We realize that a virtual conference makes it more difficult to meet and interact with others at the conference.  We are working on the logistics of hosting some type of online reception, or other format, to foster engagement among conference attendees. Every effort will be made to accommodate for the time zone differences of our international presenters.

A Certificate of Attendance will be provided for attendance (and presentation of research) once the conference concludes.

Abstracts/proposals (Preference given to themed proposals):

We require a one to two-page proposal (Word or PDF formats) for one of the following: an empirical, theoretical, or pedagogical research paper; a practical case study; an emerging approach to teaching business ethics; or, a panel session of business and academic leaders discussing problems and challenges concerning ethics and ethical decision making in business.

Full paper submissions will be considered for the Patrick Primeaux Best Paper Award selected through a blind referee process based on the quality of the submission and their relation to the theme of the conference.  To be considered for the award, full papers must be submitted by September 1, 2020 and conference registration and payment by September 15.
