The ICODO Doctoral Workshop is designed to enable doctoral students working on the broader issues around digital transformation and digital strategies. The objective of the workshop will be to support doctoral students as they write their dissertations and papers for publishing to shape their research careers. The doctoral students from India and abroad can apply to be a part of this annual workshop. They will have opportunities to discuss their work in small groups with distinguished faculty and peers, to meet and interact within the scholarly network, and to enhance their scholarship, teaching, and overall development.

The workshop will be open to all full-time Ph.D. students of recognized universities. In the future, it can also be opened to those doing their doctoral studies in a part-time mode.

We invite doctoral students working on various topics on the interface of digital technologies and business management to apply for this workshop. Some of the topics that we hope to receive applications from are as follows:

  1. Governance, Strategy, and Value of IS
