Summer School


Dr. Farook Hamzeh, American University of Beirut, Lebanon

Dr. Min Liu, North Carolina State University, USA


Over the years IGLC has provided doctoral students around the world a special opportunity to present their research and get feedback from a panel of experts in a very open, yet challenging forum. The IGLC 2018 PhD summer school will continue to provide this facility.

The summer school is open to 20 students from around the world to present their work and receive feedback. The event will offer the students an opportunity to

  1. get detailed feedback on their research from academics and practitioners
  2. network with likeminded researchers working on similar topics
  3. find potential new themes for future research

The Summer School is a long running tradition of the IGLC and one that students have come to appreciate highly as it provides critical yet constructive feedback that helps sharpen their research. Help will be at hand for those who would like to fine-tune their research methods or refine their problem statement. In addition to those students presenting their work, there will also be an opportunity for eligible students to attend the event and be part of the discussions, either as early stage researchers or experienced ones who have already been to a Summer School.

All postgraduate students are eligible to apply, either to present their work or to attend the summer school as observers. In order to be accepted, all students (presenters and observers) should apply using the application form specified below. The number of places will be limited and applicants will be shortlisted by the expert panel.


Applications should be sent latest by 31st of March, 2018, directly to Summer School Deans as per details given in Application Form.

The Summer School Deans will select the students and notify them, providing instructions for presentation. For students selected to present their work, the summer school is free-of-charge (including shared accommodation and food in the hostels of IIT Madras at Chennai). Approved observers will be asked to pay a minimal registration fee to cover direct costs including learning materials, refreshments and meals. All students are expected to make their own arrangements for travel costs, unless IGLC 2018 organisers are able to find sponsors ready to bear these costs.
