The 8th IAM Conference will be hosted by the School of Business of the Getulio Vargas Foundation in São Paulo (FGV-EAESP) from December, 8th to December, 10th 2013. The conference theme is World in Transition: business, multiculturalism and society. It makes reference to the challenges global managers face in a complex and dynamic Latin American environment while dealing with economical, geopolitical, social and cultural changes. How to integrate dissimilar cultures in the region? How to promote an inclusive environment and cope with inequalities and politics? How local and multinational strategies can interact with local development? And how to deal with challenges related to education and productivity in public and private organizations? Those are some challenges salient to both practitioners and scholars. With a view towards debating this multifaceted setting of Latin America, the conference is organized around eight tracks: 1. Entrepreneurship and Family Business 2. International Business 3. Organizational Behavior and Human Resources Management 4. Public Administration 5. Competitive Strategy 6. Supply Chain and Innovation Management 7. Organizational Theory and Critical Management Studies 8. World in Transition and Management in Iberoamerican Countries The conference is organized around competitive paper presentations and round tables with guest speakers, including one meet-the-editor table with Rita Campos e Cunha (Management Research), Mustafa Ozbilgin (British Journal of Management); Pervez Ghauri (International Business Review), Ilan Alon (International Journal of Emerging Markets), Jorge Carneiro (Brazilian Administration Review), and Ann Cunnlife (Management Learning).
