Dear colleagues,

We want to draw your attention to a very interesting and pleasant opportunity. At the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui the Hawaiian International Conference on Systems Sciences (HICSS) will be organized in January 7-10, 2020. The conference is a multidisciplinary and it is very suitable for International Business researchers. To illustrate there is, for instance, a minitrack on “Culture, International business, and knowledge systems”

Papers can  explore the impact and role of culture on managing knowledge and designing and implementing knowledge systems within local and global groups and organizations. This is crucial for instance for internationalizing firms and already global organizations. Success of their international business operations and marketing is depending on effective learning and knowledge coordination.

The conference covers broad issues related to culture (sub-cultures as well as national cultures) and knowledge systems. We are open to all methodological and theoretical approaches and welcome papers as well as research-in-progress papers from researchers and practitioners.

Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:

If you have interest in Culture, IB and knowledge systems related topics, please contact:
