PHISO Exploratory Workshop (PEW)

By 2020, PHISO will have two regular activities, the biennial workshop and biennial conference. The flow of activities will look like this:

  • 2020 Biennial 2-day PHISO Exploratory Workshop (PEW)
  • 2021 Biennial 2-day PHISO International Conference (PIC)
  • 2022 PEW
  • 2023 PIC
  • 2024 PEW
  • 2025 PIC
  • onwards

PEW is focused on the presentations of completed research papers by scholars and advanced students aimed for publications, particularly for PHISO flagship academic journal and book series. No parallel, plenary or keynote sessions, only author’s presentation being discussed by all workshop participants at a given time and in one workshop room. Thus, papers have to be submitted one month ahead of the event to give time for participants to read each others’ works. Participants must follow the “instructions for authors” before submitting their manuscripts.

PIC is the conventional gathering of people, from undergraduate students, academics to practitioners, who wanted to network and share their ideas, thoughts and initial research works that are not yet completed. Some may also present completed papers or research findings. The idea is to help novice scholars, early career academics, and students elicit helpful feedback and constructive criticism through paper presentations, academic panels, roundtable discussions, plenary and parallel sessions. PIC’s intent is to nurture a collegial environment that foster cooperation and research collaborations. It abhors gatekeeping of scholarship and university/school turfing by means of so-called “prestige,” “hierarchy,” and “seniority.”
