SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS & FULL PAPERS EXTENDED TO

JANUARY 31, 2022

As the world of business still struggles through the COVID-19 pandemic, business and management theories and practices are being reimagined and reconfigured to address the pandemic’s seismic footprint on work. During the last couple of years many businesses were challenged by the COVID-19 related restrictions, supply chains have been disrupted, hospitality and retail interface with customers were transfixed, both K-12 and higher education sectors changed immensely and adopted virtual and hybrid modes of delivery at a speed previously unthinkable, and many companies revisited distance working options and made it available to their employees.
At such unchartered and evolving times, it is among the callings of management theory and practice to lead, shape, and advocate innovation, efficiency, and performance as drivers of success in all forms and sizes of organizations, in all sectors, and in all countries.  Many experts predict the changes experienced in these pandemic years will transform the way we live and work permanently. Moreover, there is conjecture that such changes will both recur and do so ever more rapidly going forward.
As organizations try to adapt and respond to technological, demographic, and market transformations, managers, employees, and stakeholders increasingly are called upon to envision “new normal” that find opportunity in such ever-faster and ever-larger disruptions. Managers in particular will be relied on to unleash and corral the agility, imagination, ambidexterity, inclusivity, and sustainability that conceiving and implementing such pathways entails.  
Whatever shape the new normal takes, business as usual has been affected in lasting ways. Stakeholder and market expectations and needs are uncertain, novel, complex, and unfolding. Reflecting this the creation, implementation, analysis, and application of management thinking to these contemporary upended realities remain territory important for management scholars and practitioners to navigate and chart.
Best management practice recognizes and champions that with change and challenge come opportunity. SAM’s 77th Anniversary International Business Conference theme –– Advancing Management in the Rapidly Changing World – is dedicated to exploring and contributing findings and recommendations to this central and current aspect of management practice and education. Academic, practitioner, and student researchers are invited to present business insights at this 2022 Conference, and so collaborate in advancing the management opportunity of shaping new normal that build even better futures.

SUBMISSION TYPES

The Society for Advancement of Management International Business Conference (SAM-IBC) welcomes a diverse range of research methods and is open to papers, presentations, posters, workshops, symposiums, and panels that rely on statistical inference, qualitative data, verbal theory, computational models, mathematical models, literature review, and case studies. SAM-IBC invites you to submit any of the following types of your academic work to the conference:

Type 1: Scholarly Research

Presentations in this submission type will focus on one of the following three areas of scholarship:

Basic or discovery scholarship that generates and communicates new knowledge and understanding and/or development of new methods. Intellectual contributions in this category are normally intended to impact the theory, knowledge, and/or practice of business.

Applied or integration/application scholarship that synthesizes new understandings or interpretations of knowledge or technology; develops new technologies, processes, tools, or uses; and/or refines, develops, or advances new methods based on existing knowledge. Intellectual contributions in this category are normally intended to impact the practice of business.

Teaching and learning scholarship that develops and advances new understandings, insights, and teaching content and methods that impact learning behavior. Intellectual contributions in this category are normally intended to impact the teaching of business (adopted from the AACSB 2013 Accreditation Standards).

Type 2: Student Research

This submission type is for research presentations of student work both graduate and undergraduate that focus on one of the following three areas of scholarship:

Basic or discovery scholarship that generates and communicates new knowledge and understanding and/or development of new methods. Intellectual contributions in this category are normally intended to impact the theory, knowledge, and/or practice of business.

Applied or Integration/application scholarship that synthesizes new understandings or interpretations of knowledge or technology; develops new technologies, processes, tools, or uses; and/or refines, develops, or advances new methods based on existing knowledge.

* Joint Faculty and Student research should be directed to the Faculty/Student Research track.

Type 3: Faculty/Student Research

This submission type is for presentations that are the joint product of Faculty and Student research. The majority or all of the presentation will be done by the student. Research in this track will focus on the same scholarship areas as in the Scholarly Research track.

Type 4: Practitioner Research and Presentations

Two options are available for practitioners. The first option in this submission type is for presentations that provide a real-world perspective on management issues within organizations; these presentations seek to provide members of SAM a view of these management issues from the practitioner perspective. The second option in this submission type is for the presentation of original case studies that focus on contemporary, real-world management issues and provide recommendations for management practice and/or education.

Type 5: Symposium, Workshop, and Panels

This submission type is for those who would like to present a workshop in either panel or presentation format. These sessions will relate to the Conference theme, and enhance positive Conference impact and meaningful take-aways for Conference attendees. When possible, workshops and panels are provided exclusive programming time separate from other presentations and are encouraged to envision participation from various disciplines and organizations.
