2020 IACMR Biennial Conference CALL FOR PDW PROPOSALS

June 17-21, 2020   Xi’an

Submission Deadline: Midnight November 20, 2019, U.S. Eastern Standard Time

The 9th IACMR biennial meeting will take place in Xi’an, China, next June, hosted by Peking University and Xi’an Jiaotong University. Thanks to the great support of IACMR members, we have received over 860 submissions of papers and symposium proposals by the deadline of mid-night Oct. 16 (US Eastern Time), which is a new record of our conferences!

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 21, 2020.

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 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, Professor Yi Tang, The Hong Kong University, at PDW organizers must submit the proposals to the PDW track of the conference system. Alternatively, you may click ‘Profile Home‘ after logging into your account, and then ‘PDW Submissions‘ among a few options on the page and follow the submission instructions. The submission deadline is Midnight November 20, 2019, U.S. Eastern Standard Time.

For details of submission procedures and other information, please refer to the Call for Submissions. For questions about PDW proposals, please contact Professor Yi Tang, The Hong Kong University, at Questions about the IACMR and the 2020 Conference may be directed to
