2024 Division Scholarly Program: Call for Submissions

Division Chair: Laura Rees, Oregon State University 

The Conflict Management (CM) Division invites symposium and paper submissions for the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management. The Annual Meeting will be held 9-13 August 2024 in Chicago, IL, USA. You may send us submissions though the AOM Submission Center. Submissions open early December 2023 and close on Tuesday, 9  January 2024 at 17:00 ET (GMT-5/UTC-5).

Our Domain

The CM division welcomes submissions on a wide variety of topics including team interactions, intercultural relations, organizational diversity, labor relations, workplace disputes, community conflict, and public policy development. We focus on the nature and management of conflicts at the individual, group, organizational, institutional, inter-organizational, and societal levels; power processes including influence, coalitions, coercion, deterrence, and persuasion; bargaining and negotiation, negotiator characteristics and behaviors; collaboration and competition; third party interventions (such as facilitation, arbitration, mediation); trust, trust violations, and trust repair; workplace mistreatment (such as social undermining, bullying, abusive supervision and incivility), distributive and procedural justice, restorative justice, and dispute resolution procedures. Major topics include application of the above conceptual foci to a wide variety of contexts including interpersonal conflict, team interactions, intercultural relations, organizational diversity, labor relations, workplace disputes, community conflict, and public policy development. We invite submissions from a broad array of methodological approaches and traditions. If this describes your research, we hope to see your paper!

The Conference Theme

This year’s conference theme is "Innovating for the Future". We encourage you to make connections to the theme (if possible) when preparing your submission. This theme is ideal for those of us who study, teach, train, and write about conflict management-related topics that incorporate forward-looking perspectives. Note: if your submission does not directly address this, but you are interested in developing an exciting and thought-provoking plenary session around the theme, please contact the Program Chair (Laura Rees) with your ideas.

Reviewing for CM

Our division is not large, but we are a warm and inclusive group of people who work in and study the domain of conflict. We are good at developing great ideas! We will need your help as a reviewer to keep this tradition alive—and to help us identify our best submissions. Please sign up to review. Your reviewer assignment will be based on the keywords. We are grateful for your service to the division!

CM Division Awards

The CM Division will award: (a) Best Student Paper, (b) Best Paper: Conflict in Context, (c) Best New Directions Paper, and (d) Best Empirical or Theoretical Paper. Note that authors can nominate their own papers. For student papers, only those that are exclusively student-authored will be considered for the award.

We look forward to your contribution to our division and to seeing you in Chicago! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Program Chair, Laura Rees.
