An important part of our activity is the organisation of Research Workshops in different locations around the UK.
ARCOM workshops are primarily aimed at postgraduate and doctoral students, enabling them to share their research with others. Workshops are either focused on specific subject area within the construction management context, or on more general considerations of research and the PhD process.
The workshops are usually structured to allow the presentation of doctoral students' work and permit discussion with the wider workshop attendance. They seek to support work-in-progress and therefore participation, either as presenter or attendee, is encouraged from postgraduate students at all stages of their research. Established academics and industry practitioners are also welcomed, to provide their insight and comment on current research activities.
Interactive workshops also feature in the ARCOM programme, where postgraduate and doctoral students are able to actively participate in activities to support the development of their research and academic careers. The inaugural interactive workshop was held at Manchester University in 2011, and explored the art of academic writing and publication through a mock article review process.
Attendance at workshops is free, lunch is provided, and there are a number of travel bursaries available for students who are ARCOM members and would otherwise not be able to attend.
Papers presented at the workshops will be published in the ARCOM Doctoral Workshop Proceedings Series.
