Download the ASAC 2022 Call for Posters
Canada hosts a vibrant academic community that focuses on management. Traditionally, academic conferences have focused on Faculty and PhD students, and have provided limited opportunity for Master’s students to engage with this community. This year the Rowe School of Business (RSB) is hosting ASAC and as part of our commitment to introduce our Master’s students in our new graduate program into this community, we are inviting all Master’s students to submit their research for a poster session.
We are envisioning an event that creates a team spirit and ensures appropriate feedback and guidance on their thesis or another project that they are working with a supervisor or faculty member. We invite you to submit work that either outlines a complete project or introduces a brand-new research idea. Research at all stages will be considered for this poster event.
Why should you submit?
We can think of four reasons:
• This will let you present your work to a research community that includes universities from
across the country.
• This will help you to receive constructive yet friendly feedback from ASAC community members.
Presenting your poster allows you to have the conference presentation experience.
• You will gain valuable professional experience discussing your research and networking with
faculty members and (potentially) future colleagues. This will be an invaluable experience,
especially if you plan to apply for a PhD program.
• You will learn about other students’ research programs, an opportunity masters students don’t
If none of the above reasons are good enough, the best reason may be travelling to Halifax so that you can present your work within a friendly academic community. In doing so you will be able to have fun with fellow students and researchers and get to know members of the academic community.
• You must be a masters level graduate student enrolled in any academic institution and be willing to attend and present your work during the Master’s Students Poster Session in ASAC 2022.
• While it is not required, it is strongly recommended to have a faculty member be listed as you co-author. This will ensure that your work is approved by your academic mentor at your own university.
You need to submit an extended abstract (between 750-1000 words) to be considered for the poster presentation. Your submission will be reviewed by the MSc poster session division. The poster session for Master’s students will be held during the ASAC Graduate Students Consortium.
Submission must be in a Microsoft Word file, and you are asked to email your submission to MScASAC@dal.ca. Please note submissions to the MSc poster session cannot be accepted via the ASAC portal and must be emailed to this email address.
Submission deadline: Friday, March 4, 2022 at midnight.
ASAC retains the right to remove any paper from the review process or the conference program
should any of the above guidelines or policies be violated.

feedback is possible and relevant.
