I am excited to announce that the Call for Submissions for the Academy of Management Africa Conference, January 7-10, 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa, is now available. We are looking for papers and symposia that pertain to one of the conference track themes listed below.
Four conference track themes frame the conference experience:
· Navigating Institutions: Business, Government, and Civil Society
· Emerging Market Firms and MNCs: Characteristics and Global Aspirations
· Base of the Pyramid: Emerging Market Consumers, Workers, and Managers
· Cultural Diversity and Transformational Societies
This first international conference of the Academy of Management will bring Africa’s unique capabilities and needs to the attention of the world’s organization and management scholars and at the same time, provide an opportunity for interested colleagues to collaborate and work on the many interesting theoretical and practical problems presented in Africa.
All submissions must be made via the Academy’s submission system which is scheduled to open on February 15, 2012. The deadline for all program submissions is May 15, 2012 at 5:00 PM ET (New York time).
Submitters are advised to carefully review the submission guidelines and procedures, posted on the AOM Africa Conference website. Submissions that do not follow the guidelines or are incomplete will not be reviewed. Decisions about submissions will be announced on or before July 1, 2012.
