Call For PDW Proposals

IACMR 8th Biennial Conference

June 13-17, 2018    Wuhan

Submission Deadline: Midnight November 25, 2017, U.S. Eastern Standard Time

IACMR’s 8th biennial meeting will take place in Wuhan, China, hosted by Wuhan University. Thanks to the great support from the IACMR members, we have received over 790 submissions of papers and symposium proposals by the deadline of mid-night Oct. 15 (US Eastern Time), which is a new record of our conferences! Thank you for your kind support!

In addition to paper and symposium presentations in the Scholarly Program, we also invite proposals for Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) that will be held on the last day of the conference, June 17, 2018.

PDWs provide a forum for researchers to explore a common topic. Their goals are educational and informational and are generally conducted in an interactive and participative format. PDWs are NOT a forum for several standard paper presentations on a common theme -- such sessions are part of the scholarly paper program. We especially welcome PDWs that are related to the conference theme of Meeting Challenges of Continuous Transformation. We are open to proposals that focus on contemporary issues relating to Chinese management research, research methods (e.g., how to conduct quantitative and qualitative research), and professional development topics (e.g., how to help junior faculty in conducting and publishing high-impact research or career development issues). Proposals for workshops dealing with teaching methods and contents are encouraged. Creative and novel proposals are particularly encouraged.

If you would like to discuss a PDW idea before submission (in advance of the submission deadline), please contact PDW Chair Wei Shen, Arizona State University, at PDW organizers must submit the proposals to the conference website  by clicking ‘Author Login’ ? ‘Submission’ and then follow the instructions. Please submit your proposal(s) by Midnight November 25, 2017, U.S. Eastern Standard Time.
