Leir Professor of International Business at New Jersey Institute of Technology's School of Management and Director of Leir Center for Financial Research. We believe that all members and friends of the Institute, including all past, present and potential future participants in our conferences, have already noticed that for almost one year now, we have been partnering successfully with the International Academy for Advancement of Business ResearchT (IAABRT). Also, we have been watching with a growing alarm the crimes against humanity committed by an organization acting in a part of the Middle East, and which has been known under the names ISIL, IS, and ISIS. As socially responsible members of society, we ardently condemn these heinous crimes, and we feel that consistent with our personal values and the guiding principles of the Institute of Strategic and International StudiesR, we must change our acronym to InstSISWorldR. Therefore, from now on, you can see this acronym, along with its shortened version, or InstSISR also legally acquired by our organization, in all official announcements made by the Institute of Strategic and International StudiesR. This year, InstSISWorld and IAABR held successful conferences in Key West, Florida (Keynote Speaker: Prof. Dr. Charles Wankel, Professor of Management at St. John's University's Tobin College of Business, New York; recipient of many awards from the Academy of Management; and Vice Rector at the Poznan University of Business in Poland); in Paris (Keynote Speaker: Prof. Dr. Sheila Puffer, University Distinguished Professor and Professor of International Business, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA; former Editor of The Academy of Management Executive; and a former member of the Academy of Management's Board of Governors); in Venice (Keynote Speaker: Prof. Dr. Joseph Rallo, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Texas Tech University System); and in Orlando (Keynote Speaker: Prof. Dr. Khalid Alkhathlan, Dean of King Saud University's Business School in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia). At all these conferences, we were very happy to notice that the number of participants was growing, as well as was the number of represented countries which steadily surpassed the figure 50! Moreover, we are very proud of our growing diversity, as our participants came from various countries and all continents around the world!
