    35th Annual Conference of the International Association for Business and Society (IABS) 

    Thursday, June 13 - Sunday, June 16, 2024

    (Preconference Writing Camp and Doctoral Students Consortium: June 10 - 13)

    Submission Deadline: December 11, 2023

    The Interplay between Business, Society, and the Government


    Amidst persisting - and in many cases, worsening societal problems - business and society scholars must ponder the need for newer and more effective approaches to design and implement Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Corporate Sustainability (CS), and Business Ethics initiatives. These approaches should give special attention to how they intersect with public policies. Ultimately, the effectiveness of CSR, CS and business ethics programs hinge on achieving concrete outcomes, which demand not just authentic corporate efforts but also an enabling public policy framework. The thematic focus of the 2024 IABS conference is to contemplate the evolving Interplay among Business, Society, and the Government although a broader array of topics of interest to business and society scholars will also be explored. 

    A detailed Call for Proposals (CfP) is attached and available through the IABS website


    We invite submissions for five types of sessions including discussion sessions, paper presentation sessions, symposia, workshops, and innovative sessions. Before submitting, please carefully review the descriptions and submission requirements for each session type provided on the CfP link on the IABS 2024 webpage.

    Submissions can be made through this link before Dec 11, 2023.

    All proposals must be single-spaced, have numbered pages, and will undergo a peer-review process. However, it's important to note that symposia and workshop proposals, which include the names of the submitters, will not be subject to blind reviews.


    The Conference will take place in Annapolis. This historic town, now the capital of the US state of Maryland, and once the capital of the United States during the signing of the Treaty of Paris, which marked the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, not only holds historical significance but also boasts natural beauty on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. The town is conveniently close to the nation's capital, Washington, DC.

    We eagerly anticipate your participation in IABS 2024. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Conference Chair, Rajat Panwar, from Oregon State University, at rajat.panwar@oregonstate.edu
