Caucus Proposals Submission Instructions

The Caucus Committee invites proposals for caucus sessions to be held at the 79th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, August 9-13, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts, Illinois. Caucuses encompass a wide variety of topics and we encourage proposals that feature nascent ideas or ongoing themes that would be interesting to the AOM community. Innovative proposals that provide conference participants with opportunities to network, collaborate and develop new ideas that include, but are not limited to, the conference theme Understanding the Inclusive Organization” should be submitted. The conference theme invites a wide-ranging spectrum of theoretical perspectives, methods, and applications, both classic and contemporary, which investigates the many ways that interfaces separate and connect people and organizations – and considers the consequences of those separations and interconnections.

All Caucus submissions must be made via the AOMsubmissions website. The site opens for submissions toward the end of November 28, 2017 and the deadline is January 15, 2019 at 5:00 PM ET(NY Time). Caucus sessions are scheduled during the scholarly program on Monday and Tuesday. The meeting rooms are set up with a maximum of three round tables that seat 10 people each with additional chairs set on the perimeter of the room, if possible. A flipchart and markers will be available for use.

If you have any questions, please contact the Caucus Committee Chair, Grace Chun Guo at We look forward to receiving interesting and innovative caucus proposals.
