The 8th annual conference of the International Corporate Governance Society will take place from Saturday to Sunday 12-13 November 2022 at the University of Miami (The U.S.A.). The conference is intended to provide a forum for international academics and policymakers to showcase and discuss the latest corporate governance research issues and practices. The keynote speakers for the conference are Robert J. Jackson, Jr. (a law professor at New York University and former SEC Commissioner) and Wei Jiang (a finance professor at Columbia University). The conference also holds two panel discussions on "Corporate Governance in a Digital Age" and "Artificial Intelligence and ESG."

Since the overarching mission of the ICGS is to bring together international governance scholars from multiple disciplines, original research on all areas of corporate governance is very much appreciated. Submissions must build upon previously unpublished and not-yet presented original research. You may submit either a full paper or a research proposal for the conference. In both cases, we are looking for research that will advance the field of corporate governance. The conference includes six tracks: (1) Corporate Governance in a Digital Era, (2) Internal Governance and Strategic Leadership, (3) Ownership, (4) External Corporate Governance Mechanisms, (5) Corporate Governance and Stakeholders, and (6) Comparative Corporate Governance. A full paper should not be longer than 40 double-spaced pages (including abstract, references, tables, and figures). A proposal submission should include the following sections: (1) Abstract: 200 to 300 words description that summarizes the overall study; (2) Proposal: Narrative description of the conceptual or empirical study; (3) Supporting material: Tables, figures, and references that support the proposal. Overall, a proposal should not exceed 10 single-spaced pages in length or 3,000 words.
Papers or proposals can be submitted starting on March 1, 2022, and must be submitted by 12 midnight (EST) on June 1, 2022 in order to be considered for conference presentation. All submissions must be done through our online conference management system, which is accessed through the 'Conferences' tab of the ICGS website (https://www.herbert.miami.edu/faculty-research/business-conferences/icgs2022/paper-submissions.html).
Decisions on submissions regarding their inclusion in the conference program will be communicated to the authors by July 29, 2022. The very best papers and proposals will be considered for the best conference paper award. The author(s) who win(s) this award will be recognized at the conference.
