imgThe Post-Doc Forum initiative of the International Marketing Trends Conference is a space of the conference that is open to Ph.D. academics at an early stage of their career.


The Post-Doc Forum of the International Marketing Trends Conference will take place on January 18-20 2018 in Paris (France).


The Post-Doc Forum is chaired by Professor Michael Haenlein from ESCP Europe.


The Post-Doc Forum aims to create an interactive space where young academics can meet their peers, exchange on career perspectives, develop research projects and challenge their current research work.


The Post-Doc Forum includes research workshops with short paper presentations and also all sorts of other opportunities to develop academics and research skills such as roundtables or seminars on specific topics (i.e. open access publishing, ethical practices and integrity in research…) with interactions with senior academics and marketing professionals. A poster session offer the possibility to link up with other researchers. The idea is to create an International and friendly environment where Ph.D. researchers, who have been teaching marketing and related disciplines or conducting research, can discuss new ideas and approaches that challenge the way academics and practitioners see marketing today.


  • Participants wishing to publish at the Post-Doc Forum are invited to submit a short paper (5 to 10 pages – 5,000 to max. 10,000) in English only.
  • Participants wishing to send a poster for the Poster Session are invited to refer to the Poster Session menu of the website.
  • Participants wishing to attend the Post-Doc Forum without publishing a paper or a poster can register directly in the website registration section.
