EAA column

Insights from young scholars

The EAA newsletter hosts perspectives, stories, and interviews with young EAA scholars. This time we host Morana Fuduric, assistant professor from University of Zagreb and Visiting scholar at Northwestern University.

Being a young scholar, attending conferences is one of the most important aspects of your professional and personal development. One of the main aspects that are especially appealing to young scholars are good networking opportunities and the possibility to share your work with scholars from all over the world. You are able to form new connections that lead to potential new collaborations and sometimes even new career prospects. It is a chance to discover what other people in the field are up to and be inspired by their work. Even more than that, it is a chance to “check your instincts” and see whether the research questions you are passionate about are of interest and relevance to the academic community and practitioners. Finally, one great advantage of conferences is that it allows you to “reset” and spend a couple of days thinking intensely (and quite strategically) about your research and the future directions you want to take.

As it turns out, attending ICORIA gives you exactly that, and more. My first encounter with ICORIA was in 2016 when I presented a paper with Ed Malthouse and Vijay Viswanathan in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and the second this year in Valencia, Spain (oddly enough, both were held during soccer championships). I had never been to a specialized conference before, and was not sure what to expect. One of the first things I have realized is that everyone attending ICORIA seemed to know each other, and their relationship seemed to span the classic professional domain. It felt very familial.

My second time at ICORIA only strengthened that feeling – everyone I have met was open to discussions about advertising-related topics, and more importantly – inherently curious about new methods and developments in the field. Upon hearing about my work and future projects, they immediately thought about introducing me to some of their colleagues that might offer additional inputs and advice - which was greatly appreciated on my end.

Finally, I have to stress that the members of the organizing committees for ICORIA 2016 and 2018 have found the perfect balance between work and fun, from the networking games at the conference opening ceremony and engagement activities including a big white Photo Frame and a Truth and Lies advertising bazaar in Ljubljana to the fabulous all-white Gala Dinner in Valencia. Mind you - All the best discussions, conversations and collaborations naturally occur during the informal lunches, coffee breaks and gatherings. Experience that and you will understand why I will be attending to ICORIA in Krems, Austria next year.
