Submission closing for the 2016 IAM Conference, Dublin Aug 31- Sept 2nd

The deadline for submission of abstracts for the 2016 Irish Academy of Management Conference is February 29th.

The 2016 Irish Academy of Management Conference is being hosted by the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, Dublin, from Aug 31st to Sept 2nd, 2016.

The conference theme is ‘Ireland 2016: Re-imagining business and the role of ethics’. 2016 is an historic year for Ireland as we commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising. The official commemorations invite us to remember our past and imagine a better future. As part of these commemorations, the 2016 IAM Conference will examine ethics in business - past, present and future. We invite papers and roundtable symposiums that explore the concept of ethics in its broadest sense and across multiple levels – individual, organisational, sectoral, national and international – and enhance our understanding of building a sustainable and ethical economy and society.

We welcome contributions from within business and management schools, but also from other disciplines across academia and from civil society, NGOs and practitioners.

While the conference will have a strong Irish and ethical focus, we warmly welcome international scholars and papers from all business disciplines on a wide range of topics.

Abstracts of 1500 words are due by February 29th for papers and roundtable symposiums. If accepted, full papers (6,000-8,000 words) will be due by June 30th. Submission details and further information about the conference can be found on the conference website.

A Doctoral Colloquium will also form part of the conference and we welcome submissions from PhD students at all stages of their doctoral studies. Abstracts of 500 words are required to be submitted by February 29th.

The deadline for all abstract submissions is February 29th 2016. All abstracts will be double peer-reviewed. More information is available on the conference website:

We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin!
