The ANZMAC 2008 organising committee are delighted to announce a special track on Macro-marketing.  This track will comprise a number of sessions to be hosted by leading macromarketers and will conclude with a panel discussion exploring the challenges to macro-marketing arising from the growing complexity of micro, meso and macro-marketing systems and the ways in which these systems impact and are impacted by environment change. We invite submissions that explore a number of broad macro-marketing themes, including markets and marketing systems in economic development, the micro – macro interface, marketing ethics and distributive justice, global policy and the environment, quality of life and measurement and modelling in macro-marketing, the latter including work on markets as complex adaptive systems and agent based modelling.   Consistent with the conference theme this special track will explore the "taken for granted" assumptions of marketing, from off-beat or alternative perspectives, which are or could be at the forefront of marketing thinking.  Submissions to the special track should be made via the online paper submission system, and will be double-blind reviewed. 

A regular feature of ANZMAC Conferences is the doctoral colloquium – this year is no different. Your hosts Professor Stan Glaser and Nicole Stegemann have arranged a program to suit students at the very beginning of their studies and for those near completion.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney and ANZMAC 2008
