Research in Action – Accelerating knowledge creation in management
We would like to draw your attention to the imminent deadline for the submission of topics and symposia. The deadline for submission is 3 July 2017. The EURAM 2018 Conference will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland, on 20, 21, 22 and 23 June.
Our conference theme is “Research in Action.” The aim is to accelerate knowledge creation in management. It is a call for action. The idea is to empower researchers to explore the state of research and experiment with the aim of creating new insights. It is not just a question of methodology it is a quest for relevance in different disciplines of management. The importance of impactful research is an effort to assist people to use the output of research to change behaviour. The relevance of such research creates a purposeful dialogue between academia and business and can benefit society at large. In the words of Snorri Sturluson (1230): Little can be known without trying – Fátt veit fyrr en reynt er.
We are pleased to invite you to collaborate in the programme building by proposing topics for discussion and symposia for the 18th EURAM Annual Conference. Do not hesitate to contact the relevant Special Interest Groups (SIGs) chairs by email. Information about the SIGs can be found here.
Call for Topics
Topics are considered relevant research questions, themes, issues, problems or aspects to be included in the general programme of the conference (i.e. configuring the parallel sessions of the different Strategic Interest Groups [SIGs] of EURAM).
Please use the topic proposal template to submit your proposal.
Call for Symposia
Symposia are discrete sessions around a specific topic or problem that:
a) Engage a group of panellists in a formal interactive discussion,
b) Encourage lively discussion and presentation of alternative views,
c) Attract the interest of a sufficient number of scholars,
d) Engage with issues that cut across existing SIGs, and
e) Can be accomplished in a 90min window.
Please use the symposium proposal template to submit your proposal.
We very much look forward to welcoming you in Reykjavik!
