Become an engaged, proactive member of your professional community and help contextualize research to better serve practicing managers and forecast their needs.
What can you submit?
Paper Sessions are the heart of scholarship and offer the most significant contributions to the Annual Meeting.
Speakers discuss a common topic or theme that brings new insights to the subject. Symposia (either Panel Symposia and Presenter Symposia) can be submitted to up to three Divisions and Interest groups (DIGs).
Caucuses encompass a wide variety of topics, and we encourage proposals that feature nascent ideas or ongoing themes that would be interesting to the entire AOM community.
Professional Development Workshops include a wide variety of session formats, such as doctoral and junior faculty consortia, as well as learning experiences led by experts in the topic with intended takeaways for the participants.
Submitting a Proposal
