The Conference
AIB-SE is one of the two largest and most active regional divisions of the Academy of International Business’s 16 worldwide divisions. AIB-SE’s annual conference centers on the presentation of the newest ideas in international business to an international audience of academic scholars and business practitioners. The conference is characterized by a strong developmental focus, providing participants with a supportive and collegial platform to discuss and develop ideas, and mentoring and helping authors enhance their papers for publication.

The 2012 conference theme is “Institutions and Emerging Markets” and our keynote speaker will be AIB Fellow Dr. Oded Shenkar. The conference will be hosted by Florida Atlantic University, a renowned nationally-ranked research university and southeast Florida’s oldest public university. The official conference hotel is the The Riverside, Fort Lauderdale’s oldest hotel. The Riverside Hotel is located in short walking distance (0.3 miles / 500 meters) from Florida Atlantic University’s downtown campus (our 2012 conference location) on the famous Las Olas Boulevard, right on the Intercoastal Waterway with direct access to Fort Lauderdale Beach and to the many canals and waterways that gave Fort Lauderdale the nickname “Venice of America”.

The conference will feature competitive and interactive paper sessions, panel discussions on and around our annual theme, a doctoral student consortium and meet-the-editors session, a journal paper development workshop with the International Journal of Emerging Markets, sponsored by Emerald, a welcome reception by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance including a tour of the Fort Lauderdale port (the second largest cruise port in the world and one of the world’s largest cargo ports), and several social networking events including our annual welcome reception, dinner gala and award ceremony and annual luncheon. All accepted conference papers will be published in the 2012 AIB-SE Conference Proceedings and the best papers will be invited for submission to two special journal issues, one thematic issue on emerging markets published by Emerald’s International Journal of Emerging Markets and a special issue by AIB-SE’s own journal, International Business: Research, Teaching and Practice. The conference will further feature several awards, including an overall best conference paper award, a best thematic paper award on emerging markets, two best student paper awards (undergraduate and graduate), an overall best conference reviewer award as well as a best student reviewer award. These awards come with cash prices and AIB-SE may also award travel stipends for scholars and students from low-income countries and for students accepted for the doctoral student consortium to facilitate their attendance of the conference. 

One additional Benefit: The annual meeting of the Southern Management Association (SMA) will be held concurrently with our conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and so allows participants to attend two conferences on one travel budget.

We look forward to seeing you in Sunny Florida!
