2021 Division Scholarly Program: Call for Submissions
The Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) Division encourages interdisciplinary scholarship and dialogue on the management of innovation and technological change from a variety of perspectives including behavioral, cognitive, sociological, and economic approaches.

The theme of this year's meeting is “Bringing the Manager Back in Management”, emphasizing management in Technology and Innovation Management.  TIM welcomes paper and symposium submissions related to managers and the management of technology and other new and emerging topics, as well as established topics that have previously been represented in the TIM program. In the past, major topics areas have included Adaptation and Change, Artificial Intelligence, Industry Emergence, Geography of Innovation, Innovation & Technology Policy,  Innovation Strategy, Intellectual Property, Knowledge Management, Micro-foundations of Invention & Innovation, New Product Development, Open Innovation, Market Emergence, Organizational Emergence, Technology Platforms and Ecosystems, and Technology Entrepreneurship.

Because TIM is cross-disciplinary, papers or symposia that relate to the domains of other divisions are encouraged and may become candidates for cross-divisional sessions.  As participants in our academic field come from a wide range of disciplines and draw from a rich array of theoretical and empirical research paradigms, we enter this complex domain in the spirit of dialogue and debate, seeking deeper understanding. Our goal is to present paper sessions and symposia that are as diverse, creative and engaging as our membership.

The deadline for submissions is 12 January 2021 at 5:00 PM ET (NY Time).  If you submit a paper, we also expect you to sign up to review.  Remember that you need to renew your reviewer registration every year.

Awards: TIM offers a number of awards:

Best Paper Award.  Award for the paper with the most significant contribution to TIM in the refereed scholarly program.

Best Student Paper Award. Award for the best student paper in the refereed scholarly program.  To be eligible for the best student paper award, the student must be the lead author or sole author, and this should be clearly indicated on the title page of the paper. Papers considered for the Best Student Paper Award can also be considered for the TIM Division Best Paper Award.

Best Reviewer Awards. Awards for reviewers who provide reviews that are exceptionally thorough, insightful, and helpful.
