  5. 5. What You Need to Do and Why You should attend the annual conference if you want an academic career:  You will get to know the right people  You will get to know them before you start looking for a job  You will learn a lot about your particular division  You will find others to do research with  You’ll find some life-long friends You should start attending in the first year of your PhD You can get there by:  Getting a research paper accepted  Proposing a PDW that is accepted  Applying for your division’s Doctoral or Junior Faculty Workshop  Volunteering to be a reviewer The Academy’s submission system opens around November and closes around January 10 Some divisions have very low acceptance rates and lots of members! Think about sending your paper to a small division
  6. 6. So … I’ve Been Accepted! What now? As soon as the accommodation website for the annual conference is open, log on and find a student rate room Start shopping for an airline ticket Sign up for Placement (if looking for a job) You’ll have to wait until early May before you can start planning which sessions you’ll be attending Plan your PDW and paper presentation schedule carefully  Be strategic and attend sessions with:  Presenters whose work you follow/like  Presenters you want to meet  A large concentration of major names in an area you are interested in  As above, but that are scheduled early in the morning or are in the PDW program (keeps the numbers down) Plan to attend plenty of social events  Again, be strategic:  Attend your division’s welcome drinks, main social and journal best paper session (e.g. Journal of Operations Management)  Do the same for other divisions you are interested in  And then if you still need another drink or more free food …
