Bridging scholarship, teaching and practice.

Conference Theme:   Crafting the Future

IBAM welcomes you!  Whether you are a veteran researcher, a management consultant practitioner, a student, or a new faculty member, there is a place for you in the Institute of Behavioral and Applied Management. We encourage newcomers and those with experience alike to participate in informative, lively and engaging sessions. IBAM offers a friendly, collegial atmosphere to present your research, get helpful feedback, and move your work toward publication. IBAM provides helpful reviews, career development workshops, and a respectful approach to academic rigor.

Join us  on the campus of San Jose State University in California for our 26th IBAM conference.  Lodging will be available at San Jose State University campus housing for $230 for all three nights.  Area hotels are also avialable.

Participate as a presenter, reviewer, session chair, discussant, volunteer, or division chair.  IBAM welcomes management educators, business practitioners, and students to share their ideas, research, and experiences in a friendly and supportive environment.   Session discussions are stimulating, informative, and broad-based. 

IBAM warmly welcomes you as an individual and a colleague. Executives, managers, professionals, and students are all members and active participants in IBAM’s annual conferences.

Review To become an IBAM reviewer, contact the program chair, Mary Pisnar (mpisnar@bw.edu).  IBAM seeks serious reviewers who will commit to providing a thorough review of academic and practitioner work within their fields.  We ask that you commit to review no more than three (3) submissions and that you commit to a 2-3 week turnaround of submission that you are assigned.  We value your expertise and time.

Submit your original paper, symposium, workshop, or idea incubator proposal for anonymous peer review in to our reviewing portal at Scholastica (follow the link). The IBAM conference is an excellent outlet for completed research, work-in-progress, and the sharing of experiences in a variety of management sub-fields through refereed paper sessions, symposia, workshops, and panel discussions.

Consider one of these categories of submission – one is sure to fit your research!

Full Paper

A completed paper that is being considered for publication.  It might be a work in progress, work for which you are still collecting developmental feedback.  It might also be a “bottom drawer” paper you are trying to revive.  All full papers will be automatically considered for best paper awards. 

Student Papers

A subcategory of “Full Papers” is a student paper. One author (ideally the first author) must be a student and must attend. Undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral learners are welcome. “Best Student Paper” award(s) will be selected from this category. Sponsoring faculty members should encourage institutional or private support of students whose papers are accepted. Submissions should include a statement that the student will attend the conference.

Symposia or Workshop

Either panel or presenter format. Proposals that cross disciplines and include multiple institutions are highly encouraged.  A panel or workshop presentation is allotted extended time on the program, so the proposal should be well-detailed and show potential added value for conference attendees. Submissions should include a 3-5 page proposal and a statement that all contributors intend to register for and attend the conference.

                                         

Symposia and workshops are not double-blind reviewed, but are selected by the Program Chair for inclusion in the program. All authors involved in developing accepted symposia and workshops should plan to attend the conference as presenters.

Idea Incubator

A research idea that is still being “kicked around.”  At a minimum, idea incubators should have a literature review, hypotheses or research questions, and some idea of methodology.  Idea incubators will be placed into their own sessions to allow feedback from peers in a more informal setting.

Submission Guidelines

 1.           All submissions must be entirely original and may not be under concurrent consideration or accepted for presentation elsewhere. You may submit up to two papers and/or proposals in any or all of the divisions.  This includes papers and proposals that are co-authored.

 

 2.           All submissions should include three keywords and a 75-word abstract. Indicate the IBAM division to which you are making the submission. Submissions should be double-spaced with one-inch margins, typed in a 12-point font, and follow APA format. All submissions should reflect appropriate academic research form.

 

 3.           Guidelines by submission type:

  • Full Papers  should not exceed 30 pages (total – including references). 

  • Symposia & Workshop Proposals  should submit a three to five page proposal outlining details of the symposia or workshop presentation, along with a statement that all presenters intend to register for the conference.

  • Idea Incubator Session  should have a draft paper including literature review, hypotheses or research questions, and some discussion of methodology

 

 4.         Submission Deadline:  May 17, 2019. Submit your paper, proposal, or summary by uploading it into the IBAM Conference submissions page in Scholastica (follow the link) and following the instructions for submissions located at that site. Priority submission decisions will be made by February 28, 2018. 

 

 

 5.        Author Information:  Do not include author information.  Author information will be recorded on the submission page at the Scholastica site.  The uploaded document should be free of any identifying author indications and the document “Properties” data should be cleared as well. All submissions are double blind-reviewed.  Preparation of your title page should include:

 

  • The title of your submission

  • The submission type:  Full Paper, Symposia, Workshop, or Idea Incubator.  Student papers should also indicate “Student” on the title page.

  • The division to which you are submitting (Divisions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or Special Topics).

 

 6.      Submission Process: Follow the link to the IBAM submission page at Scholastica (follow the link).  Note that there is a $20.00 fee per submission.

 

 7.      Register: All accepted program participants must register and attend the conference.  Registration fees ($340.00) must be paid by June 1, 2018, and cannot be returned after this date for any reason.  Your conference registration fee covers annual IBAM membership, all meals (except Friday night), snacks and gratuities. Your registration fee does not cover the cost of hotel or transportation to and from the conference.  Register early as fees increase to $390.00 after June 1, 2018.

 

 8.     Lodging:   Some lodging will be available on San Jose State University campus as previously noted.  San Jose State University University provides the following list of hotels within a 10-mile radius of campus:  

Best Papers are Eligible for JBAM Consideration and Journal Publication

The Best Papers in each Division are eligible for publication consideration in the Journal of Behavioral and Applied Management (JBAM). The journal provides an international outlet for its contributors. To learn more about our journal, please visit https://jbam.scholasticahq.com/

Student Scholarships Awarded    

In support of student scholars, IBAM may award a $250 best paper scholarship in its student classifications. In addition, a special student rate applies for conference registration. A student must declare (check box) student status at time of submission. Eligible papers may be co-authored with a faculty member, but the student must be first author, attend the conference and must present the paper. Faculty sponsors should inform students of conference costs and encourage institutional or personal support of attendance. Student scholarships will be presented with the award at the conference award luncheon.
