The International Corporate Governance Society (ICGS) announces a call
for papers to be presented at the 4th Annual ICGS Conference. This year’s
theme is "Navigating Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets", but
studies outside of emerging markets are also welcome. The conference will
be held October 12-14, 2018 in
Shanghai, China. Fudan University will be hosting the event. The welcome
reception will occur on Friday evening, October 12 and a
closing reception will be held on Sunday evening, October 14. Since inception,
the Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance has served as
the principal sponsor of the conference and will once again underwrite the 4th
annual conference. Its financial support enables us to lower our
registration fees and yet provide a top quality experience for participants.
This year's keynote speaker is Professor Jeong-Bon Kim, Ph.D., Chaired Professor and Acting Head of the Department of Accountancy, City University of Hong Kong. Please mark your calendars for the annual general meeting on Saturday, October 13 immediately after our welcome luncheon. Please click here for additional conference information.
We are accepting submissions of extended abstracts and panel proposals starting February 1 until April 1st. Please click here if you are interested in submitting an extended abstract or panel proposal. The conference hotel will be the five star Crowne Plaza, in walking distance from conference meeting rooms.
The society continues to grow and offer benefits beyond the annual conference. Including free subscription to the Annals of Corporate Governance, a semi-annual newsletter, opportunities to assume a leadership role in the field, and newly forming interest groups (details forthcoming).
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like any additional information about ICGS and/or the conference.
We hope to see you this fall in Shanghai!
