They enable us to be more efficient, to access goods and services faster than ever before, and to share information and experiences across the globe. And yet, they are not unproblematic.  Recently, there have been highly publicized corporate scandals, Wall Street corruption, and failures of government to meet the needs of its citizens, with a resulting rise in public distrust and questioning of organizations’ reasons for being.  We often take as given that an organization’s purpose to produce economic value; and, although economic value can often add to social value, sometimes it does not.

Vice President & Program Chair  

In just a few months, we will be gathering in Anaheim for the 2016 Meetings of the Academy of Management. We invite you to help us develop an intellectually vibrant program. We look forward to receiving your submission. To ensure that your proposal is submitted correctly and that it will be reviewed for inclusion in the program, please carefully read through all of the guidelines and instructions in the pages that follow. Our advice is to submit early. The submission website is scheduled to open in early November and the submission deadline is January 12. By submitting early, you will create a window that will allow for the possible identification and resolution of any technical issues before the final deadline.

If you wait until the last minute, you are more vulnerable to errors, such as technical connectivity issues, omission of a participant, and failure to finalize your submission. Divisional Program and PDW Chairs have a short period of time to check-in and assign for review all of the submissions before making final decisions. Any submission that is not finalized or does not follow all the proper guidelines (specified on the following pages) will automatically NOT be reviewed.  We don't want this to happen to your work.  So please submit early and allow time for any necessary corrections.
