IRSSM 11 Research Workshop details
Services dominate the GDP of all nations in the world today. However, indigenous service research is still a developing field in the majority of nations. Numerous research opportunities are presented by the service sector's expanding role in our daily lives. The purpose of the International Research Symposium in Service Management (IRSSM) is to nurture the research skills of the following generation of educators, researchers, and professionals. The Research Workshop, which will take place on June 13th, is one of the symposium's most significant and valuable components. The goal of this research workshop is to provide young researchers with the knowledge and methods they need to enhance the quality of their research and scholarly output. It is a unique mentoring platform and environment. You will have the chance to network with highly esteemed senior professors (mentors) from some of the top universities in the world by attending the IRSSM symposium and the research workshop. On the first day of the Symposium, these mentors lead a practical research workshop; and, throughout the following days of the Symposium, they will offer you insightful feedback and crucial pointers for enhancing your research. Many young researchers who attended the symposiums have found great value in this special mentoring process, which has also contributed to the success of IRSSM Symposiums over the past ten years. The Symposium is essential if you are new to research. It will assist you in developing the appropriate connections and networks, as well as guide you to improve your research and publication skills.
