Professional Development Workshops: Call for Proposals
The Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) Division
invites you to submit creative and innovative proposals for pre-conference Professional
Development Workshops (PDWs) for the 2019 Academy of Management Annual Meeting
in Boston, Massachusetts. PDWs will take place on Friday, August 9 and Saturday,
August 10, 2019.
The OSCM Division encourages PDWs that build knowledge and
share expertise oriented towards emerging research themes and methods as well
as management practice in the OSCM area. PDW sessions are also intended for
professional development of the participants, so sessions around research and teaching
development are called for. PDWs can take different formats, such as workshops,
tutorials, debates, roundtable discussions, panel discussions, facility tours,
We highly encourage PDW proposals that link to other
divisions/interest groups with joint sponsorship as well as ones that reflect
the conference theme – Understanding the Inclusive
Organization. Workshops and panels with journal editorial board
members as well as off-site PDWs such as facility tours are encouraged. Preference
will be given to proposals that are of relevance to the Division’s membership and
represent innovative, inclusive, interactive, and developmental ideas. (Note:
Traditional presentations of research papers should be submitted to the
Scholarly Program portion of the Annual Meeting).
Proposals must be submitted online via the AOM submission
Please submit all proposals along with any joint-division “sponsorship”
suggestions using this website. The General Submission Guidelines are available
at the 2019 Annual Meeting website, https://aom.org/annualmeeting/submission/.
Deadline for Submissions: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm ET (NY Time). If you have any questions or suggestions or
would like feedback on your ideas for a PDW event, please do not hesitate to
contact Sean Handley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
