CALL FOR PAPERS
The 20th World Business Congress of the International Management Development Association (IMDA) devoted to “Challenges and Opportunities of Global Business in the New Millennium: Contemporary Issues and Future Trends” will be held in Poznan, Poland from July 3rd through 7th, 2011 in cooperation with Poznan University of Economics and in partnership with a number of state, provincial, and local government departments. His Excellency Mr. Waldemar Pawlak, Deputy Prime Minister and Poland’s Minister of Economy, will be the opening speaker along with a number of other important dignitaries.
Scholarly papers, panel/special session proposals, and case study exercises for presentation and subsequent publication in the refereed Congress Proceedings in book and CD form and in a number of scholarly journals are invited. Theoretical, conceptual, and empirical papers (using qualitative/historical and quantitative methodologies) are solicited.
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. In addition to sharing scholarship regarding global business issues, 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 topics. This is a great organization and a great venue. No visas are required for nationals of most countries.
Please note that the paper submission deadline is April 1st, 2011. The manuscripts should be submitted to the appropriate track co-chairs according to the Congress Call for Papers. A copy of the Call for Papers and much more information about the Congress is available on the Association’s website: http://www.imda.cc
