Dear fellow SIMians,
We would like to invite you to the first SIM Sandbox Workshop on November 5, 2021. This is a new (hopefully) quarterly workshop series hosted by your fellow SIMians, Kevin Chuah, Bram van der Kroft, and David Skandera. It marries the experience of attending a SIM consortium with that of attending a SIM PDW. Attendees will be able to receive feedback on a research paper that is currently under development and will be asked to review one other attendee's paper. While all SIMians are welcome to attend, this event is designed in particular for SIM scholars in the early stages of their careers (i.e., current PhD students and recent graduates).
Our goals for this SIM Sandbox Workshop are threefold. We hope to (1) offer emerging SIM scholars an opportunity to connect with each other and develop long-lasting relationships; (2) assist in developing a community of SIM thought leaders by taking advantage of the range of expertise in the SIM division; and (3) offer emerging SIM scholars an opportunity to sharpen important skills (e.g., reviewing, presenting) and improve their papers prior to the submission deadline for the upcoming AOM Annual Meeting.
If you are interested in joining the first SIM Sandbox Workshop, you can sign up at the link below (just click on the link and add your information to the Google Sheets document). After signing up, please submit a research paper you would like to receive feedback on and discuss at the event by October 20, 2021 to email@example.com.
