This is a traditional PM conference with papers and presentations selected through a blind review process, offering opportunities for PM professionals, experts and academic researchers to get published and present their work to their peers. Unlike most conferences, paper presenters attend for free and can receive PDUs for PMP recertification. It’s also reasonably priced. You can see keynote presentations and papers from previous years on the conference website.

As it is each year, the 2018 symposium will be held in the Naveen Jindal School of Management on The UT Dallas campus in Richardson, Texas, USA.  The event will include multiple plenary sessions with keynote speakers, professional paper presentations by approximately 50 different speakers in breakout sessions, lunches and coffee breaks, a networking reception and door prizes.   Attendees can receive up to 15 PDUs for attending, while paper presenters can receive more. If you are a project manager or project management professional living in North Texas, you should plan to attend this world class symposium.
