Dear AIB-L Subscribers,

Thank you to everyone who submitted a paper or a panel proposal to the AIB
2018 conference within the new deadline. I am very pleased to report that
the submissions have been strong, and we are all excited with a great
program shaping up for our annual conference in Minneapolis, with plenaries
and showcase panels planned from business leaders, educators and scholars
all over the world, and exciting social events including the gala dinner at
the brand new US Bank Stadium where the 2018 Super Bowl will also be held
in a couple months.

At the same time, we have also received many requests the past week for
extension from authors who either became aware of our new deadline late and
could not submit in time, or who had to rush their submission so that they
could meet the new deadline.  Given that this is only the second year for
our new early deadline (which will be in late November permanently from now
on), we would like to offer a slight deadline extension to our members to
give them another weekend to work on their manuscripts. The submission
system will remain open until *Tuesday, December 5 *for new submissions.

This is also a golden opportunity for those of you who had not yet made up
their minds on whether to attend the Minneapolis conference. It was the *only
US city* on the Wall Street Journal's "Where to Travel in 2018
outlining 10 hot destinations in the world this year, and also made Smarter
Travel's "9 Places That Aren’t on Your Bucket List (But Should Be)
As the home to 15 companies on the Forbes Global 2000 (including 3M,
Medtronic, General Mills, Ecolab, Target, and Best Buy) and the largest
private company in the US (Cargill), the city certainly carries a lot of
relevance for IB researchers as well (site visits to some of these
companies are in the plans).

If you have already submitted a manuscript and would like to upload a
revised version, please email it to [log in to unmask] and we will
replace your submission in the system; please do not resubmit the
manuscript as a new submission.

We look forward to seeing you all in Minneapolis!
