CALL FOR PAPERS – COME TO EXOTIC SURINAME THIS SUMMER!
The 17th Annual World Business Congress of the International Management Development Association (IMDA) will be held in Paramaribo, Suriname, South America, from June 18-22, 2008. This unique opportunity is organized and hosted jointly by IMDA, the Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands, and the FHR Lim A Po School of Management in Suriname.
Scholarly papers, panel/special session proposals, and case study exercises for presentation and possible publication in the refereed Congress proceedings are invited. Theoretical, conceptual, and empirical papers (using qualitative/historical and quantitative methodologies) are solicited. Those on the theme of "Shared Responsibilities: Management Challenges in an Environment of Increasing Global Concerns" are most desirable, although all aspects of business (including advertising, marketing and public relations) are of interest.
Manuscripts submitted must be complete papers, ready for blind review, to be considered for inclusion in the Congress proceedings. A work-in-progress may be reviewed and considered for presentation, even though not published in the Congress proceedings. A doctoral research symposium is also scheduled for Ph.D. student presenters. In addition to scholarship, the Congress is designed to offer an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world and exchange information and ideas on a variety of global business development topics. This is a great organization and a great venue to develop new contacts and friendships.
MUCH MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ONLINE AT THE IMDA WEBSITE:
Submission Deadline: April 15, 2008
