Doctoral Colloquium


The Spanish Association of Academic and Professional Marketing (AEMARK), in collaboration with the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), is organising the IX Doctoral Colloquium for PhD students in marketing as part of the 35th AEMARK International Marketing Conference 2024.

The Doctoral Colloquium will take place on 11 September 2024. This Doctoral Colloquium offers PhD students in marketing the opportunity to share their research with well-established researchers from Spanish and foreign universities, as well as other PhD students. The main objective is to contribute to enhance the impact of research results, to improve the professional performance of doctoral students and their productivity, favouring the development of competences in the participants and their possibilities of interacting with other researchers.

Students will be able to register independently of the stage in which the elaboration of their doctoral thesis is. However, to maximise the potential use of the Doctoral Colloquium, contributions where data collection has not yet been carried out are particularly encouraged.

At the end of the Doctoral Colloquium, they will receive a certificate of attendance. It will be possible to attend a maximum of two times, although only one financial support will be accepted, at most.

Call for PhD Students

Candidates should send a summary of the thesis project, in English or Spanish, including:

  • Description of the research problem and review of the most relevant literature 
  • Key references
  • Objectives of the thesis
  • Outline or description of the proposed methodology
  • Presentation of preliminary results (if any)
  • Level of progress of the thesis
  • Description of the activities carried out, activities planned until the end of the thesis and expected delivery deadline.

The total length of the summary will be 5 pages, including: cover page, title, content, references, tables and figures. The title of the project and the name of the candidate and the director/s will appear on the cover page.

Proposals must also be accompanied by the curriculum vitae of the candidate.


The Doctoral Colloquium will be held on 11 September 2024.

The period for submitting proposals to participate in the Doctoral Colloquium begins on 25 March and ends on 3 May 2024 10 May 2024.

A committee formed by the scholars who will participate in the sessions and by the designated coordinator will evaluate the proposals.
