The panelists will have 15 minutes each to describe 2-3 critical points (of dilemmas, transition, decisions, turning points) in their career, which they can share with the students when describing parts of their career development process. The panelists will describe stories of critical incidents that they think can contribute to students understanding of the different options and decisions to be made in the career path(s).

    15:45-16:45 – Feedback on papers (roundtable format)

    This panel will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss your research in an informal setting. Regardless of whether you are a senior or a beginning researcher, this session offers you an invaluable opportunity to receive detailed feedback from scholars who are often editors or on the

    editorial boards of top journals. Each editor/facilitator will read and provide feedback on up to 2 student papers. See below for submission guidelines. Should more papers be submitted for review than editors are able to handle, papers will be slotted for review on a first-come, first-served basis.
