The 8th IPMA Research Conference – now ONLINE! 2nd Call for Papers – NEW dates!

Due to the restrictions following the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to hold the 8th IPMA Research Conference virtually. On the first and second day, the participants can exchange their views on self-organization in projects in a self-organized way. On the online platform “Slack” they can present the results of the conference. We call this the “IPMA Hackdays”. There are no limits to creativity. Highlights of the exchange will be presented at the end of the research conference and will later be made available on the IPMA website.
Due to the different time zones, we will start the “IPMA Hackdays” on September 9th at 10 am CET. From then on, participants can work on the topics around the clock until the end of the research conference and it is even possible to continue the work beyond.
On September 11th, a day full of presentations on the topic will follow. Keynotes will provide insights into practice, paper presentations will illustrate research findings and case studies, a panel discussion will take a critical look at the topic, and after presenting the highlights of the “IPMA Hackdays”, the 8th IPMA Research Conference will conclude in the late afternoon.

Date: 9.09.2020
