As the organisers of the
JOINT 44th Academy of International Business (UK&Ireland
Chapter) Conference and 6th Reading International Business
Conference, we are pleased to invite you to join us on 6-8 April
2017 at Henley Business School, University of Reading. The theme for the conference is -
Contemporary Issues in International Business: Are
we seeing the tail-end of globalization?
The merged conference will
combine the best elements of both conferences. We will maintain
the tradition of the AIB-UKI conferences by offering a doctoral
consortium. We also seek to encourage a broader variety of papers
to the parallel sessions. At the same time, we intend to maintain
the Reading tradition of open-ended debates and interactive
previous AIB-UK&I meetings, this conference hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for
International Business will begin in the
afternoon of the 6th April 2017 with the Doctoral Colloquium,
the Conference Welcome and Opening Plenary at 5.30 pm. It will
close by 5pm on the 8th April 2017.

be considered for a competitive or for a poster session. Accepted
papers will ultimately be allocated to either types of sessions
after considering suggestions of referees.

to restrict the number of papers from the same authors to a
