MIS Research Workshop: Spring 2015

The MIS group hosts a number of workshops during the academic year.  We invite speakers internal as well as external to Purdue to present on MIS topics of particular interest to them.  The seminar provides a forum for discussion on that topic among PhD students, faculty, and other interested parties.

The presenter typically provides a working paper at least a week in advance, which is posted online so that it is available for attendees prior to the workshop.  The workshop usually begins with a presentation of the work by the speaker, followed by a lively discussion.  Doctoral students are asked to prepare three questions in advance.  Workshops are typically held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  (unless otherwise noted).

Hossein Ghasemkhani is the current workshop coordinator.  If you have any questions regarding the seminar, please contact him at (
