Call for Participants

Strategic Leadership and Corporate Governance Interest Group
PhD/Junior Faculty and Paper Development Workshop

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

The Strategic Leadership and Corporate Governance Interest Group is offering a research focused senior PhD/junior faculty and paper development workshop at the 2012 Strategic Management Society meetings in Prague. Although all members of the IG are invited to participate, preference will be given to junior faculty who defended their dissertations after September 2007 and PhD students who have defended proposals and are on the market.

This workshop will include panel discussions and a breakout session. Senior faculty panels will discuss non-traditional paths to happiness and success as well as their point of view as those who have seen many junior faculty make choices and what trade-offs those choices entail, 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.

Panelists include Laura Cardinal (Houston), Peter Klein (Missouri), Bill Schulze (Utah), Tomi Laamanen (St. Gallen), Bruce Lamont, (Florida State) and Gerry McNamara (Michigan State). Several more will be announced shortly.

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 a five-page abstract proposal by August 13, 2012. Please include an additional page with your proposal that contains a 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.

Applicants will be informed by August 27, 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.
