DAY 1: We meet early on Thursday 24 November for the Research Symposium. This is a full day of research paper presentations, panel sessions, insights from our invited keynote speakers and a panel of Editors. We conclude with a walk through the Botanic Gardens and an early dinner, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the tropical evening of Brisbane.
DAY 2: We continue on Friday with paper and keynote speaker presentations, and small group Paper Development Workshops in which mentors and mentees are matched. We also plan ‘spotlights’ on, for example, teaching and education, and developing research in Oceania. We’ll also hold the Annual General Meeting, with a presentation by Professor Peter Liesch on current initiatives and future directions of Academy of International Business.
Peter Liesch is Professor of International Business at the UQ Business School and President-elect for Academy of International Business. His research interests are in firm internationalization processes and international business operations in their entirety. Peter’s work appears in the Journal of International Business Studies, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of World Business, Management International Review, International Business Review, among others. He was awarded a Fiftieth Anniversary Silver Medal for publications in JIBS, 2019.
DAY 3: Saturday 26 November is set aside for developmental research methods workshops. There will also be spaces available for those who wish to meet to develop cross-institutional collaborative research projects. So do consider lingering in sunny Queensland over the weekend!
Publication Opportunity: Paper presentations with appropriate fit to the editorial agenda of CPOIB will be scrutinised by members of the editorial team for a possible accelerated review process.
