                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                  FOR PHD CANDIDATES ON

28-30 APRIL 2011

Conference Aim
The Second International Conference for PHD Candidates on Economics,
Management & Tourism is an opportunity for the young scholars to share
their experience and ideas, obtained during their research work. The
development of a doctoral thesis is a challenge for anyone, a tough process,
confronting the PhD candidate to a series of questions of different nature.
With that in mind, we created a conference, dedicated to the PhD
Candidates, working in the field of economics, management and/or tourism.
They are welcomed to share ideas and works, conducted in the process of
their research study. There is no limitation for the range of topics to present
at the conference. Everyone is encouraged to write on subjects at their
choice. The only prerequisite for the latter is to be in the field of economics,
management or tourism.
