This conference will be a platform of discussion for practitioners as well as for academics. In other words, you can also participate in the conference without submitting a paper. The conference will be an excellent networking opportunity.


The International Business Conference is designed to bring together current research from the fields of international business, multinational corporations, foreign direct investment, and small and medium sized multinationals with a particular focus on international political risk management. The objective is to analyse patterns and forces, which influence political risk management in today’s fast changing world affairs with regard to multinational corporations’ foreign operations. The conference offers an excellent opportunity to meet thought leaders and professionals from around the world to exchange information and ideas on a variety of international business topics. Full papers, extended abstracts and case study presentations are invited. All accepted extended abstracts (minimum 3 pages) and full papers will be published in the conference proceedings volume and delivered during the conference.


Local Attractions: There will be some social programmes for those participants who are willing to join. Würzburg is an excellent city with very attractive surroundings (Please see: Würzburg: http://www.wuerzburg.de/en/visitors/tourist-information1/index.html).  It is also centre of one of the best well-known wine locations in Germany (Franconian Wine Country: http://www.franconian-wine-country.com/?forceLanguage).
