The STR Division is seeking applications for STR co-sponsorship of locally-organized and run conferences that will happen over the next year (including from April, 2024 to April 2025, but preferably not in August, 2024).
The STR Division leadership recognizes the opportunity to support the strategic management field through additional conferences and gatherings that are distinct from the AoM Annual Meeting. Smaller and more intimate conferences offer the opportunity for more focused research discussions, to facilitate networking opportunities, and to allow scholars who are unable to attend the AoM Annual Meeting to engage in scholarly discussion. Our effort aims to extend and build on the success of conferences organized by the STR Division Global Representatives. We envision supporting locally-organized conferences that foster both in-person or virtual delivery. While there is no restriction on the geographic location of the conference, the theme needs to relate to the field of strategic management.
The STR Division aims to primarily support these conferences via co-sponsoring and branding. In addition, we may send one or more STR Division members (typically current or former members of the leadership team) to help with consortia, PDWs, panels or other research activities at the conference. We are also open to STR leadership playing other roles.
Applications should be submitted (in English) to STR Division Chair Louise Mors at the email below. Applications should clearly indicate the objective of the conference and its importance to the field of strategic management. In addition, applications should indicate the conference name, the names and positions/affiliations of the conference organizers, the local university/organization that is providing space (if there is one), the intended size of the conference as well as any currently committed participants. Please specify the role that you envision for a member of the STR leadership in your conference.
Current elected officers of the STR Division will review submissions based on the anticipated contribution to the field and STR leadership willingness/ability to attend the conference. For in-person conferences, we may cover the travel fees of the STR representative(s).
Please send your questions and/or applications to Division Chair Louise Mors at firstname.lastname@example.org
