The theme for the 2019 Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting in Las Vegas is “Moving. Forward. Together.” In line with this theme, the IACBE is soliciting proposals for conference presentations on a wide range of topics relating to business and management education.
All proposals for presentations will be peer-reviewed for acceptance. (Proposals for poster presentations will not be peer reviewed)
In 2019 IACBE will be structuring the presentation schedule around “tracks” related to the intended audience for the presentation. Each presentation should be developed to appeal to a specific audience: faculty, administration, or site visitors.
Administration track presentations should be designed to share best practices related to the oversight and administration of business programs. The intended audience would be deans, program chairs, directors, and faculty in a supervisory role.
Accreditation track presentations should share best practices in conducting site visits. The intended audience is site visit team members, site visit team chairs, and site visit mentors. The presentation should focus on a specific part of the site visit or of the self-study and provide practical tips that could help site visitors to be more effective in their site visits and to provide valuable feedback to the school.
Institution track presentations should provide specific practices related to the type of institution. For example, institutions that are faith-based, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Native American, proprietary, state institutions, etc. The presentation should address an area that relates specifically to the type of institution.
The IACBE welcomes proposals for presentations in other areas relating to best practices and excellence in business education, but preference will be given to presentations that follow the above guidelines.
Presentations – Peer-Reviewed
Suggested presentation types:
1. All proposals for conference presentations must include the following elements:
2. Concurrent session presentations should be designed to last for forty minutes, which includes the time for questions and answers.
Posters – Selected based on alignment with the theme and general merit
Posters provide an opportunity for an informal presentation featuring “give and take” with conference attendees. Presenting a poster is also a good way in which to discuss and receive feedback on a work in progress that has not been fully developed into a paper.
Please limit your proposal to 2 pages. A list of the poster titles and authors will be included in the conference proceedings and the program. Poster proposals are not published. All poster presentation proposals should include the following:
Presentations and Posters should not have been previously published or used as a poster submission.
The deadline for submission is November 30, 2018. Individuals who submit proposals will be notified in December regarding acceptance decisions for inclusion in the ACAM program.
All proposals must be submitted electronically as email attachments in MSWord format to: email@example.com
