 at the College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology. At this doctoral consortium, 10 faculty members joined 22 participating PhD students for a day-long event featuring panel discussions, presentations, networking, and mentoring on student papers. Session titles included: "Career paths in group and teams research", "What it means to be interdisciplinary", "Publishing high impact group and team research", and "Computational social science-New ways to study groups and teams." This doctoral consortium provided an outstanding opportunity for PhD students to explore and develop their research skills and ideas under the guidance of a panel of distinguished faculty members.
