Let’s Talk About Service (LTAS) Conference
December 8-9, 2016

This conference aims to introduce young scholars to the wonderful world of service research and to guide them through their PhD journey. This initiative is unique in its kind, since our target audience is the new generation of service researchers. 

For each edition, a workshop on a particular emerging topic is selected and participants have a chance to learn something new regarding research and publication in the field of services. This year’s theme was the contemporary methodologies in service research. Two half-day workshops by true experts in their fields were offered to the participants: one on agent-based modeling and one on sentiment analysis.

This is the first time that this conference was held in the United States, with great attention from scholars and PhD students in the services field.

A total of 55 participants attended this year’s conference, including PhD students, researchers, and distinguished scholars and journal editors.
