In the WOS discipline we have a great group of Higher Degree by Research candidates who are doing unique and interesting work. These candidates recently took up the opportunity to share their ideas at the Third Annual WOS HDR Symposium. Each candidate presented an aspect of their research to an audience of scholars and fellow research candidates. Many who attended commented on how impressed they were by the diversity of interesting phenomena under investigation - topics ranged from organisational to economic to environmental issues. Each candidate was clearly passionate about their research topic and grateful for the chance to test out their ideas and receive valuable feedback. The organising committee would like to thank our Chair of Discipline, Bradon Ellem, for supporting the event, and Susan McGrath Champ, the WOS HDR coordinator, for her assistance in coordinating the symposium. We are also grateful to all who presented and participated and look forward to continuing this tradition of collegiate collaboration in 2016.
