Dear AIB List serve Moderator:
Please post the announcement.
FIU/AIB Best Theory Paper Award
Florida International University, in conjunction with the Academy of International Business, proudly announces the 2018 Best Theory Paper Award for the upcoming annual Academy of International Business 2018 conference. This award will be presented at the AIB annual meeting in Minneapolis to recognize a paper submission that contributes to theory building and development in International Business.
We are seeking conceptual papers that will challenge the conventional wisdom and foster new theoretical insights to explain contemporary issues faced by organizations involved in international business.
Only conceptual papers accepted for a Competitive Session at the AIB 2018 annual conference are eligible for the award. In addition to self-nominations, each track chair will also be asked to nominate papers to be considered for the award based on reviewer input and their own assessment. An independent award committee will evaluate the nominees. The author(s) of the winning manuscript will be announced at the AIB Awards Ceremony on the last day of the conference, and will receive both a commemorative and a monetary award.
On behalf of the award committee, I welcome you all to submit a manuscript to the AIB 2018 Annual Meeting to be considered for the FIU/AIB Best Theory Paper Award.
