Stronger Together: Building sustainable local and global partnerships for a better future
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our lives and how we do business has ultimately changed forever. The shift to online and virtual spaces in support of public health has forced us all to find new ways of connecting and doing business. While the end of public health measures does not appear imminent, we have all come to realize a new normal, elements of which may well endure into the post-COVID world.
With this global shift, along with growing social, economic, environmental and political tensions worldwide, there is a significant need to partner, collaborate, and navigate through the issues together. As business academics, we have an important role to play in facilitating meaningful partnerships built on a foundation of knowledge and truth. Partnerships can take many forms. At ASAC 2022, we invite you to join the conversation on what it means to be stronger together and how we can build sustainable partnerships locally and globally to support a better future.
We welcome submissions on this theme and relevant to one of the ASAC divisions:
- Business History
- Case Studies
- Entrepreneurship/Family Business
- Gender & Diversity in Organizations
- Health Care Management
- Human Resource Management
- Information Systems
- International Business
- Management Education
- Management Science
- Organizational Behaviour
- Organizational Theory
- Production & Operations Management
- Social Responsibility
- Technology & Innovation Management
- Tourism & Sport Management
Over the past few years, we have all grown accustomed to virtual events, meetings and conferences given the need for physical distancing. While we will proceed cautiously and within the parameters of public health for in-person gatherings, we also want to continue welcoming attendees who would choose to attend virtually for a variety of reasons, including environmental impact, financial resources, and other commitments. We can do this in a few ways, one of which is offering an online component for the conference to promote virtual access.
Being that a hybrid conference format is new for ASAC, the first few years will require experimentation, analysis, and an understanding that this is a work-in-progress. We appreciate your understanding to this end, as we are currently researching our options, the technical systems required, and potential formats for hybrid delivery of the 2022 conference.
In the submission process, you will be asked if you plan to attend ASAC 2022 in-person, virtually, or if you are unsure. This will further assist us in developing the best possible format for the conference. We will provide more information about the conference format as it becomes available, and as we look to the future, we are committed to continuing to innovate how we convene for future conferences.
HEALTH GUIDELINES AND VACCINATION POLICY
For the in-person conference, we will be following the health guidelines and applicable vaccination policies for Nova Scotia, Dalhousie and any other applicable policies related to in-person events.
ASAC 2022 will accept original papers, written in English or French and not previously published or presented elsewhere. All contributions will be peer reviewed; best paper awards will be given by each division.
