In addition to the traditional academic disciplinary tracks, new this year, we are hosting a track for professionals in Business Practice the Business Practice track for practicing professionals. This track specifically invites practicing business professionals to engage in advancing thought leadership through their submission of short reflective and insightful essays (~5 pages) that address the conference theme, from their practice perspective. These short essays could then turn into white papers, blog posts, LinkedIn articles, keynote speeches, podcast content, or practice-based scholarly publications. Practicing professionals in this track benefit from the dialog and feedback from reviewers and conference attendees, and the partnering opportunities to collaborate with academic scholars on future research or scholarly practice publications.
We welcome collaborative paper sessions, professional development workshops, symposiums, and other sessions related to the theme. Submit your research papers, symposia proposals, professional development workshop proposals, short papers, and other creative works. Acceptance decisions will be made by early August 2021.
