The aim of this Paper Development Workshop is to bring together young and experienced scholars working on the topics of emerging technologies and ecosystems, to discuss important issues connecting these two research arenas and develop high-quality papers and theories in a friendly and supportive environment. The workshop will connect mentors and attendees and foster deep developmental work on individual papers and discussions around current challenges and opportunities in the research areas around new technologies and ecosystems.
The workshop will be on Thursday and Friday, 14th and 15th May 2020, and will be held at the campus of Kedge Business School in Bordeaux, France. The workshop has limited places, and the selection of papers will be competitive, based on an extended abstract of up to 2000 words (excluding references). The deadline for submission of extended abstracts is 20th December 2019. Participants will be notified of decisions by 31st January 2020. Full paper submissions are expected by 1st April 2020.
Mentors who have tentatively committed to attend include Raghu Garud (Pennsylvania State University), Shaz Ansari (Cambridge Judge Business School), Janet Bercovitz (University of Colorado Boulder), Marcel Bogers (University of Copenhagen), Valentina Tartari (Copenhagen Business School), Hans Berends (VU Amsterdam), Carmelo Cennamo (Copenhagen Business School) and Pierpaolo Andriani (Kedge Business School).
The workshop will also feature keynote and panel discussions highlighting the current challenges and future directions for research on emerging technologies and ecosystems. We are calling for papers that are in developmental stage and which can benefit from the intense feedback sessions planned for this workshop, which have the potential to make an impact and be developed towards publication in high-quality journals. This workshop will be highly valuable for doctoral students and early-career scholars, but more experienced colleagues are also welcome. We aim to attract papers across different fields of research related to technologies and ecosystems, from different theoretical and methodological perspectives.
The conference fee is €200 for faculty, €125 for doctoral students (with valid student ID at the time of the conference). The conference fee includes registration, morning and afternoon refreshments, lunches and a conference social event, which will include wine tasting and dinner. Transportation and accommodation are not covered and would be the responsibility of the conference attendees.
