Call for Participants

Competitive Strategy Interest Group
Junior Faculty and Paper Development Workshop

Saturday, October 6, 2012 13:00 - 18:30

The Competitive Strategy Interest Group is offering a research focused junior faculty and paper development workshop at the 2012 Strategic Management Society meetings in Prague, Czech Republic. Although all members of the Competitive Strategy IG are invited to participate, preference will be given to junior faculty who defended their dissertations after September 2007. Interested individuals do not have to be registered to attend the 2012 SMS Annual Conference, however, non-conference attendees will only be considered if there is space remaining after conference attendees are accepted.

This workshop will include panel discussions and breakout sessions. Senior faculty panels will discuss critical aspects of the research and publication process, ways to craft a successful research program, future directions in competitive strategy research, and other questions of concern for junior faculty. A breakout session will provide opportunities for participants to discuss and receive feedback on their work in an informal setting.

The co-chairs of the faculty panel are Asli Arikan (Ohio State University) and Giambattista Dagnino (University of Catania, Italy). The senior faculty participants will be announced at a later date.

Please note that space will be limited in order to ensure a high level of interaction among all participants. In order to participate, individuals should upload their submission by August 13, 2012 using the upload function on this website.

Please submit one, six-page document file which has two parts: 1) one-page statement committing to attend the workshop if accepted, permission to distribute submitted works to session participants, and a commitment to prepare a one-page review of other papers in your assigned breakout session, and 2) five-page abstract proposal. Please use your First.Last name when you are naming the file to be uploaded.

Applicants will be informed by August 20, 2012 whether their proposal was accepted. The workshop organizers will group accepted proposals with others that are similar in topic and/or methodology and distribute them to conference participants. Prior to the workshop, participants in each group will prepare written comments and feedback on the other papers in their group. They will exchange feedback during the paper development portion of the workshop, with each group's discussion being facilitated by one or more experienced scholar(s) familiar with the topic or method in question.
