10 November 2014 – College Park, Md. USA – The University of Maryland’s Project Management Center for Excellence is still accepting paper submissions for its second annual Project Management Symposium, taking place June 8-9, 2015 on the University of Maryland (UMD) campus in College Park, Md. Due to many requests for more time, their call for papers has been extended to December 1, 2014. Don’t miss this opportunity to present a paper at an important project management conference near Washington, DC.

141110-pmwj28-UM-IMAGEPaper topics should apply to one of four themes: people in projects, large project management, case studies and lessons learned, or theory and practice. Example topics include leadership, federal project management, public-private partnerships, risk management, procurement, disaster management, project finance, and sustainability. All paper abstracts must be submitted by Monday, December 1, 2014.

Supporting the theme, “Academically Rigorous and Practically Applied,” this two-day symposium will bring together project managers from the Baltimore-Washington metro area and abroad for the capital region’s premier academic project management symposium. Their direct link for paper submissions will remain live until 11:59 p.m. Monday, December 1.

The inaugural symposium in 2014 drew a capacity crowd, as more than 55 speakers tackled topics ranging from disaster management and human factors to agile project management and performance measurement. In 2015, symposium attendees will once again have the option to apply event sessions towards earning professional development units (PDUs) for maintaining their Project Management Institute (PMI) credential.
