Conflict Management (CM) PDW Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions


PDW Chair: Kristin Behfar, United States Army War  


The Conflict Management (CM) Division invites proposals for Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) for the 2019 Academy of Management conference in Boston, MA. All CM PDWs will be scheduled from 8 am to 8pm on both Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10, 2019.


PDWs offer opportunities to explore cutting edge ideas, share expertise and best practices, and to engage in thought-provoking discussions. PDW sessions can address any issue of concern to CM scholars and/or practitioners, and can be delivered in a variety of formats (e.g., roundtables, research incubatory, town hall meetings, debates, among others). Your proposed PDW should provide, in both its content and its delivery, an intellectually stimulating experience.


We encourage (but do not require) you to submit proposals that can be co-sponsored with other divisions and that address the conference theme, Understanding the Inclusive Organization.  More information on the conference theme can be found at the Academy of Management annual meeting website:


Please be sure to follow the Academy of Management's guidelines for submissions. You can submit your proposal via the AOM submission system at The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 5pm ET (NY Time). We look forward to receiving your proposals!


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kristin Behfar (PDW Chair) at
