Conference Information

The theme of the 2013 conference is “Pricing and Retailing”. This conference, which builds on the rich tradition of the pricing conferences first held at Fordham University in 1998, invites research papers related to various aspects of pricing and retailing from both academic and managerial perspectives. The conference will serve as a forum for practitioners and academics to come together and share ideas. The conference co-chairs will arrange a number of both academic and practitioner sessions. This conference precedes the Summer AMA which will be held in downtown Boston from August 9-11, 2013. The conference will be hosted at Babson’s Center for Executive Education (hotel and registration information will be provided on the Babson Retail Supply Chain Institute website).
