2016 IACMR Hangzhou Conference Updates
The paper/symposium submission system was opened on September 14. By the deadline of October 16, 2015, we have received about 760 submissions, about 100 papers more than the 2014 conference. In the meantime, we have got 550 reviewers voluntarily signing up in the past months. Each paper will be double-blind reviewed by 2~3 reviewers. The reviewers will evaluate the paper for research quality, contribution to the field of Chinese management, and general interest to IACMR members. The decisions of acceptance or not will be made by the year end and the acceptance or decision letters will be sent out with the review comments in January, 2016. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to ALL who have submitted papers to the 2016 conference as well as those who have volunteered to review the papers.
