CAUCUS (CAU) Call for Submissions

2024 Caucus Program: Call for Submissions

PDW Chair: Michal Wilczewski, University of Economics and Human Sciences, Warsaw

The Caucus Committee invites proposals for caucus sessions to be held at the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM 2024) held in person 9–13 August 2024 in Chicago, IL, USA. Caucus sessions will be held in-person from Sunday-Tuesday, 11-13 August 2024. 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 “Innovating for the Future” should be submitted. 

What is a Caucus? 

The premise of a caucus is primarily to provide an opportunity for scholars to innovate, share, and discuss emergent ideas that are still in the incubatory stage. Caucuses are designed to provide a convenient, informal way for AOM members with shared interests to find one another and to develop a sense of community within the larger AOM structure as well as to explore potential collaborations in a forum open to all interested AOM members. Caucus submissions are reviewed and evaluated by the Caucus Committee. 

We encourage you to think about the following questions as you prepare your proposal:

  • Does your proposal encourage the development of new ideas or address emerging topics?
  • Does your proposal appeal to and interest a broad audience of AOM members?
  • Does your proposal encourage collaboration and the free exchange of ideas?
  • Although not required, does your proposal address the conference theme, "Innovating for the Future"?
  • Does your proposal clearly express the goals and desired outcomes as a result of the Caucus session?

Session Orientations

As a submitter, you may indicate the general orientation of your proposal. The AOM 2024 program includes these orientations to help attendees identify sessions of interest. The types of orientations are:

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must follow the Caucus Submission Guidelines.
Important: Caucus proposals that do not follow the guidelines will not be reviewed.

  • Submitters do NOT need to be AOM members to submit a proposal to the Annual Meeting. However, if a proposal is accepted, participants must register to attend the Annual Meeting. All participants attending the Annual Meeting must be AOM Members and registered for the Annual Meeting.

Submission Instructions

  • All Caucus submissions must be made via the AOM Submission Center. The site opens for submissions in early December. The deadline for all submissions is Tuesday, 9  January 2024 at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5).

If you have any questions about Caucus submissions, please contact the Caucus Committee Chair, Michal Wilczewski. We look forward to receiving interesting and innovative caucus proposals.
